Morning Mathschick, weather not looking to good for everyone you gonna manage to get training in? I'm out tonight for beer and curry so don't think I'll be doing to much Sunday lol might do long run today then swim later.

it isn't the weather that bothers me, it is all the other things I have to do. Well, one of them involves getting my hair done, so isn't exactly a chore...anyway, not sure I will have time, but will be runnning tomorrow which is the main thing. Will try to sneak a run or bike in at some point today

mossie bite is getting better

ok, managed to do some training! got back from the summer fair, felt like I really couldn't be bothered to do anything, so went to the gym thinking, 'there's always the weights if I can't be bothered to do anything else'. Instead ended up doing a killer brick session - 15 mins easy bike - 15 mins easy run, 10 mins harder bike, 10 mins harder run, 5 mins really hard bike, 5 mins really hard run. The last 10 mins hurt

don't know what everyone else in the gym thought I was up to

Eco - You will be fine!! Go for it!!!! You've done the hard work already Plus, you are a seal, remember?
Maths - Looks like a good session there!! Well done! It's always difficult when there are many other distractions!

Well, I've submitted my application for my MSc course. Wait and see now if they want to take a flyer on a guy with quite a bit of work experience but no decent qualifications beyond GCSE level. If I don't get in then I may have to hit the IM trail!!!

Oh, and I swam 750-800m earlier. quicker than I have done before, with less effort...pleased!

Did big swim yesterday met chilli ( very nice) cake looking good to cat5 (racing snake) horse razor and there was many many more pirates everywhere. Swim went fine lots more work to be done if I'm gonna take on Ironman

Just been on tracker and Cat 5 is flying on the swim 1.22 cake just squeezed through in 2.02 looks like it could be long day for cake, keep it going mate.
