Buxton. In the High Peak District. If you don't like the weather, just wait 30 seconds. Summer happened at 13:19 this lunchtime. There was a lull in the gale, the sky turned blue and two butterflies were seen. I thinks that they had been blown into the next County by 13:20.
Brother in Law took me on his favourite run. 6.6 miles It was either going up, or UP, or trippy down, or boggy. The heart tried exploding out of my chest on the first mile. Extremely scenic, very blowy, and fantastic fun. !:02 or 9:24m/m. He said that he was fat and unfit. If that's the case, I'm a Dutchman.
er Welcome MG2, Ale: your lyrics make for an unusual choice, but I get it. Dustin: it's all your fault. Whenever you do U11 training, the weather takes a funny turn.
Sounds like a fun weekend Chicksta. Nice confidence booster run WP RFJ good luck and anyone else who is probably out there right now.
Accidentally got up at 0630, so went off to lake 32 for a swim. Almost got caught out as they were starting to put out the road closures for the annual cheese rolling competition. Now there's a race I have no intention of entering. Anyway, got 2.5km swum, and saw loads of fish. Only just getting mildly hypothermic by the end of the hour, so that's OK.
Might get to do a bit more stuff later. We'll see.
Calf guards are officially banned in pool swims. Ref FB post. At our club triathlon today, an athlete was asked to remove his calf compression guards 3 times. He ignored the requests and got a DQ. The UK Triathlon Referee upheld the decision. Athlete was pee'd off.
Reason: potential to act as additional flotation device due to trapped air, thus giving unfair advantage.
If you wish, you are allowed to use them in OW swimming, as the limit is 5mm of wetsuit material. I've got a 5mm wettie. It's for Scuba, certainly far too thick for swimbling. The swim wettie is 2 to 3mm. You could use bubble wrap inside the wettie and still be OK.
