I might have to take the fifth for the moment, based on last weekends cycle ride I'm way off what might be considered an endurance athlete, but pirate spirit and all that...

It was the name of the event which had slipped my mind, but the date leads me to suspect it's:

'Lo wing,

I might have to carve out a small partition to sing the greatest Les Miz songs.  Can I get some clarification from her Meldyness as to the potential jaunt down the GUCR for next years birthday celebrations?  

Marathon Training Plan : P&D or Runner's World?

Posted: 25/10/2016 at 08:26

+1 for P+D, my marathon PB was run off the back of their baby (up to 55 mpw) plan, although I did swap some of the recovery runs out for either cycling or swimming.  If you've never run intervals before have a bit of a google, I don't think I managed to hit a perfect set at all during the program.

London Marathon ballot place/training issue.

There's more opportunity to run in a ski resort than you might first think.  If there are any cross country routes then these will normally be groomed, most resorts have foot paths of some shape or form.  Yes, you'll get a bit puffed due to the altitude, but good training never the less.

Running Water Bottle

Posted: 29/09/2016 at 16:52

Tried the donut bottles and didn't really get on with them, a faff to hold and the drink gets warm.  I typically use either 500 ml or 750ml bottles with a sports cap and keep the bottle in some sort of waist pack.  Will only use these if I'm out for longer than an hour or so.  Sports caps can be stiff to open and close and are a pig to clean properly (I tend to soak mine in a Milton solution every few months as it also gets rid of the smell if I've been carrying flavoured drinks).  I do have one bottle with a top like this one:

Top swimming Schmunks.

I missed most of the IM Spanish stuff as I was otherwise engaged at Hever Castle triathon- woots to Meldy and Trogs.
