Great news that you are back running GM

Beer and pizza for lunch followed by a swim and a jaunt into the local traffic on one of the hotel's bikes - good fun but got a bit overheated

Vietnamese restaurant tonight!

Great news GD! Enjoy your hols too Rome is lovely, my top tip, don't drive a hired minibus round the city for 4 hrs getting hopelessly lost.

Poacher, both seem like good choices. If you are looking for relaxed riding then go for the defy; if you want something a bit more aggressive and rapid then go for Planet X - horses for courses but only marginal edging either way for each I think.

Currently on hols here too on a tour of Vietnam and Cambodia. Loved Hanoi with "crossing the road" seemingly the local sport and hen a cruise round Ha Long bay - even had a swim then a flight across to Siem Reap to visit the Angkor temples (amazing) and now in lovely beach hotel on an island off the coast. Too hot to run in any place we've been but this spot has a 30m pool so I've been bashing out the lengths to try to off set the 2000calorie breakfasts. Off to Sweden in less than a fortnight for OtillO!

Yes, that is my local patch Poacher, I've run up Hoad quite a few times when I used to work in the town. Hope you had a tail wind!

Had a couple of weeks off pretty much, bit of cycling around Hawkshead yesterday and an hour of swimrun practice early doors today in Windermere - 5Kish run and 1.5K ish swim

TAR - great to hear from you and well done on your "podium" spot - v impressive! A minute quicker than last year too! Impressive form....

Nice reps Leslie and yes, I'd have smashed it! Few weeks of recovery / holiday now before OtillO. Hoping the broken up nature of running and swimming will enable me to cover the 40miles of running without crumbling - tight cut offs and a team partner piles the pressure on a bit!

How is everybody today?
Had a bad time personally and had serious back problems on the run and ended up with a run leg over an hour longer than usual and was mostly shuffling.
11:22 total and probably my last IM race - about time I listened to my body and eased off a bit

Everything hurts today!

PMJ - it puts it into perspective when Jan Frodeno put in a 2:40 marathon last week at Challenge Roth to finish with a WR total time of 7:35 - (45min swim! / 4:09 bike!)

Enjoy your holiday Moof - hope you get a target lined up soon fella

Enjoy the bike Lorenzo and hope Fishy recovers soon

Really gutted for you Moof - I was looking out for you all day and wondered why I couldn't see your result
Very mixed day for me
1:07 steady swim
5:16 bike - felt great and came off the bike 4th in age group and in the 20s overall I think
5 miles into the run my hip started playing up and my back seized up - had to jog/walk with lying down to stretch every couple of hundred metres - ended up just walking with my hands on my thighs as though climbing a mountain (it is flat). 4:52 or so for the run giving a total time of 11:22
Not overly happy - enjoyed the bike but I think my running days are nearing an end sooner than I thought
Right - off for some beer!
