Millsy, that was me.  I will be dishing numbers out at The Ox events this weekend too.

Peter, yes I did swim the Channel, but that feels like a lifetime ago even though it was less than 3 years.

I've been for one more swim this week, in the Nene this time.  I didn't realise how much I missed the social aspect of sport as well as the DOMS and endorphins

Open Water swimming

Had my first river swim for two years this evening, hot on the heels of my first sea swim in well over two years, last weekend.

Water was surprisingly warm considering I thought I had lost all my acclimitisation after being out of the water for so long.

I have lost a lot of stamina and strength but I guess they will come back with time and practice.  I think I did a little too much this evening and it was a bit scary when I discovered that my leg strength was so poor that I struggled to climb up the river back afterwards.

But onwards and upwards, as they say

Anyone remember me?  I *think* I might be on my way back to running after a break of at least 2 years.

My health issues are slowly resolving themselves and I am getting my energy back.  I still have to be really careful not to overdo things but the good news is that at least I CAN do things now.

I have yet to summon up the courage to give running a go, but I have been for a couple of swims and a very short bike ride.  I can't believe how much fitness and strength I have lost but I know that it will come back if I keep at it.

So... did I miss anything?

Hello guys.  Sorry for the late check in.  As some of you are aware, my health still isn't great so I'm not up to taking part myself, but I will be available all day Saturday and the first part of Sunday to heckle *ahem* provide encouragement where ever I am needed.  I will also be bringing Mr SC with me.

Well done to everybody.  Particular thanks to the volunteers that helped me this year.  As many of you know, I've been very ill over the last year and I would have struggled if I hadn't had the help of so many people to do the physical work for me.

It would be great to see some of you next year, whether running or helping out on the other side of the fence.

Well done to everybody that ran.  I didn't manage to spot many of you but those I did see looked good.

Don't forget to give back and help those of us on the other side of the fence one year.  It's just as much fun as running but we have cake and fizz too, and can walk the next day.

I hope you are all recovering well.  I bumped into someone at the services on my way home that was struggling to climb the stairs.  I said well done to him for yesterday and he replied 'How did you know?'

Sorry to be awol.  My health hasn't been great, but that's not going to stop me from coming down today and being there to see you all in your glory just before Mile 17

I'll assume that you were all drunk, or out doing your long runs over the long weekend so didn't get a change to see this

Here is where we will be on Google maps:,-0.014196,3a,75y,342.34h,80.68t/data=!3m4!1e1!3m2!1sWlV2SF6tH5RwIZDTZPyEqw!2e0?hl=en

On the right behind the railings.  The water station will be immediately before us as you come up the road

And we will look something like this
