I think the lake in Roundhay is only about 4 ft deep just stand up

I am pleased to be able to report I have actually done some training this week!

3 runs so far 9,5,5 , did 100 lengths in the pool yesterday, biked 20 mile commute and got a (very ) hilly 80 planned for Sat on the bike, so its starting to come together I think.

Plan is to get a couple more 80's and a couple of 100's on the bike over next two months, with commute at least twice a week of 20m. Run will up long run every other week up to 18 possibly 2-3 weeks out. Swim just waiting for weather to turn a bit then will take to the lakes with one or two a week of near full distance.

Not going to be breaking any world records and will be happy with a 'comfortable' finish and under 14 would be a bonus.

Darn, I managed 70 yesterday, but I'm not sure I could use the term 'comfortable' at all.

Glad to see there is no mention of running or swimming there WW, so at least I'm on schedule with those two !!

                Oh yes - I wonder if they came this year ? 


Pics on their facebook page suggest they did.  Interesting that there are very few race numbers shown, and even one of those is folded so that only the number itself is showing.  Could be a deliberate wind-up on their part, but they do have form...

Ooh, is their Facebook page still active ? ... I couldn't find it when I last looked .. I must have been blocked ... tsk tsk .. time for a little identity swapping of my own !

. She'll be banned from London so will no doubt find her way into New York instead, or maybe she can fake her way into Boston...

I think we may know a bloke that could get her, her Boston qualifying time too ....

Isn't there a club that brings a coach full of people to London every year with the sole intention of having these people run it illegally? That club full of twunts ought to be banned forever but banning a club just because they have one or two twunts seems a bit harsh to me.

I think that was the Mysteruns of Abergele (or if not I know they definately did something similar).

There 'may' have been some pointed comments made on their Facebook page last year about same and calling the perpetrator out in no uncertain terms , and interestingly it's not there this year ... I checked
