The Richard Bideau story is pretty amazing - even more so than Marigold's in many ways!

Ric - the scariest thing about that video is just how close and how fast the general traffic is moving! One of the things that always puts me off riding a TT is the fact they are on often on dual carriageways that are open,,,,if I did though, and had trained very hard, I'd be VERY happy with anywhere near 60 mins for 25M!

The big improvement for TT is not really the reduction in the weight of the bikes, but mostly the aerodynamics as well as marginal gains from clipless pedals, better tyres etc.  Weight is only a major factor when it comes to climbing hills!

Breaking 24 mins for 10M seems to be seen as a good level for a club cyclist, so 61:46 for 25M is still pretty decent even on an aero TT bike!

Matt - you hadn't exactly tapered for this one . Pretty damn respectable time considering. Yes the long run was all off-road.

Ric - there was me thinking I'd done well to get a 10M MTB ride in this evening! Not far, but a good work out with lots of hills and  a bit of technical stuff. Getting back into riding off-road a bit having lost my mojo for several years following an accident. I did get stung by a wasp though!

Good ride that Pete as well. You are right about mixing it up too.

Well done on the 200 Pete. Yep, sometime no accounting for form - all a bit weird!

Where is everyone then?????

15M LSR for me today. Same route as the past couple of weeks, but a bit quicker. Still bloody slow though! Just don't seem to have any freshness in my legs of late and not sure why, as it's not like I'm hammering the miles or anything.

Cheers chaps.

Yeah, but at least it is NEXT week Matt! I've got to wait 2 more weeks for mine! Good luck with the weather!

Another fairly turgid 7.7M xc today, but still nice to get out.

 good work Simon!!

Rather hectic week this week trying to juggle work with son, and consequently us, still not sleeping (though he is on the mend we think).

Have managed to drag myself out for a few runs despite this - 8+6 yesterday and 5 progression Monday - but lack of sleep is probably hindering recovery I think and legs are feeling shot as well as being generally tired. Oh well, it'll pass I guess, and then I'm off to the Alps in two weeks for some serious hill work

Amazing stuff Matt - you are made from stronger stuff than the rest of us, that's for sure!

Don't worry Ric - I'm happy with fame by association, so will make sure Dean's status is widespread

I'm not sure whether those are good or bad Simon - long time since I've done any field events, but I'd like to have go at the javelin again.

15M xc LSR this morning - wet, wet, wet and slow, slow, slow! Metatarsal behaved, but adductor didn't. Thought I'd seen the last of that one...

The before and middle don't matter jack Dean, only the after  - National Champion! Good to see the officials doing the right thing. Total respect - much deserved!

Thanks chaps. He does seem quite a bit brighter this evening, so hopefully on the turn.

9M on the road for a change tonight. All ok, and even the rain held off for the first 6, but metatarsalgia in the left foot has flared up a bit after. Icing tonight and rest tomorrow then see what Sunday brings.

Good luck tomorrow Dean - I as reminded of your finish the other day watching Mo's tonight!
