Blister - good list work mate

Badger - what the hell did you do on holiday to put on a stone?

Please stop talking about all the bike bling, the other half will kill me if i spend more money on tri rubbish. Very tempted by new wheels before Marlow HIM though

Been a good weeks training, just short of a bit of swimming at the moment but the shoulder is improving so not all is lost. I also think having to look at my stroke and doing som many drills will only be good for my swim technique in the long run.

I think I need to cut down on the Friday "liquid iron" intake, I think I'm seeing double.
Brooko, nothing personal, but if the List Fairy spots that you've not respected the Queen's Alphabet you'll be in deep shtrubble.

I'll see if I can help you out.

Training? I think that I have to call it a lie-down week. That's a bit less than a cut back week. 2 runs on heavy legs and er feck all else.

Thanks Blisters !

Great work pulling up the list of names. 

Sorry ive not posted here very often, I was focussed on Lanza and extremely busy with work to think to much about Henley.

I'll deffo be there and will try and visit the thread more often.

There's not a massive group of us but you dont need numbers to have a good time, it'll be what we make it.

As its the Pirate Championship race we'll be having an awards ceremony the day after the race so please hang around, for those with lifts/staying another night there will be copious consumption of beer.  Not forgetting the highly coveted trophys up for grabs.  Fastest Male, Fastest Female, Best Improver and Best Novice

Slowest swimmer?

Newest newbie?

Most embarrassing Grandad? (she'd better not be pregnant)

Gladys is only turning up for one reason.

Barley - The camps site I mentioned today was www.swissfarmcamping.co.uk they have pitches for tents/campers and also statics for hire. I've contacted them to see if they will hire them for a weekend rather than Saturday to Friday.

Well after ducking out of the recce today due to the forecast I struck out on my own and was flying (a weeks holiday appears to have done my cycling legs the world of good)...for about 30 mins. Then I punctured. Then I realised my pump was on the TT bike. Then I realised I had no phone reception. Then I walked miles in my beautiful carbon soled tri shoes. Then I thought f**k it I'm gonna cycle the rest of the way back on a flat tyre. Thankfully, my rim and tyre appear intact! There is a god after all. 

Gonna do the club bike sesh tomorrow morning for something different. Need a solid week this week as my 'build' training is not quite where I would've liked. On the plus side my shoulder appears to be better.

Keep trucking brothers.

PPPPPP

next time, you'll think eh?

Too many bikes, me thinks.

Seriously, I have a suggestion and query for you all. If you got totally swatted on your bike and were a mess in the gutter, how would a Good Samaritan know who to contact to say that you weren't going to be back for tea? (or worse)
Your thoughts.
Maybe it's  a separate thread, but we'll start it here, and personal.

23/06/2013 at 06:01

I have a little bit of paper in my back pocket that says who to contact in emergency. I always carry this. Everyone should do this! 

23/06/2013 at 09:12

I always have my phone with. an ICE contact. I agree it's a good point to raise and I don't take it out on a run so might do the bit of paper.

So... That's another week gone, another week closer too Henley! So training has been reasonable this week, since last Sunday I have done no running on the advice of cat and others, only managed 5k of swimming due too weird work schedule, as 2x 2.5k sessions, and over 400 miles of cycling... Went a bit nuts as I have a new bike! Back too running this week.... Current plan for Henley at the moment, survive the swim, hopefully same as last year or better 1:20 try and absolutely go mad on the bike and come in sub 5:30 and try and get a 3:30-40 marathon which is doable even in my state at the moment.... Hope everyone else is feeling ok and training is going well...
