All this no pants talk

Gutted about the bike Cat hope it's nothing to serious.

No gym this morning as I wanted to be fresh for the OW swim and run session this evening. Feel a little guilty after having a 12oz burger for dinner last night. Food is fuel after all

I'm fine! Very low speed stick in rear mech incident. Rear mech caught up in wheel and near seatstays. Steel frame so integrated mech hangar bent in all directions and bolt hole thread stripped.

Wow, just caught up with the weekends going on, lots of great racing going on and a lack of underwear it seems, I got back from London last night after the London-Surrey 100, it was a great weekend, felt like a holliday, I've come back to work today feeling like I've been away for ages (need to get out more).

The training started today for The Wild Boar, couple of weeks training should be plenty shouldn't it?

 2 weeks should be fine right?

If not I'm sure we can all fight for the right to come last?

 But I want to be a lady?

Looks like a good event, decent website. Not too far from me (Oxfordshire). However I've not done that sort of distance yet and I don't have the muscle memory of some of the more season athletes on here

Kritter you probably don't want to no given some of the tomfoolery but if you feel like it and don't want to do the distance I'm sure they are on the look out for marshall's and also if you wanted to see how much the distance isn't that scary if you come down you can watch us all eat ice cream and also put some names to faces.

It's a very newbie friendly race if you want a good time I would wait until you have trained up and stuff for the distance but if you wanted to just get round and experance it it's a good one to play at. The step up from Olly to half isn't that great, painful but not unacheiveable.

sorry cake no experience about being a lady, never acheived that level of sophistication, just about graduated to level of bird

06/08/2013 at 19:08

Ok, there seems to be talk of 'training' - calm yourselves immediately! Emsi, I also am no lady! 

Still hoping to come down to Wild Boar. Attempting to persuade OH. The ice cream has always been winning me round

Cake I heard you had big girl undies - that makes you a big girl in my eyes

Kritter come and support on the day - you would be most welcome - my hubby is bringing his coffee and probably the guardian and supporting his beloved wife!

Ran for 80 mins tonight worked hard for it tho' was very warm outside - I felt like I was  running comfortable til about 7k then it got v warm and all the clouds disappeared Garmin tells me I was running the same pace as last week but hr was higher I have improved from June  

And who says compression gear isn't sexy big girl underwear??? (Apart from my hubby!!)
