Challenge Weymouth

Posted: Yesterday at 13:35

As you've probably gathered by now, I wasn't there, and reading the reports I'm glad I wasn't, I am not a strong swimmer. - seems like the sea kicked up roughly that day as IM Wales had quite a few DNFs in the swim. I suffered a foot injury 2 weeks before Weymouth and so wasn't able to race, I was barely able to walk - I tried that once before at Roth wearing an Aircast on my ankle and had a DNF so I pulled out of Weymouth rather than prolonging my recovery by racing. Not very piratey, but there's always another race to do. Well done to both of you.

Sept 19th, tomorrow, talk like a pirate day...

Already? God, it seems to come round quicker every year!

Racing with dogs

Posted: Yesterday at 13:19

And that is not without risk - my OH's shins are covered in scars, almost all of them through running with one or more dogs with their leashes looped through his belt. Just a few days ago he went down hitting his hip and knee on a rock and he's still limping. Personally I put harnesses on both our dogs when I run with them, clip the leashes onto the rings on the harnesses and I keep the leash ends in my hand, I feel this is safer than having them tethered to my waist.

Happy birthday JJ from one Virgo to another - and many thanks  everyone for all my birthday wishes.

Am hosting dinner for the dog club members tonight so need to take a little trip to the bank before I go! And before anyone brings it up, nope, the dogs don't get to join the dinner table! It's Greek food.

Bath Triathlon Cancelled

Posted: 16/09/2014 at 09:19

Yes I agree - Tri Pfalz was cancelled this year without any more information from the organizers than they couldn't interest enough sponsors and thus couldn't afford to run the event, which left all of us who had chosen it as an "A" race for the season frustrated and diappointed

Seren's cotswolds 226 report

Great report Seren and it sounds like a good one to do - I really am able to call myself a crap swimmer, never broken 1hr 45mns for the 3.8

Great evening at the Wurstmarkt wine fest with our dog club friends, rather a lot of wine consumed, good conversation and an all around good time had by all.

Like to make it but not sure yet as we have the Cologne 12km swim at the end of May, lots of arrangements to work out.

Hi JJ -  I think you could say that, we've been here since 1976! GB is not the same country we left all those years ago, there have been so many changes over that time.

I am so pleased that the news on Mrs. JJ is good, hope she will be back to full health and fitness very soon.
