BIW, that must have been galling, being beaten by a 70+ lady! There can't be many in her age group doing tris.
I don't do FB or Twitter or anything similar, but do follow and contribute to several of the Fetch threads. And have met several "fetchies" in the flesh.
TE - basically my Garmin is set to measure in miles, and I keep it that way because I like to know minute-miling times; but my PT son seems keen to work in kms, so I have also set it to record splits every 0.62 of a mile.
Glad you're back with us, Red; and sorry to hear about the hayfever. The pollen count was very high last week; I was sneezing and snuffling and sore-throaty for several days though I haven't suffered from proper hayfever for several years. Let us know if you manage to make contact with JJ.
Did a little "easy run" today, lateish in the day to avoid the heat. Astonished at TE deliberately not taking water for a run going on for more than an hour, on a hot day, on hills and sandy paths.
I don't think I've ever cooked for 11. Nor run a 3km race. And most certainly have not run with one arm in a cast, and would find that quite daunting!
Usually I swim on a Monday, but today had a lingering lunch with friends and missed the Over 60s "slot" from 3.00 till 4.00, so went for an "easy" run instead. It has turned much warmer here today and is forecast to continue.
Ray L - good news from the cardiologist. Have you already got a target race in mind?
TE - another of those wonderful WAVAs. If your club is doing particularly well in the veteran categories it must be partly down to you.
Wondering how BIW got on.
10 mile (or more precisely, 16km) run done. Took myself to Elan Valley for it, much prettier and pleasanter than running 16km around town. Did about 2/3 of it along a cycle track which has plenty of shade cast by trees on both sides.
TS - you must have been travelling first class for that?
Lovely to see all those familiar faces again.
WelshPoppy - bed at 7.00 and up at 4.00? -That IS dedication!
10 miles run at Elan Valley this afternoon. Funny old weather. Mostly I was too hot and glad of the shade under the trees, but occasionally the sun went in, the wind got up and I was briefly almost cold.
