Absolutely right - I don't want to see a plate of chips for a long long time!

Excellent result on your time trial Columba, well done.

Dog training tonight, but I do have a small matter of a 40-min bike ride with sprint intervals to do first.

Same old competition 2014

Very hot and humid here in der Vaterland as well. Yesterday was 34c, in the morning we went to an open water swim event, John came 9th and I was 11th. John and I had to help with the local swimming club festival last night, for the 3rd year in a row we were assigned to 2nd shift, cooking the chips. We started at 10pm and cooked chips until 1 am. By the time we cleaned up and got home it was 2am!   Couldn't go to bed until I'd showered.

Today we did NOT get up early! But once we got going, took the dogs up to the lake to go swimming. There were a few very light rain showers on the way back, which were very welcome. It is still very warm now.

Rather an old-fashioned name nowadays, methinks. Perhaps he's named for someone?

Columba, you are indeed getting there! Well done. I was in the pool again tonight and my leg is feeling much more comfortable. I react badly to all kinds of bites and stings.

Redhead, I would do the same as Mike and steer clear of the hornets - a sting from one of those would put me in the hospital!

30c here today and more promised for the next few days, so too hot to run,

Columba, they looked like wasps but  smaller. Luckily Charlie seems to have suffered no ill effects. I've always had extreme reactions from anything that bites or stings - many years ago a horsefly bite knocked me out! I shall avoid  that path now.

Well, I now have a hot, red, itchy patch roughly 8 inches by 10 - was going to run tonight but I think a long cool swim in a cold pool is more the order of the day.

Not a happy camper this morning - out in the woods last evening, on a path we've

 used for years, Charlie and I both got stung, I have 3 stings on my inner thigh and they are very hot and annoying. Luckily Charlie, after his initial yelp, doesn't seem to be bothered much, thank God, because dogs can quickly go into shock and die within 10 minutes from a sting unless treated immediately with antihistamines.

Bad luck SP,  hope you get better soon.

Good for you - I was scared at my first OW swim but now I really love it. Just takes getting used to.
