Indeed it is good to see him back. Haven't seen him in ages.
Birky - Yep - i had a go of that this morning on some trail close to my flat. I may have missed something but who is Ovett?
Beautiful day here. 5 miles as the sun was rising and it was a beautiful run. A little sore in my hamstring but the trail helped!
emmy: He's an owl that I sometimes see on my SOC runs and I just nicknamed him 'Ovett'. Ovett the owl
I know I know my 'sense' of humour...
Ha! Love it! I never see owls' around here. Ive seen a woodpecker once
Morning - spin, run, swim this morning. Sore achilles for me so *whisper it* I might not train tonight. Beautiful day, but 7 degrees when I left the house, ouch.
Morinng Kate: Okay I won't tell anybody
30 mins Steady. Again mostly off road with Geordie. Not a bad session.
NW: 1 cat, 1 dog, 1 owl (Ovett is back), 2 cyclists, 1 Kingsmill Van, 6 cows and 6 horses.
PW: 1 car.
Oh and yesterday I saw an Athletics Weekly dated 5th Dec 2013 ( !) still on sale in the co-op in the next village. Seriously !!
I know news travels slowly in these parts of the world,but...
Coffee is now calling
Up early and off for a last long Alpine walk.
Tomorrow's SOC will be to head to the airport
maths: Enjoy your last long Alpine walk.
It's sunny here today
Morning all - 6 mile run OR 3 NW just magpies and 1K swim. Enjoy the last day of the holiday MC. Birky, they might get a new mag in before Rio.
Kate: They might, but I wouldn't count on it.

PSC, have you been running yet?
PSC, have you been running yet?
Yep It's not the running that worries me... it's getting to T2! Doing an LDWA tomorrow - decided to do it about an hour ago! Will bike on Sunday and the weather will remind me how wet the swim is on Monday! Perfect training weekend.
Evening all, as they used to say in Z Cars.
Up and manic packing in a minute
Have fun today psc
Morning you lot
40 mins Steady . Mostly off road with Geordie. Not a bad session. Dry with no wind.
NW: 1 owl, 2 cats, 6 horses, 8 cows, 1 cyclist, 2 tents, 1 Kingsmill Van
All the best to those racing or retuning from holidays abroad
Mornng psc, morning maths.
Afternoon all - sitting in the sunshine in Bournemouth after a disastrous sprint tri this morning, all good fun though. Got lost in the swim and trapped inside my new wetsuit in T1, have decided just to spectate as Mr F does the swim this afternoon, hypothermia just isn't my thing. I think there is Thames Meandering happening today, so belated good luck. Long weekend, woo!
Rest Day today, been out a walk with Geordie.
kate: Oh dear re the Tri yesterday.
kate - how did you get lost in the swim?
woke with a headache so decided not to go out for the planned long run, looks like it will be in the rain tomorrow instead. Got to visit the inlaws, get the gerbils back, buy some food and visit my parents today so a bit of a busy day ahead
Busy day for you then today !
Evening - 10 mile run at 6.30 plus 45 mins looking for my friend's house key which I dropped in the woods, still missing. 58 OR, no, that is not a typo, it all happens at SOC in Sandbanks. Another day off tomorrow, woo!
58 OR kate?? Was there a club run? Well done for bothering to count them!
I went for a run last night in the end to get rid of the day of visiting older people, and the bottom of my calf/achillies area felt sore, more tight than anything I think but painful to run on. Only started half way through an out and back run, so did 9 miles. Think I need to hunt out the foam roller and maybe book myself in for a sports massage
Morning all A lovely 9 miler for me this morning as the sun rose.
Had a lovely weekend seeing 5.30 again and at Thames Meander.
blimey... 58 OR. There are only about 6 OR in our whole village!
Drum roll..... I swam this morning. TaDah!! I had forgotten how odd it was to swim in the public lanes. You've got to be so much more attentive of slow swimmers otherwise you could bump nose first into the gusset of an uber slow breaststroker! Not good for world peace! On the shoulder injury front - it still hurts but should be OK to get me round a half ironman swim as long as I don't follow Kate's example and get lost!
Apparently we are off to the Ashford Retail centre soon. Not sure if that is a good or bad thing!
Get stretching Maths. Gratuitous advice alert - go and buy some "natural hero". It's a ginger based muscle rub and is magic. It's very easy to self massage the bottom of the legs and that will be better for you than rolling IMHO.
Morning peeps.... don't get too wet. I think Birky has stolen the summer today. It's a driech (sp?) and miserable day down here!
PSC - well done on getting back out swimming!
Sunny but windy here. No Monday holiday till later in Sept.
psc: Yup dreich is a good shout
thanks PSC, I'll have a look for it
