Red, that cakeathon sounds like a lovely event.

TE, my car has to go in to be worked on too but I couldn't get an appt until 11 June, they are so busy! I took the car over for them to check out a problem with the dashboard lights, the emergency lamp for the airbag keeps lighting up and I also get an accoustic signal. The chief mechanic who tested it said there is a problem with the relay, the car can still be driven ok, just that the airbag is inactive and won't deploy in case of accident! Sounds dangerous to me, although of course I don't plan on having an accident.

Well done Columba.

John is working in Belgium this week. I swam 3000m this morning, again I got a lane to myself, don't understand it, the air's cold but it's much warmer in the water, nice and comfortable. My time was 1 hour 10 mins, very pleased with that as I've been working towards sub-3 hrs for the 6km, looks like I could go well under if all goes ok, fingers crossed. John has been allowed to drop down to the 6km as well as he hasn't recovered enough from his virus to be able to swim 12km as originally planned. Shh, keep it under wraps, but I've started to have thoughts about going for the 12km next year myself, isn't that crazy?

Will take the dogs for a run tomorrow morning.

After hearing that entries for our own club triathlon are down on last year, on the spur of the moment we have both entered the sprint event (500m swim/20km cycle/5km run). Neither of us are currently up to doing the Olympic distance race, the bike course is tough, it has a long hard climb and a very hairy descent, a tight U-bend halfway down and if you don't slow down enough to make it round, you'll quickly come to grief! I've done the race before and that bend always causes me to brake as hard as I can.Not ideal, but I have to admit that bit really scares me. So this time I'll happily do the sprint - it's flat! Time to dig out my 5km run plan!

Nice day at the Lohnsfeld dog club - both dogs performed well, I was especially pleased with Nemo's attack work, he did everything perfectly and there was no problem getting him to let go of the arm sleeve when we left the field, till now that's been the biggest problem with him then grabbing hold of a substitute - sometimes that has been part of me! Hopefully the lessons he had at the training camp are now imprinted on his brain and he's broken the habit, getting nipped by dog teeth isn't very pleasant. Today he let go of the arm and walked quietly back to the car with me.

Indeed it is! Very well done PipRam.

My journey was a long one, I've been able to swim since I was 7 years old but never had any lessons. I only started improving once we joined our tri club and went to their training sessions. I am regularly swimming 3 to 4km. Next weekend I am doing a 6km OW swim race - once upon a time I would have been scared silly but I am really looking forward to it!

John and I both swam 4000m this morning, to our surprise the pool wasn't at all busy, we had a lane each all to ourselves. John is feeling better but still doesn't think he can swim the 12km next weekend, he's going to see if the organisers will let him move down to the 6km instead.

Be prepared for lots of big climbs. This one is a championship event so it won't be easy.

Haaaapppyyyy Birrthdayyy toooOOooo usss!

Love it! Here in Germany we often get admiring comments on our pirate kit which of course we wear at races. I make a point of telling people the black and yellow is the real thing, the black and white pirates and worse still, the pink ones, are just poor imitations.
