lol TRex, I'm entered for the full brutal (I did the half last year as a trial run)....and I have supposedly said to mr panad that I'll do the double if I'm still capable when we move over to llanberis....
After my efforts at the slateman this last Sunday though I'm not entirely sure I'll survive the brutal though! It was a tough day at the office, essentially I got cold - the swim was cut to half the distance because of the water temperature - in the head wind on the bike, couldn't warm myself up, felt sick and couldn't bring myself to eat/drink and surprisingly enough ran out of energy running (walking!) up the slate paths, but looking on the bright side, I finished Some serious work to do now though before the snowdon race.
JB good to hear some good news about your FIL and your running I was telling mr panad about your village race the other day and how he had no excuse not to run it with it being so close! we took the girls to see ysgol dyffryn conwy just before Easter and it seemed a nice school, our youngest will be going into bl10 in sept (all being well she will do 3 weeks before the summer hols) and our eldest will be going into bl12..
TRex - at least we know you survived your adventures in America, looking forward to the report as always - when is the book coming out?
Chrissi - hope your niggles are sorted soon, fingers crossed for your ultra in june.
I've not been around much since the new year as life has gone a bit pear-shaped, however I think we're in the process of getting back on our feet again Hopefully this will be really kick-started in 9 wks time when we move to Betws-y-Coed as soon as Becci has finished her GCSEs. Going to be nice being a bit closer to the mountains (not that we're far away now ) Of course, got to do something about finding myself a job etc and the girls will have new school so may take a while to settle in, but looking forward to a new start
Sorry to hear about you F-I-L JB, take care!
Congratulations Brer! fantastic achievement, how you are still standing I do not know!
Just back from a gorgeous week at our cottage, got loads of work done, though really we're only just making a start at all the renovations!), caught up with friends and mr panad and I even got some running in - bit of a shock to the legs
