SJ - a bit of swimming 1 to 1, another years bike training, some strength type running so you can run better off the bike..........easy peasy.

GM - crap ! sorry to hear that.

SJ - nice one, sub 10:15 next time ? if you can convince the SPO you want another go.

Abbers - one or other of mine is/was playing Sun to Weds so we only have last day tickets, but hopefully the pitch looks like a 5 day pitch.

Wow, marigold has brough more folks out of the woodwork than Jooles sub3 !

Noted the commenets re the quality of the coverage on the TV, but marathons maust be a tricky thing to commentate on, they arnt much of a spectator sport for most of the population including myself.

Great run Marigold - amazing story and performance. 2:15 is brilliant.

PP - you said you were going for a gold old fashioned sub marathon distance long run and then tried for a 7/7/7 !

40M bike for me y'day and then 10M inc 12x3mins/30sec today, which is going to bcome my long run until the Sept 1/2 IM, although I might try to make it 12M instead of 10M. 78M for July, the 100 isnt going to happen.

SJ - the trail race will have done your IM hopes good then, and like you say you are a year wiser. Just make sure you get the nutrition right. If you have already got stiff shoes, aero bottles and pointy hat etc then shaving your legs is next I guess, I have none of those so keep them hairy !

Marrows - paint them red then please. I'm more of a Swashbuckler than an Outlaw myself or more like I have a self imposed 1/2 IM upper limit due to the amount of "me" time I'm prepared to put in.

Abbers - it woudl take some temporary seating to stage a county game there but could be done.

SJ - sub 11 sounds like an achievable target then, the run split was the weak link. What have you done training wise compared to last year ? swim coaching ? more bike work ? Not sure a Tri Suit will make you quicker esp if you need a scooby !

Marrows - where are the pedicured and nicely painted toe nails ? I thought you are a filly ?

SJ - are you doing the Outlaw again, if so please remind me of last years splits and how you think you might compare in each.

Abbers - my youngest played at the new ground on IoW Sunday vs IoW U13s, nice place it was too.

wow, 31M and 3hr commutes ! at least its warm and light early at the mo I suppose. I'm going to have to look away during February and March as folks will be doing all sorts of mad midweek training at this rate by then.

PP - and you, 22M on a Tuesday !

JH1 - you obviously got it wrong, today is big miles day not 10K day !

I got it wrong too with 6M inc 25mins of 30s/30s at lunch. lovely and sweaty stuff. 62M for July. With a week left still too.

Selbs - sounds like that knee needs a rest from Footy !

Tmoth - no flapjacks on that list, sort it out next time !

Dachs - top bombing there.

PP - boozing and inadequate sleep eh ? you obviously have still got your training partner.

JH! - that was very TResque ! running off route. Havnt had the swimming lesson yet but hopefully it will work, its with CRABs swim coach.

Turbo and swim for me today so no running, but then I already have the mahoosive total of 56M to my name for July so far. Not sure I'll even make 100M as the SPO is having a carpal tunnel op on her wrist later in the week,so I need to take on more of the household chores and driving duties, which although it'll mean no foxtrot oscaring off for long training sessions for a few weeks, I dont mind that too much. It'll be her telling me that I'm doing her share of the chores wrongly as I'm not doing them exactly her way that will press my buttons !

Padams - good to see you healing up a bit. Boredom is a good sign.
