All the very best Seren and good luck to Symes for day two.I was just reading the twitter feed. "Sever gales forcecast next two". I hope you have very strong pegs for your tent.
Symes out on the bike. Pissing down here so going to be a very long day. He is in very good spirits and finished yesterday in 16.01 hours.
Well done Symes. Hope the crews are all in good spirits.
Thank you Mrs SYmes .... I seriously hope you get some decent weather at some stage down there
Go Symes and good luck for you Seren (not sure if you need that more for the tent than the competing!)
I don't even fancy running in this rain, never mind swim and bike and camp and support
Anyway, go Symes!!
Did I say good spirits?! Now in a foul mood, not surprising really with the torrential rain! Lets see how long it takes before tourettes starts!
Weather is bloody awful, so glad we are staying in a log cabin.
does sound grim - good luck today Symes and for the next few days as the weather doesn't look set to improve much
Did the beeping stop last night, Mrs Symes?
Shout out to both of you - It's as much an endurance event supporting as it is competing!
Luckily the alarm did stop going off!!
I know what you mean Holly but there are times where you darent utter the words that you are tired. Luckily havent got to crying at totally irrational things stage yet!!
He is back smiling again and out on lap 4 of the bike.
Purple Trilady - I have got Waffys pirate monaco for you.
Sending warmth, affection and surreptitious cat naps your way, Mrs S.
And of course to Seren et al.
Big luvs from afar.
Go Symes, Go Mrs Symes
Sending dry thoughts down to ATKeep the sense of humour guys
Thinking of our soggy athletes and the support crew! Keep at it guys!
Symes has done 7 out of 10 bike laps. Course has been re-routed now cos of a tree that has fallen. Conditions are terrible with torrential rain.
Poor Seren had to put her tent up in this. She now reckons she needs alcohol
Bless them all - I do hope it clears up for everyone's sake.
Likewise, doing the distances in ideal weather would be hard enough, but in this weather, I dread to think.
Bloody hell.. it was dreadful weather last year... and now its happening all over again... such a shame...
Total respect for those out there having a go...
Symes out on the run now and looking very smiley! we have had sun!! For about 10mins!
Mrs Symes/Waffy - thanks for the extra monaco, I think I may need it !!
Seren - I hope the weather dries up for you
I'm struggling to think straight about anything at the moment, I think panic is setting in
Seren - can you be rehoused in the main building or a lodge or something?
