At least the route is nice and flat 

Ever tried cycling in a wetsuit & snorkel?  I'd give it some serious thought.

yes - there's only 2000m of climbs!!

Oohh cycling in a wetsuit - imagine the chaffing!!

Plenty of lard here in The Holy Land to stop the chaffing.

2550m of climbing, it'll be the 550m that will f*ck you up

So when's your tri Raf? Is it still on after you've finished swimming 80miles in Scotland - you'd better pack your rubber duck!

I've puimped my tyres up really really really high - so hopefully the bike will float!! Supersprint is next Sat, followed by Thames swim the next morning!

Hows the calf - ready for Edinburgh?

You're busy! Good on you.  Do you want some antibiotics before you get in the Thames?

Oh I'm sure I've drunk worse than good ole Thames water

Calf oki dki, little tight but managed a run off the bike yesterday, and doesn't impact during swimming, seeing physio again on Monday but training anyway, just avoiding long run sessions

I see you've done the Mighty Deerstalker, gastank.  How stinky was your kit afterwards? I did it last year, and came to the conclusion that it maybe wasn't the best choice for someone who's scared of the dark and heights.

That's the first time I have ever seen that asked, "How stinky was your kit afterwards?" Memories of Kim Cattral in the boys changing room in Porkys.... Oooooooowwwwwwwwwwwwwww!!!
