Alex, points allocated as laid out in the first post.  Tally up what you've earned for each session you do, and update your position on the list accordingly.  A new total starts each month, with the previous month's points in brackets.
You've got a wee bit of catching up to do, better get your arse in gear

I thought my telling off from Meldy the other day was sufficient, but it appears she's seen fit to break out the plasticine doll and the pins.
Ever had one of those days when the gods seem to be conspiring against you? Today's bike ride went like this . . .
Went to get the bike ready and the back tyre was flat as a pancake.  No worries - wheel off, tube changed, wheel replaced, good to go.  Got on the bike, the chain slipped, I lost my balance and fell over, splitting my bottle cage in half in the process. Luckily I have two bottle cages, so I picked myself up, put my bottle back on the bike and set off.  Time for my first drink . . . couldn't get the bottle out of the cage.  My new bottles are bigger than my old ones and it had somehow got jammed.  Stopped, sorted out the bottle, set off again.  All ok for the next 20 miles or so, then my Garmin started beeping to tell my the lap memory was full (dropped my bike computer a couple of weeks ago and it died, so 405 is my stand-in), and no matter which buttons I pressed it wouldn't stop.  I tried to ignore it but it really started to annoy me.  I was cycling in loops past the house, so I thought I'd stop and leave it there.  Slowed down, unclipped  my left foot, leaned to the right and fell over again.  Swore. A lot.  Set off again.  All ok until halfway up a short, steep hill my chain came off.  I didn't fall over this time, but there was more swearing.  Quite a lot more.
Apart from all of that, it was great fun, and I did eventually make it home in one piece.
I'm going to work tonight for a rest.

Oh shit . . . rumbled!

Erm, more or less since I started my plan in January *hides behind sofa*. 

My right lower back/SI joint/ hip has been buggered for years, and I always get training niggles but nothing as bad as it's been this year. I had a bike fit before Outlaw '13 and assumed that all should be sound in that department. However, in training this time around I just haven't felt comfortable on the bike. Can't think of a better description than 'squashed'. I was fine on the flat but as soon as I had to push a bit, up a hill or into the wind, it got very sore very quickly. Sore enough, I confess, to bring on tears. I really was beginning to think that it was pointless to try Austria. 

I've been to my magic massage lady and been stretching myself like a circus freak show, but to no avail. Yes, I know I should have picked the collective Pirate brain, but I felt that I was becoming a right moaning old mare about it and tried to HTFU. 

Anyhoo, as I said above, some DIY bike fitting seems to have largely resolved the issue. I know I only did 50 miles last week, but it felt amazing. I felt strong and relaxed, kept a consistent speed, and was really comfortable and happy riding aero. 

Please don't turn me into a frog

Although that might help in the swim

Will, hope your dad is getting better.

So Cougie has done10 more than Raf, who has done 10 more than me . . .who's next on the list?
My hip has been so painful on the bike that I've considered withdrawing from the race.  But, being a stubborn old bag, I wasn't going to give in that easily so I did bit of googling on bike fit.  The outcome is that my seat is now higher, and I can't believe the improvement.  My last ride was only 50 but, for the first time in months,
it was 50 comfortable miles at a consistent pace.  The new seat position has also made riding aero so much easier - more stable, less scary.
Who knew an inch could make such a difference?

We're in Velden too - could be a breakaway independent Pirate Republic.
