Anaphylactic shock whilst exercising

Posted: 17/08/2016 at 12:10

Well, if you can find the trigger for my cold urticaria and angiodema, there is a cheque in the post for you! I haven't been able to find it. But an interesting piece of information nonetheless from my point of view. Cheers.

2016 PSOF Golf Umbrellas

Posted: 10/06/2016 at 00:24

I have a pair, they are great for golf. Which is a curse of getting old. I mean, who in their right mind actually gets off on golf? Shite game, gets you fit my arse, suitable for fat rich people.

But Pirate umbrellas attract wasps and bees and all other sorts of flying things with stings which really annoy your opponents and irritate the Farah Slack fitted snotty jobsworth dress code jockeys.

Buy one. Or two.

Cheers all. The Thorpe ones are just down the road from me and it is my fave lake.

Well, seeing as I am banned from the big stuff, I might try an Oly. Any recommendations in the summer (ie June, July or August), in the South-ish, preferably not Windsor and preferably not a sea swim.

Anyway, it helps hide the taste of the inch thick duck shit.

Wee in wetsuit to warm it up. But GET IN THE WATER FIRST or you will feel a bit of a tit and I would laugh at you. If you remember to let one out before getting out, all well and good, saves needing one on the bike. Otherwise, use as chemical weaponry for the one following you who keeps accidentally tapping your feet. It is really hard to keep a leg kick up when having a wee I find.

Someone else can cover weeing on a bike.....I have never done it. Some do.

Weeing on the run just gives you blisters on your feet and smelly legs.

Sighting is practice, if you know you are doing ten strokes in a straight line, sight every ten. Adjust it to suit. Do your own sighting, don't follow Mister Zigzag, he will wear you out. Sight to distance, not close up. AT least next buoy, preferably a large tree that is recognisable. At Outlaw, it was 40 minutes sighting on the sun. Even I could see that. Good luck. Report back, don't forget.

I agree that the tri set are friendlier than the running set in general. Always lots of advice available. There a re a good few older ones on here too. One is said to be even older than the pyramids....

I average one bottle every 25 miles, but I usually carry two for an Oly, the second is a smaller 500ml one, most of which goes in the first mile washing out all the duck shit in my mouth from the water. Would probably pack 5 isogels and use last one just before start of run.

I always take a few slugs of fatboy Coke in T1 after an OW swim. Some people swear by it as prevention against upset stomachs later in the day. I am one of them. Your call.

Sounds like classic Pirate material. Don't put your wetsuit on back to front, Spit in your goggles just before you get in the water and rinse them in the river. Stops them fogging up. If the water is cold, piss in your wetsuit. DO NOT shit in it. Apart from that, enjoy, smile etc.
