MrsD - I have PMd you my phone number so we can find each other on Sunday - hope you are still going up to support. 

Cake - be great if you bring supercaz along I would love to meet her!

Spent 90 mins in the gym - 30 mins on the spin bike and 60 doing weights etc, think I might be sore tomorrow!

Have pm'd back!

right, I am a very bad girl, I keep putting the road wheel back on my back then not bloody going out on it! This morning I woke up and decided I am going to parkrun before my swim session, so no time for the bike this morning. Hopefully I will have time this afternoon, but that is unsure.

Anyway, next two weeks are going to be bike focused as I have a tri in 3 weeks so need to sort myself out! I will write myself out a plan and stick to it! I have got too used to staying in bed for a bit longer, back to early mornings, really I should have had time to bike and parkrun - might have made the swim a bit hard though!

I've already been out on my bike [looks smug].  A gentle, although hilly 40 minutes and I bottled it on the corners again!

and if anyone wants to see our horse/ponies this link will take you to the bothy we rent out and there are some pictures of some of the animals and on the location page an idilic picture of our driveway in winter....

Good luck to those racing this weekend!

Well tomorrow will be the first anniversary of my triathlon debut so off to the same race to see if I've improved at all over the last 12 months! Things have not been going well on the speed front since outlaw so I'm hoping for an end of year morale boost.

Hi, back from my hols and having a start of a cold.. Did a 'track' session whilst on holiday, bit of high jump, 3x 100m and 2x 400m. Not made for speed. Also attended a water fight and some swimming and walking.

Have read back, lots going on. I have decided I wan to do a HIM next year but bit late to the game so won't be Outlaw..would like something ealier than wild Boar. Have to be so organised to get to the bigger races don't you?

Good luck for everyone for Boar tomorrow!

41.5 miles cycled this morning. One emergency stop on the way back at Betchworth Post Office and village store for a Mars bar. Average speed 12.5mph.
This makes up for not being able to do the sportive tomorrow, I would have dropped down to the 40km rather than the 100k originally intended so my distance today is good preparation for 110km on 22nd Sept. 

Good luck to all the racers tomorrow.

31/08/2013 at 13:52

Speedy Gonzalez there Steady good work!

Mikasa - the Vitruvian is a day sooner than the boar and you get good kit! Am thinking about doing it next year.  Or the Belvoir castle middle distance tri I have heard good things about.  

31/08/2013 at 15:52

Good luck to those racing tomorrow.

25 mile cycle today, another longer ride planned for tomorrow.  Each time I go out my average speed increases, up to 22.5 kph hoping this trend will continue.


31/08/2013 at 16:02

well done on all the biking everyone

well did parkrun and swimming, struggled a bit because everything was aching after yesterday's gym session. 

mikasa - there are loads of middle distance races that don't sell out. I have heard good things about the Belvoir castle ones, and the vit. 

better check out google maps and find out how to find Market Bosworth!

31/08/2013 at 17:14

Oo Rocco, if you ache now wait till tomorrow! OW is wicked, you'll love it!

Maths - we have to get to Bosworth and find each other! What could possibly go wrong 

Ark at Steady giving it large! Top banana stuff. You should beast the 110! Eco too feeding my guilt for not being out on bike.   BUT, shiny new bits on bike thanks to lovely man. Have to test drive now! 

Ali - hope you smash it! 

Hows the running coming Mr Cat?

See you tomorrow Buttercup. Hope you're eating and drinking well.... That goes for you too JP and Red Dog and Mr Cake. Woop woop - Go Pirates!

So, wee bike done... like a new bike if honest. Very strange loud vibrating sound occasionally though. Not when hitting rough road. Wondering if chain hitting front derailleur. will make some adjustments and give it another whirl. 

Good luck to all racing this weekend

Hmm wine is not dulling the pain in knee made worse by shuffling wardrobe between rooms and mowing lawn. It seems that normal attitude of "ignore it and it will go away" isn't working but on the plus side now have a fab new head torch.

Wow you lot have been busy!

Running's ok Mrs D. Parkran this morning whilst the family marshalled. Stomach told me effort was good but yesterday's hard bike let the legs down! Good to be back at it though!

Funny noises on the bike can be a bugger to track down!
