Blimey, well done Blisters. Winging it for me was a 6 mile run yesterday and a 14 mile bike today. 

Henley beer. yummy, but prefer Rebellion in Marlow to Breakspear in Henley, although I'm always happy for a taste test just to double check.

Brakspear, not Breakspear

I should know

Sorry schmunks.  Happy to be corrected.

But I might have to buy a bottle just to make sure.

Great. Woke up with a sore throat and have a slightly runny nose and have been sneezing occasionally. Generally I feel ok though. Question is, should I train?

I think the rule is, if it's above the neck train on (but perhaps not so hard) if its below the neck then don't.

If you feel OK you can still train imo.

In the same boat UB bloody kids and their germs   am training 'easy' and avoiding the pool today as I feel like I'm drowning already and don't think I'd survive

b*gger, it does indeed have that gurt great hill I was not looking forward to

19/02/2013 at 17:45

eek! Don't like the sound of that new "cheeky" hill. Better start practicing and might even have a drive out there this weekend for a little sampler. Looks like some fun bits added in though.

pm me if you're going out that way Soupy, as I'm planing to go over that way probably on sunday

19/02/2013 at 18:09

ok will do. Sunday it is. Anyone else? I just want to know what I've got to train towards and if I see how far I can get up it now then I'll have a good yardstick for how much I've improved later in the year.

Fraggle/Badger - Hope the colds go quickly.

Glad the course has finally been announced and that I went out on hiller route today for my 50min ride. I know that hill will be a lung buster but the long stretches of flat and fast roads can be just as hard pushing the big gear for ages without a break.

Soup/fFraggle - please report back if you go for a recce.

I'll be heading out that way over the weekend no doubt. Let me know when you ladies are planning to go.

But maybe do a proper recce ride sometime with everyone?

That hill is quiet nasty coming back up into Nettlebed!! Should be fun!

19/02/2013 at 18:20

I won't be doing a full recce. I plan to drive the whole course and ride a couple of hills to get an idea but meeting up with anyone on the way for joint wibble would be very welcome.

Do people fancy meeting at Starbucks on Sunday morning then - where we can drink lots of coffee, eat huge cakes and talk each other out of riding up and down them dam hills??

Oi!!  Rafi, I am watching you know !!!     Get yer arse out of starbucks and up them feckin hills.

19/02/2013 at 18:46

I could be talked into doing the 37 miles at a slow pace, and with a cake stop half way. I might have to get off and push up the hills at some point too but so long as you don't laugh at me (well not too much) I might agree to be sociable.   My longest ride this year has been 20 miles so I've got some training to do

Otherwise plan A and Rafs plan for starbucks.

People say nutrition is an extremely part of any training regime  Blueberry muffin = nutrition! Simples!
