Hey Jevans! So good to have you back with us . You'll soon get your mileage back up.

Mikasa sounds a great bike ride and that is pretty good speed in my books.

MC & Buttercup signing up for the Outlaw already? Mmmm, wonder if I can find a place in a team again. It was a fabulous weekend last year.

Well, my times from yesterday were very slow (as usual). Swim 12:17 for 500m Run 29:53 for 5.5k. But I was 7th out of 16 ladies And gives me something to beat next month. I'm a bit nervous of the swim so I tend to hold back so I don't bump anyone, but maybe I just need to plow through it.

 JEvans Ay up mate how you doing? If it's any help I think I might have a bigger waist line than you at the moment.

You know the drill mate pick a daft race to do and share stupid jokes with the rest of use for motivation.

Chilli well done kiddo.

chili - well done I bet if you wander over to the outlaw 2014 thread and offer yourself for a team there will be others that would want to team up with you

Mrs D and MC how does 'The Dread Pirates' grab you?

sounds good to me buttercup

I am struggling to keep up with all the outlaw reports, I keep reading and reading then when I think I am getting near to the end of the thread I realise there have been loads more posts while I have been reading. Loving all the reports though - back to reading them!

What about 'The Eternal Optimists'? 

10/07/2013 at 20:11

I'm slow it took me a while to get past who's Hugh Jass when he's at home I'm just pretty and like shiney things!

Sounds great fun

Today's training was a bike ride. Had planned to do it this evening after making dinner. But my No.3 girl asked if she could come too. Lovely 2 hours slowly peddingly in the sunshine with my daughter.

I also seem to spending a lot of time reading Outlaw reports instead of working!

Aw Chili, so lovely that you and th girls are enjoying so much. Makes me smile every time. Top pic and I can guarantee someone would snap you up for Outlaw again!

so, we going with Hugh Jass's Ladies or what 

went out to South Cerney and dipped a toe in with Scmunks on Tues. Crazy warm water! So many people there got batted a couple of times. 

Pootle out last night for 45mins. A lot of sweating involved. But really enjoyed. Have no idea if gonna make it round the Olympic in 3 weeks.

Razor - are you out there?

11/07/2013 at 11:23

MrsD - which oly are you doing?

I managed to get myself out of bed for a run with hill reps. Must have worked hard because the 2 miles home from the hill involved a lot of walking.

Got lods of work to do but finding avoidance tactics - I am writing tests for next year and it is boring, trying to keep away from the outlaw thread and the race reports while I am at school though or I will get nothing home!

If I was razor I would be taking a well earned brake and just be sitting in the back garden in a paddleing pool drinking single malt. Afraid I'm sure that's not what he's doing as spoke to him monday and he has a big job on this week fitting kitchen's in a block of flat's poor lad must be knackered.

I wouldn't blame him either Cake. Just realised did I miss out on the Malt?
