One thing that has crossed my mind is that it would be fun for a good bunch of us to meet up for a Lanza traning ride, perhaps some time late March?

Was anything agreed on this? I was going to ask about the same thing. I am going to go to Lanza anyway March end so please post here or PM as desired.

OC - I'd think 600 grit should do the job


Swimming - not since November but I did 2km that time
Biking - 100 mile a week in commutes, longest ride otherwise 40
Running - bits n pieces

Currently life or rather work is winning the battle for my time, not happy!

Progress ,,, mmm

Not as much as I would have liked in terms of extension but currently catching up fast on weekly volume but fading in strength as fast due to adductor cramping.

No winter rides for me since I crashed in 2011. Same as Rafi however, 2h is pretty much my limit so I have to double book my cycling or just keep it almost daily. My plan has a 6days a week bike cycle 2 weeks from now anyway. My legs are killing me so adaptations seem to be working fine.

Off to swim now at lunchtime and tonight I will do a short warmup overgear turbo and a 6 mile run.

That was almost the whole of 2012 for me. Not happy indeed. Hope you get some rhythm back soon for your sanity.

As you were

thinking of pirate t-shirts.....
do we need a common theme / text on them...
or is that just plain sad?

Something like

  • 'extravalanza!!'
  • pirate european tour 2013
  • i am a crap triathlete
  • my girlfriend went to kona and all I got was this crappy t-shirt
  • any other far more witty suggestions welcome

or just say its a bad idea.... I understand
