being last doesn't matter, it is better than not bothering in the first place, and at this time of year a lot of people don't participate in events that do in the summer

107......... So there were 30 million in the country behind you !

Good result

Go Sarge

No coulda,shoulda,woulda for you well done you should be well chuffed

18/11/2012 at 18:36
Chuffed . Very smuug and with a war wound to boot.
I swam 400 in 8-09 and shoulda/coulda been faster but for taking car not to swim over/into others or flip turn.....

Very chuffed indeed, thank you everyone.

Top work Sarge, most chuffed for you! Onwards and upwards buddy!

Well done Sarge , saobotaged by an ASBO kurb and a counting issue and still finished.  Onwards and upwards.

Dammit Sarge, that swim time is faster than mine. I'm so glad that you didn't see me stick my foot out to trip you up.

107 finished that race, and you were one of them. 64 million did not even bother to enter. There's a load of couch potatoes within that number. As they say, you've got to be in it....

Indeed. I got a finishers medal at th e weekend. What did you do?

Ankle has calmed down a bit, swelling is reducing nicely and the bruise is presenting a lovelly vermillion stripe around the end of my leg. Lateral movement is still ather painfull, as is walking up/down stairs or on uneven pavement. Can flex/extend the foot in a straight line so maybe another days rest/grumpiness and then a turbo session to get the ball rolling so to speak

Might skip running until next week when the beuising should have subsided and pain has deminshed

Meanwhile my xmas 910 arrived and im staring at the box ...... I mean, christmas is not mandatory. I think i promised myself something for finishing..... and the OH would rather buy me socks and other uber useful stuff ... Id be doing her a favour really......

At the weekend ? 15 miles of hill walking in the Lakes and a 10 mile run

Didn't get any medals tho, although I did scoff a full cooked Englsh without a flicker of guilt

Take it steady with the ankle, they can take ages if you rush

Just had an acid test : 300m sprint between aurport terminals to get onto the right flight to dublin. As of landing, ankle isnt complaining too much

mine too . it keeps calling to me to take it out of it's box for a test drive/run/bike/swim. but to be honest i think the OH might have my knackers on a plate if i tampered with it before Christmas

Now THAT's the kind of motivational fighting talk I like to hear. Whatever I did do, it doesn't warrant a reply to a rhetorical question.

seems mine doesnt have any sticky tape 'stopping' me from messing with it. so its really about delayed gratification i suppose......

Yeah, that sounds good to me. I've got a marathon booked for January, as a bit of fun, so we'll see if I can better 3:28 this time, and definitely no walking. Maybe.

so annoying. want to train. would train (if OH would take an hour to go shopping). having to wait til lthe ankle is a consistent colour rather than red n white hoops

grrrr
