Hey Folks

Still alive, cycling a lot, running a bit. Came third in club Duathlon on Friday much to my surprise given the age of the field! Off to Spain for 4 weeks on Wednesday for my annual summer training camp. Otherwise not a lot.

O4S: Busy, busy and there's nothing worse than an injured runner. (ask Minni!)

Minni: You will return.

Kiwi: Good to see you running

2Old: Hope you get yourself sorted.

Barry: swimming along! 

Chick: Germany deserved to win, my youngest wants to go and live there for 5 years so he can play for Germany.

Keep Running.

Hi Folks, quick check in, seems that all are busy!

kfc: Thats some schedule

Chick: The speed will return if you want it to.

2Old: I take it that you have been in Spain.

O4S: I hope that when you break out beyond the perimeter fence the sun will shine. Try rest its good!

Ant: The dark side is strong and I think you are lost to the dark forces.

Me, potholing around, cycling a lot, first male in the club handicap race on Thursday, 11K in 50-02 with a couple hundred metres of climbing thrown in so it would appear the after burners are not completely burnt out. If the race had been 300M longer I would have won, couldn't quite catch the winner. 

Off to Spain tomorrow for work so a running week coming up.

Minni: ouch

O4S: busy and nuts as ever

Chick: the rest may just have been what you needed

2Old: you seem to be back on track

Barry: a speedy 4 miles there

40 miles on the bike then 7 miles with club tonight, mixture of roads and trail too fast for comfort

Ant: welcome to the dark side

2Old: nice tri, anymore booked?

Minni: your way to young to retire

Cooks: you have a plan!

kfc: wimp! Probably a wise choice

Barry: if its cold i take the time to put on arm warmers, gillet, and on ocassion overshoes, buff! I dont do cold.

Sixty miles on the bike today, got soaked twice, hail bouncing off helmet, it was nice most of the time but couldnt feel my feet for the last hour.

Minni: glad you have found the problem. Good luck today

 Nell: good luck

O4S: please be kind to BA, cellulitus put me in hospital for 10 days back in 2007.

Darren: cant think of a solution.

did club pyramid session on Thursday night that woke my legs up post marathon, couldnt hit my usual paces but slowly caught up all my main rivals as we went through the distances, actually felt pretty good. Blasted out 30 miles on the bike yesterday and averaged over 16MPH for the first time in a while and wasnt even on my race bike, must be getting fitter. Will run 7 - 10 later.

Darren; dont worry your to young to be a Minni clone

Cooks: i reckon the speed approach will work

Ant; hills can slow you down dramatically on a bike. I can do a 40K tri bike leg in about 63 mins on the flat, the same distance on the hills around here is nearer 90 mins.

40 miles on the bike today, will run tomorrow.
