What are the timings for the weekend? We have the plasterer in so thinking about popping over and spectating with my daughter/get her used to being dragged around to events.

Would like to watch the swim but think it may be off too early, so probably the run? Is it a loop or out and back course?

So following the birth of my daughter 8 weeks ago and subsequently doing nothing but eating and getting used to no sleep I am now back ready to start for next year.

I have been reading and got a few more pages to catch up on but it looks like everyone is doing well.

Ali - Im sorry to hear about Barcelona, I was routing for you!

My plan for next year has changed with the focus going to be on shorter/more local stuff as time for training is going to be less as well as less money, but Im sure ill still have fun and thats the main thing

Does anyone have any idea where the 'new' Outlaw half is going to be? Possibly somewhere South?

I'll happily chip in with newborn baby poop, There seems to be a lot of excess to get rid of!

Well it seems as per last year the gods are against me and it's a no again, with a wedding last year and a newborn this year funds are being diverted away for things like nappies! 

Have got an agreement that I can enter a couple of halfs and will possibly see how quickly Mallorca sells out in a couple of months. But may have to wait for 2017 for my 1st long attempt. It better be worth it!

Cos he entered a half ironman (70.3 Staffs) a couple of weeks back, so a 10km should be a piece of pi$$

But clearly wasn't/isn't!

Why did you start with a 10k? are you able to 'run' 5k?

Well done Diggers and Razor! Maybe some better prep with the alarm clock next time Mrs D 

i have have ran twice in the last 3 days, trying to get back into it all and running every other day. First run of 4 miles had an average of 11:00 minute miles, 2nd was 9:59 so an improvement. Will be out again this evening as it's sunny again! Im starting to enjoy running again!
