I cant make it to the ride on the 2nd. I have then booked myself for the RideIt on the 3rd.

I'd suggest that May 19th maybe a tad too late

Do what Barlos is doing and class it as a brick session for Challenge Henley

Great - haven't been able to run for 4 weeks, so the marathon thingy bit should be a breeze

Oh dear .. but at least you're able to bike?  A marathon can be hobbled round...

I was thinking more of a stagger as there's lots of bars on the run leg - 26 mile pub crawl

How's your training going then?

I'm pah to run training anyway.  I did IMW in 5.35ish after doing no run training because of a bad achilles.  Then at Outlaw after doing lots and lots of running (ie London marathon), I did the run in 5.20!  15 measly minutes faster.  (I did go the wrong way and then gossiped all the way round .. but still!)

Happy with training.  Done a fair few 70-80 milers on the bike and 12+ mile runs.  Should probably swim more but it's boring!

My longest run so far is 7 miles so I think I will be joining the conga at the back  

Tomorrow I am going to bike in shorts and a tshirt in 20 degrees of sunshine with my own personal aid stations

Bike in shorts?  What a strange concept

Us lot are going get such a shock in Lanza after our weather we've had to train in!

I spent all last year saying 'all those people training for Lanza are lucky to have such good weather'

We are going to have winter all the way to May aren't we?  !!

Oh I don't know - I had to stop and remove a layer on a ride at some point last week. Although its looking nasty again tomorrow

Last Saturday I took off my inner gloves and cycled in just the outer ones!
