my powers are weak... i swam 1200 last night after my ride, then i just ran 22 in three hours (so a bit off 3.30 pace) but powered only by 2 chup a chups (halloween flavour - found them in the cupboard), a tangerine and a small carton of pineapple juice (and a litre of water)

if i can make it up the stairs i'll go and die in a minute

and then i'll phone about the new bike tomorrow woo hoo

i had the foresight to take my mobile, and phone ahead for a thai when i was 25 minutes from home, so i got to scoff it within the all important 30 minute glycogen window... but i still feel like a ghost

boinging up the thread is very good training for boinging up the hills.

I should know.

Well count me in for anything you find, I don't mind roughing it, and am happier in the kind of hotel that doesn't get upset when you ride your bike up and down the corridoor testing the gears.

Andy - you're nuts ! Can we expect Chup a Chup feeding stations to spring up for marathons ?

And anyone any idea of how many calories a steady 50 mile bike ride should burn ?
My pal seems to think that he needs brekky, and then stop at the cyclists cafe twice for more food. His pulsemeter told him it was 2500 calories he'd burnt, but as he didn't hit the front once, I find this hard to believe.

(must tell him about chup a chups though)

It probably said 25.00 calories burnt

chup a chups are strangely satisfying in a kojac sort of way.. you can lternate between holding it, sucking it and storing it in your cheek hamster-stylee

then one day you'll be able to fit it into the chupa-sized hole in your molars...

you cant get tooth decay when you are running, the normal rules of nature go out of the window
12/01/2004 at 12:52
hmmm.. presumably powergel isn't that good for your choppers either
12/01/2004 at 13:09
Nor for your teeth

anyway, Andy - you shouldn't run with a lolly in your mouth. What if you fell over?
It would shoot straight out the back of your throat, that's what!

Ta-daaah !!

Which frame is it, and what do we want it for ?

Are we doing Tris on it ? And if so what distance. And are we training on it too ?
