Max's mum - Its true.... I'm petrified. I did one sprint tri in a lake and was overtaken by children! Never underestimate how fast you can go with breast stroke!

He is a pleasure to run with (if a little bugger sometimes). He is originally from the czech republic but we live in Belgium and he comes over to the UK for visits so he tends to have the busiest pet passport they've ever seen!

Tinks - give yourself time to recover and adjust. Some meds take 3-6 months for the full effects to take effect. So the one thing you need to give yourself is more time.

Benign - Thanks. Our eyes are different too.

Benign - I know... he's got a lovely temperament. He's with me at work for two weeks and the people here keep commenting about how relaxed he is.... saying that - he's taken a shine to one of the developers and wont leave his office!

You've got a husky, Emmy, they're quite something, very attractive dogs/hounds/wolves? There's a pair in my village, the owner has a proper harness he wears to take them for a walk, not quite sure who's walking who most of the time!

Yes - he's adorable! This was him after his first marathon.

Am I the only person that hated Amsterdam?? 

I hated it too. Its my sister's birthday marathon so we always seem to do it. The only reason I dont like it is because of the canal section and the fact you dont really see any of the nice bits of Amsterdam. Coming on the inward stretch the canal is quite narrow... saying that - it looks like i'll be back for a third year in a row... :/

Morning all,

Wow, good for you hatter.

That wasn't meant as sarcasm by the way, I cant swim well either but feel i should take advantage of being near the sea.
Would you recommend improving in a swimming pool first before attempting open water?

I find them completely different beasts. I can swim "ok" in a pool but get scared of open water (it's the fish... the fish i tell you).

I love tri - but cant swim fast for toffee. I've done a few sprints and love them as the distances are so short but I wish that I could do a 400m swim and then 50k bike and a marathon afterwards

I'm going to invest in a crab suit, and run sideways.

PLEASE do and take pictures!

A friend of mine Rik broke a world record in London for the fastest marathon dressed a pirate. He already owns the british record for running the most number of marathons in a year (136 i think).

SO... i'm now the laughing humilation of my office. I'm currently in a two week stint of being onsite at our vendor. EVERY run and walk i've done i've got hopelessly lost. Yesterday I was given a map, today a tag: if lost please return to....

But some good news. Went to a vet here with Boyska to get him checked out for his trip to the UK and was very happy with his check up.

- Perfect muscle condition, strong heart and lungs, great coat and teeth and a lovely disposition. His heartbeat is a little slow but he said that this was due to his "topconditie"

He said that normally he sees huskies who are overweight or have no muscle definition at all. When I mentioned at the beginning that he runs with me every day and gets a long walk in the evening he smiled as if to say: Ok, yes dear.... then after checking him out - said: crickey - you werent lying. Very happy furmama this morning!

Who else gets up at stupid O clock to run ??

Lee - You've just come out of a hard few weeks mentally. Give yourself a break - take it easy and do whatever you need to (run/cycle etc). I agree - it does sound like you''re on the cusp of something... i hope its just post marathon hysteria

If you need anything or need support - you know where I am

Stewart/Cleanshoes/ruffles - the same goes for you all.

Meldy - it's been a pleasure. Same again next year?

Fantastic shot! Looks like a great place to run. I think poor Becky looks a little done in - how big was that hill?!
