Dropping in and haven't read back - sorry. But wanted to say I completed my first sprint tri today and bloody loved it. I was so nervous beforehand i actually burst into tears while queuing to get into the pool! Once in I found it fine but probably should have been braver when predicting my swim time as I was held up a lot - and ended up doing 24 lengths instead! Transitions were straight forward and I loved the bike. Run was off road of 1.5m up then 1.5m down. Finished 9 minutes faster than predicted even with the swim problems. Now I really want to do open water.

Haha! I once approached someone on the Town Moor in Newcastle and asked if he was Poacher, Birch. Turned out he was not...!

Going to enjoy the race reports one the laptop in a bit.

Have a great VLM all. I'll be cheering and see you in Chandos afterwards. Gutted Ant won't be there.

I'm almost there! I'll compile a list of numbers before Sunday so know who and when to expect you at 22 miles. Who's at Chandos afterwards?

Mega excited!!

Love London marathon whichever side of the railings I'm on.

OO - hope you get sorted??

MsE - yes do manual lap. If you miss a mile market just press it as soon as you realise. I've often ended up with a couple of blocks of 2 miles. You can keep an eye on the time to check your pacing.

SJ - lol re Paula!
