Muttley, do you still use a local version of Garmin Connect on your PC or the online version?  If Muttley Mansions is equipped with wifi then what GF said.

There is nothing big and scary on the Austria course


Based on the threats someone is throwing about, I think there are some who would dispute this point

I'm not aware of anyone on here having said that they were going to hire a car, but:


I'm currently working very hard on my 'heavy smoker hacking up a lung' impression.  It's very good, I can do the doubling over and face contortions and everything.

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.
