Just entered 2004 London Tri, Oly distance. Not done Oly yet. Planning to do Windsor before I get there.

Anyway, London Tri entry prices are fixed till end of Sept so if you get in early, you might save a few £...

Same as you Rehoused, haven't done an oly yet and have been thinking about London but hadn't realsied you entered soooo early!! What is Windsor like -date, distance, open swim,etc. I haven't done an open water, mass start, wet suited swim yet and that's why I'm hovering!! Guess 'll have to make my mind up soon

I have only done open water events with mass starts so I guess I am used to them - and they are great fun!

Windsor is superbly organised, swim in the thames, available as sprint or oly distance. More details to be found at

Anyone point me towards details about the kids' bit at London? For a 13-year-old girl?

Will definitely enter early as its getting more and more popular each year. Five of my friends are doing it for the first time in 2004!

Hello. Hope you don't mind me joining in, I'm usually on but it's a bit quiet in there on weekends.

Just put my entry for London in this morning and can't wait. Everything I've heard makes it sound like a great race, so really looking forward to it. It does seem weird putting an entry in so early but races seem to be filling fast these days.

It is quiet on tritalk at weekends isn't it -is it because everyone is racing / serious training -so why arn't we, I often wonder!! But I have done 18 miles fairly seriously this am and got some of my "jobs" done!!
27/09/2003 at 12:53
I think the racing/training thing is a red herring, I actually think most of us on tritalk are signing in from work, which is why it's quiet at weekends. I unfortunately am at work now (some of us have to) but am going home in a quarter of an hour.

18 miles is serious stuff for a sat am run, I think that would make my bacon sarnies curdle. Am actually racing tomorrow at South Shrops Tri so am larding up on danish pastries today.

Tought you were doing the tri with the rest tomorrow. I can't log in at work -won't allow me into tritalk but can get into runners world -but feel guilty!!!
Good luck tomorrow, go for it -a bit envious really but there is always next season, see ya

Thanks. Don't ever feel guilty for logging on at work!! Off home now - bye.

I guess this thread is going to die for a bit now. Perhaps we can drag it out in 10 months.

yes we'll be old and decrepid by then.

btw chris your pic is a little disturbing. like something from edgar allen poe or hp lovecraft!

that is a picture taken in the work lift, when one of the lights was broken, using a mobile phone camera.
