MC, the phone is dead, but shiny new one arrived, so just waiting for the changeover of number as I don't want the hassle of a new number and spend time learning how this new one works (need a teenager for a few hours to teach me).

I need a rest Cake, but I didn't do any running at the weekend, just managed to fall off my bike (another fail to unclip in time) and then left my phone in kit and washed it, so no mobile for a few days.

Only bruised and sore but feel like I have been run over, so skipped this mornings swim and started work early instead.

Hoping to meet up with Dustboy and Soup Dragon for a ride at the weekend.

Good work by those running,  marshalling and cycling to train stations.

I did a 10 mile TT on Saturday morning, hard work but enjoyable at the same time. Seemed very posh with a man to hold the bike for you to get a decent start, had to relax as it felt very scary. I slowed down too much for the first junction then got into the hang of it, sweeping through the others without touching the brakes. I managed to hit a top speed of 39.4mph downhill and averaged 15.1 for the whole thing which is super speedy compared to the usual 12mph, shows how much holding an aero position helps. Good cakes and hot drinks afterwards.

Spent the rest of the weekend puppy sitting. Did nip over to the Bacchus race at Denbies vineyard but only saw one pirate.

Still thinking about what events to do next year.

OMG, first day back at Pilates class tonight. Did not realise I was so tight in my back and legs and the core muscles had gone to mush.

No chance of any exercise tomorrow as it is our wedding anniversary and I have been told we are going out for a meal, I may even go mad and have some booze.

Great thread and so useful for the likes of myself with a dodgy hip and unable to run/walk more than 2 miles at the moment.

I did an OW swim on Saturday, my first this year, went with a friend for their first OW swim so it was nice and relaxed and only 800m, the wetsuit did fit very snuggly.

Sunday was a short lumpy bike ride, then visiting my Dad.

Hoping to get some MTB done over the weekend, will see how the weather goes. at least I have now bought some inner tubes in case of disaster.

Mallowpuff, any sign that says hilltop town will mean mountain ahead.

Today I swum over one mile in the coached session, it was a tough one, coach got us to do "a short Hungarian" which turns out to be 25m butterfly, 50m backstroke, 75m breaststroke, 100m front crawl, then continuing back down the way you came, so 75m breast, 50m back and 25m fly to finish. I did not cheat and pop in some front crawl to keep up with the others which is my usual behaviour.

I have also today entered the cycle club's friendly TT race on 10th September, so now I can train and wibble about a 10 mile ride.

What have I let myself in for and can the lazy and non competitive me come back please.

Becks, I have very short hair and still wear a hat. Boots sun, sea and swim shampoo and body wash stuff is great at removing chlorine smell, if long hair , tie it up under the hat and also use conditioner after each swim. I used to have waist length blonde locks in my early twenties so now the hassle.

Mr Steady has a new MTB, so yesterday which is usually a rest day became an after work, pootle around the local common. Much fun but hard work.

I have not done much of anything this week, apart from gardening, but tonight enjoyed watching the eye candy of the Olympic divers and gymnasts.

BecksF, a wetsuit does help if you need to stop, just bob about, don't worry as a kayak is bound to appear within seconds and the person will  ask if you are OK. It happened to me in the Serpentine and more recently at Thorpe.
