Sleeping (ha!) in a tent and general Pirating - am now knackered! Will post something coherent tomorrow

Great running all

I was chatting to someone at the race about that, FF. Apparently it was Nottingham Pride this weekend and possibly something to do with that. I hope the dates don't correspond again next year!

Well that's the fancy dress sorted then

Report to follow, but in summary:

540 miles for a swim in a shit-filled pond, 2 nights in a tent (my mostest favouritest thing in the whole wide world ever), a borderline hangover, loss of voice and partial deafness.

Feed station was great fun

To those of you whose kids were helping, may I just say that they were bloomin' marvellous. They're a credit to you

Awwwwwww, you guys are great.  Thanks for those supportive words, I'm feeling a bit emotional now.  Bloody onions.
Day of total rest today before driving down to Outlaw tomorrow.  Bit of doggy paddle on Sunday morning, then spend the rest of the day carb loading.  It's not too early to start carb loading for LN, right?

 in line with corporate branding requirements for the feedstation .....

I would offer to bring nurses uniforms, but mine doesn't look exactly like that

Nurse outfits for you two then


wasn't it Nursey that was the best nurse when there was a finger trapped in the car door?


Best nurse? Hmmmm … you've obviously never seen me at work.

I am so jealous of you lot and all your running.  It's just been impossible for me this past week, and next week isn't looking any better.  I was starting to get very down about it all and wondering if I should ditch LN. 
However, I have given myself a good kick up the arse (amazing what you can do with a bit of yoga).  After next week I still have 8 weeks until LN, so all is not lost.  I have been enduring the turbo to keep my cardiovascular fitness ticking over and to make my legs work.  It's not running, I know, but it's better than nothing.
I'm making two weeks off sound like such a drama, but it kind of feels that way to me.
