Breakfasting well Pirates

Buttercup, are you watching daytime tv in your jimjams while eating pot noodle yet?

yes Lumpty's up for Wild Boar but is also tempted by the Avenger, I'll put her down for both

Poor Bruce will be lycra clad and browsing wetsuits before he knows it

There seems to be a theme developing around events that conclude with feasts of treats, we must develop this

Ok, so my OH did his first supersprint 2 weeks ago. Came in the top 20... I may have to ban him!  Buttercup, get the good man going! He'll love it!

well done to all over the weekend  Top banana work! Wish could have been there to heckle.

Nice to see you Razor and OiI!

all this mention of interesting races what is the avenger? what is the one in May buttercup is thinking of? oh, don't want buttercup to think I am stalking her and entering everything she does ...

Mrs D - great to hear from you hope you are ok. well done to digger

I just started eating the lollipops I bought for the kids after a healthy salad lunch too

oii - hope you are on the mend now - which one have you entered?

best get back to work!

MC  yes 22nd June, its quite close to us and in nice grounds

Mrs D, he is way too fast, you'll have to get him a heavy bike or divers shoes

Cake, thanks for the swimathon mention, I just signed up for the 5K next year

Oii - nice to have you back! Hope your foot is all sorted now and good luck for your training for the 70.3. Which one are you doing?

MrsDigger - when I did my first tri I wanted bf to do it as well. He did no training but was fairly active at the time (two years ago now!) and was in the top quarter too. 

Avenger looks good but I don't like the prices of these events...

Plan is starting to form but not booking anything yet as don't know where I'm going to be. So 10k Santa Run on 15th Dec, John Austin half mara in New Forest on 9th March, now just have to sort out tri's for next year. Sprint, olympic and Wild Boar I think. Still need to sort out my swimming though and bike will need work as well.

Temped JP re the avenger I just noseyed at the website - hmmm 3wks after the Outlaw half and a month before Outlaw - as long as I don't wipe myself out on the OH I should be okay - will check with BH before I make any firmish type commitments.

Bwaahahahah MC lol

That race look's very useful for training next year if I do the eirman thing planning might be tempted JP depending on what happens with where we are living come next spring.

Continuing the quality healthy food vibe, fish finger, fried egg and onion sandwich for tea - get in!! 

30/09/2013 at 17:46

MrsD that sounds nice, I am making pasta though with loads of veggies

avernger looks like a beautiful location, but a 2 hour drive for me which makes it difficult, have to think about that one

30/09/2013 at 19:14

Is that the average price for HIM's, round £100?

I'm making Italian broccoli and salmon bake; it also has sundried tomatoes and anchovies in it. 

30/09/2013 at 19:26

Yeah some cheaper some dearer - the Wild Boar was 75, the Outlaw half 125, Ironman 70.3 Wimbleball is 210.  So 100 is not that bad  

I had gf sausages and salad and fresh pineapple for afters nom.

30/09/2013 at 19:46

what is a gf sausage...girl friend sausage?  Is that a euphamism?

I ran the hard 10K route today and did it in a reasonable time, although my arms hurt more than my legs. I might not run again before sundays hill race.  Perhaps just a wee one tomorrow.
