Afternoon all,

I did jury service many moons ago, I also found it a fascinating process.  A lot of the judges time is spent ensuring that the jury understand what the heck is going on.  If I recall I heard an ABH and an arson.  There can be an awful lot of hanging around in the iniital/selection stage.  I finished the newspaper, the book I was reading and ended up reading my (old paper) car insurance.

Hacking cough has arrived in time for the weekend.  Might pootle the parkrun tomorrow and try to work out whether a long bike in the pouring rain is sensible for Sunday (answers on a postcard to...).

How are my roomies doing ? Fe Fe, Bob and 9sqrun - are you all really flying ?

I've not swum since Challenge Henley in 2013 - and anyone will tell you that hardly counted as swimming....

Strangely enough I brought a spare shirt into work today so I can cycle in tomorrow.  I tried this last week and had to cut short the ride home as I was a bit broken.  First century ride pencilled in for this weekend (there's a local sportif and I'm out of excuses).  I even ran at faster than marathon pace at the weekend (it was mostly downhill).  I am, however, nowhere near racing weight and have been very proficient in swim session swerving.

Top dolphining Schmunks.

TMW- I had to google Clifton Sausage and I'm now hungry.  I had thought you were a non-meat eater.

I have just printed out the BTA knowledge tester- 14 pages to complete (and pass) before I'm allowed to start shadowing.  Plus the rulebook and course materials to read through.  Rule 19.2 is the referees friend.

'Ow do all,

I actually managed to run at faster than marathon pace at the weekend, in my defense it was only because it was downhill.  I briefly met one of Seren's open water swimming friends and apparently only just missed Seren herself.

Just hadt a new supply sent through- found it helpful last time I used it (but that was some time back).  Yvonne van Vlerken was suggesting it takes a couple of weeks to kick in.

Well remembered Dave- yes, we joined at about 12 o'clock (geographically) on the first lap, I managed Bitchnor on the first attempt and then stopped to admire the view second time round.

Morning all,

Speedy running Mr Spartan.

I'm going from one extreme to t'other Mouse- BTA referee course on Saturday (a certain goateed Welshman talked me into it) and I'm doing the Kymin Dash on Sunday so I'll wave in your direction as I drive past on Saturday evening.

Seren, my abiding memory of the big woody course was if I wasn't going up I was coming down.  I also seem to remember doing two laps which is odd as I only did the little woody.

Lower back problems

why do you say that running is causing your back pain?  What was it that you were doing at the gym?  

I'm doubtful you're going to get an accurate web diagnosis (unless Mr Six Physio turns up), so I think you'll probably be better off trying to find a local physiotherapist to try and find out what's causing the pain.

Morning team,

sorry to hear of your poorly relative Mrs F.

Top race entering there Dave, I must get round to entering the local aquathlon series as that's due to kick off at the start of next month.

Finally got round to getting some passwords reset, so I have some ebay shinies on the way which should mean I can see when I take the bike out of an evening.  Other than that not a terribly productive weekend.
