Rocco, wow, that is some bike ride. Cake for recovery purposes is perfectly acceptable, just remember to do some stretching.

Spoke with next door who did the bike leg for me in my relay team, he convinced me that your fresh swim will set me up nicely and even if I took my time Buttercup would still be able to run the marathon in time.  Wibble over.

MC you are quite right in that having done 86 in awful weather almost total non drafting then by next year it is possible.

OW swim done and friend enjoyed it. 1500m done in the wetsuit which felt restrictive the whole time.


Had a wibble about Outlaw bike but told myself to get some PMA in my head. I have time to do the distance just need to continue working on speed. 

OK, I think we get the message.......

My home shopping delivery (first one) failed on the new potatoes and the stir fry had a use by date of tomorrow and I wanted that for Saturday lunch. Luckily I still had some potatoes in the cupboard so no disaster for dinner.

Rpitchfo, what distance are you looking for? and roughly where in the country? I am down south, so that may not be any use to you.
Some of the HIM races have sold out for next year already. Could be worth looking at races that took place this year for the when and where as they are normally held the same time each year, then look at the websites to see when entries open.

Welcome rpitchfo

Sounds like you have a good start with being a swimmer. I had an ankle ligament injury back in 2000, was on crutches for a month, so understand that you will need to take it nice and steady in getting fit. I am looking at doing either a 5k or 10k in early December.

Relay team name has been decided  - Girls that Tri.

Buttercup, glad you found your mojo, mine is around but I am making it have a rest for another day or two.

MC enjoy your massage, it is a good hurt.
