MC - I'm agree with the others, just ignore that guy.

WELL DONE TO MC and PETE sounds like some good racing despite the difficulties.

Anyone know how Cat got on?

Steady - hope your knee heals quick

Blimey I'm almost speechless..

Anyway -what I thought when I first read this: Mathschick - awesome time. I'm a bit nervous that when your knee is better you'll be someone else chasing me down

Good luck training!

Chilli, I had a quick look at Cat's blog and he had only written up to this morning, so no race result.

MC, I can confirm that DB is nice, he is great at encouraging you to cycle up hills.

My niggle knee is definitely to do with the other muscles in the leg and hip, rather than a new injury, hopefully a rest tomorrow and it will be fine.

mathschick wrote (see)

have you started looking for another one now? with a road bike you will smash that time, once I moved from my old hybrid to a road bike I noticed a massive difference

lol...the first thing I did when I got back was look at the next race in the series...but I need to get my swimming sorted.  And get a better bike.  And wait for my legs, knees and feet to stop hurting!

thanks to everyone for all your encouragement and advice.

Well done Pete fantastic racing, have you got slicks on your MTB? Well worth doing in the intermin period before purchasing a new road bike.

Strength+Conditioning last night, hoping to up the weight this week but we shall see. Taking the MTB out to do hill reps this evening as I've got an adventure race over the may bank holiday.

Happy Monday everyone

I texted Cat this morning...he' seems happy with his result - but I'll leave it to him to tell you all about it! Don't want to steal his moment of glory (or otherwise?!?!?)

Well done Maths and Pete, great results. First race of the season done and dusted for you two.

Everyone keeps mentioned CATs blog if he doesn't mind could someone please post a link?

Get in there Cat... Smashed it! Can't wait for report! 
Congrats on your cherry popping Pete! Fantastic times, well done. Shame about your small detour! Bring on the next one! 
Steady, hope your knee sorts itself out.

We'll, I managed a 30min run last night and 19.5mile bike this morning... Beast of a headwind. Small amount of panic now welling.

Cat! WhooHooo! Go, go Team GB. Well done. Look forward to your race report.

Ouch! MrsD I hope you are okay.

Bike ride today. Not sure how far cos my bike computer is broken and I can't be bothered to figure it out any other way. About 13-15 miles. Shall run tomorrow, rest on Wed and then be ready for the Cambridge on Thursday.

22/04/2013 at 18:32

cat - brilliant, well done

MrsD, ouch. But what are you wibbling about?

just a masters swim for me today

22/04/2013 at 19:45

The bike is fine thanks Jamie... Would have been more of a rant otherwise! Was the first thing I checked though. Jamie have you come from a MTB background?
Good biking Chili. What's occurring at Cambridge lady?
Maths - the OW swim Sun was bad! Has really worried me. I know I'm gutsy and will plough through the bike and run. Just don't want the swim to throw me. Know it's my fault have not put the swimming in. What is Masters swim?

Yep I'm originally a mountain biker, started off with XC done a lot of enduros a couple of 6 hours, 12 hour and a 24 hour races as well as a few point to point races, then took up downhill for a few years with my one claim too fame as racing one race as elite male, came like 30th out of 50 in elite but was happy with just qualifying! Here is a short video of one of the tracks I use too ride a lot..... sadly been torn down now and I sold that bike got a new one and snapped the swing arm on it... Now sits in my garage

Yeah saw your name on you tube hence the ask. I have this feeling you're gonna beast this triathlon malarky also. What are your general aims within tri?
