Sounds good, Wabby. Decadave - hoping to get out on the bike course myself soon - I'd like to at least ride it as a recce.

I'm the other way round - I've got some sort of tennis elbow thing on my right arm which has been hanging around for a couple of months - I'm worried about putting too much load on it in swimming practice. Trouble is I've never swum further than 2K in my life, and want to actually hit the distance before Outlaw day so I'm not panicking on the day. Any advice welcome!

Its not stopping me biking and running, though, and those aren't going too badly - first century ride set for the Dare2B Cicle Sportive at Rutland Water an a few weeks time. Anyone else doing that one?

Booo - I know what you mean. Float kicking for me tends to leave me stuck in the middle of the length drifting gently sideways! My ten-year-old, of course, belts up and down doing it with no problem at all. Wonder if he fancies a dip in a rowing lake?!

Went straight through when I did an upload about lunchtime yesterday.

Any 100m cycle ride Yorkshire area for the following dates?

I'm picking up at least one or two long Sportive to practice some longer rides, but entering and planning on riding on my own. It means that you get the food stops and support that we'll hopefully get in the iron events, but you still have to pace yourself and you'll have no-one to draft. Don't know if that's an option for you?

OK - I'm in for this, having just taken over my wife's place - I'm using it as my Fink Olympic practice as part of training for the Outlaw. I'll join FB in hoping for a nice warm wind-free day! Oh, and warm water, please...

5 days until the start of the dreaded Fink! (although the first day's a rest day, so at least I won't be one day behind after one day!)
