Morning all,

Mouse- it's not the size of the screw it's what you do with it that matters.  Are you on a lightening raid to the city?  I'm still slightly flaking, but almost restored to normal skin tone.

Run home was a game of two halves Limper.  Office to station lovely and sunny and then sleet, rain and bitterly cold wind from other station to home.  Happily I got home before rain penetrated the rucksack containing the library book.  

I've heard the term thundersnow being bandied about Mrs F, but I don't know if it's an accurate description of what's happening.

Dead impressed that Meldy has her own personal staircase at work.

Will you be diving for rubber bricks next week Dave?

We got a new (comedy) exercise at Pilates last night while balanced on a foam roller.  Should have involved curling up chest and head while knee folding, but ended up mostly being different ways to fall off said roller.

Diet help!

It's a bit of an expensive way of doing it, but the slimfast/Complan shakes (or buy the powder and make it up) could help if you're going to be missing meals because you're running.

Morning all,

I've packed long sleeves for tonight's trot home and there's a suspicious wet weather blob over my route at about going home time according to the BBC.

Hope the washing machine doesn't interfere too much with the revision Seren.

Brilliant news Mrs F.

Good result in the marathon.  Now get on your bike.  You'll need to sort out what works for you fueling wise as if you get this bit wrong it can ruin your day.

When you start the run leg of Outlaw do not attempt to run it at 4hr marathon pace. The closest I've ever got to my marathon PB in an IM is 30 minutes slower.

Morning team,

sorry to hear your day didn't go as planned Meldy, but big tick for the scones and beer.  Glad you enjoyed your day Limper.  I watched bits of the marathon on telly, but I'd only just waved off some weekend visitors, so was in the process of stripping bedding, putting washing on and putting things back in the kitchen where they should be.

Have you managed to get your bloodwork done yet Seren, or are you still waiting for the appointment?  Have you given the washing machine a stern talking to?

Gingers crossed for Nanny F.

Dave- excellent

Gingers crossed that the tests give you some answers Seren.

I am no longer bright red but have now reached the extremely flaky stage, if I'm feeling brave I might try a wee jog tomorrow.

First time VLM spectator.... any tips?

Having been on both sides of the fence over the years:

Unless you've agreed the exact spot where you're going to be standing you are very unlikely to spot your O/H or vice versa.  

If you're trying to get to Cutty Sark after the race has started you'll be at the back of the crowd.  

Mudchute area is probably best chance to get close to the barriers.

I'd bin the idea of the Boris bike, pavements are going to be rammed.

Morning wing,

this week I shall mostly be doing an impression of a beetroot and then peeling.

Thanks for the cheers Mrs (+ Mr) F and Happychap too who was also out and about on the course.  I'll mark yesterday down as a learning experience.  Not as fit as I thought I was, but was sensible enough to give myself a talking to and revert to my usual IM walk/run strategy.  2:01 first half and 2:20 second gives an overall 4:21:03.670.  First time I've had a result going down to thousandths of a second.

Top caking Limper- any special occasion that the cake is destined for or just for the sheer craftiness of it?

Melds- how do you disappoint a cat?
