Afternoon all,

I'll resist the Finbar Saunders opening.

Will stretching sort your calf Seren or is it need something more serious.

Lets see if I can embed a bee vision flower

I'll need to tinker with the team balance a bit more before I'm happy.  Mr Velogames certainly seems to think Mr Froome's in with a strong chance. 

Calf guards

There was one scientific study which said they're a little useful for recovery if they're correctly fitted and have the correct compression gradient.  

I've worn them in the past to prevent cramp (broadly speaking works OK) but I've not systematically done a with/without study.

They are, however, very good at preventing elephant attacks.

Tom Cruise,

Is it time for another pirate trip to the Southwater relays?

Subject to me getting my socks in order I could be talked into this, although there's an outside chance I might be officiating too (Woking).

Shas- it's a 'proper' relay so you do a complete tri and then tag the next teammate who does a whole triathlon etc.  The 'race' for the lanterne rouge is particularly fierce.

it's still dead humid down South but we seem to have finished with the silly rain.  

Hope you've now unpacked and got the washing on Seren.

Hope the trapped nerve is resolving itself Mrs F. 

Very tempted to go and hide under the dining room table until everything calms down a bit.  Might invest in a hard hat.

Remembered to check the porch last night and there was my parcel waiting for me- thanks Schmunks.

Thanks for the explanation Schmunks.

Stickleback- minimum ages for  the swims (if it follows last year) are 11 for the 1500m, 13 for the 2500 and 15 for the 5000.

Schmunks- is the list above now closed?  So no additional names?
