Blinking heck Scuba!! Take care of yourself!!

And now for some positive news, the eczema on my right eyelid has cleared up, so back to swimming for me! Well as close to swimming as I get! And for the record, who knew you could get eczema there anyway!!

i saw the coverage of the year when it was sheet ice. Those guys are proper hard.

I think they have more years with sheet ice than without!!

For years I've been watching the coverage of the Strathpuffer 24 hour race on the Adventure Show. It's on BBC 2 Scotland as I'm typing! If you can't watch it now you should be able to watch it on iPlayer!

Imagine racing mountainbikes for 24 hours in the north of Scotland in January! Just make sure you have decent lights! 

Now I've done a fair bit of 24 hour racing (sailing, mountainbiking & running/ shuffling) and I love it, but I'm not stupid enough to do it in the solo category. This is an event that is definitely on my 'to do' list. So, a daft notion has hit me, anyone fancy entering a Pirate team next year?

Supposedly only a USA Tri license is aceptable in the USA!! Hence I've had to fork out $12 for a day license for Tahoe 70.3!!

Things started off quite well before Christmas! However what with lunches, funerals, high winds, closed swimming pools, icy roads, land slides & floods for the 2 weeks I was up home, I only managed a couple of of runs!! I didn't get near the bike!! 

Came back down south on Saturday, managed a turbo session on Sunday morning. Then lurgy hit on Sunday evening!!  I'm currently bombaring it with as much spicy food as I can stand to try & flush out my sinuses!! I'm still managing to do some core work though, between each blow of the nose!!

I used to just use the disabled toilet. I had enough space & privacy that I could get fairly well stripped off and washed with a sinkful of water and avoid soaking the place!

I couldn't do this in my current office as I have a fairly militant colleague with no legs who kicks up no end of fuss as soon as anything/one gets in his way!! But fortunately there is a shower & lockers for keeping kit in!
