  • 'ExtravaLanza 2013'  sounds good to me image

    Whats happening with the ride on Sat Meldy? we need to publicise it a bit more.

    Oh and just one warning, there could be a chance ill have to work but im effectively supporting a 7 day working week indefinitely, so most of my arrangements could be subject to change.

  • Tshirts - Well I hate to admit it, but its not you, its seems to be a glitch on their website! The 'wife beater' top which has 'SNAIL' on it should be customisable (if that's a word) but on the front only. There's nothing on the back. if you really want this one, I can contact Lisa at Spreadsheet and have a word.

    M...eldy, the strappy one - you can't have any wording on the front anymore. And ExtravaLanza 2013 just fits on the back, but its tight:

    Schmunks, no decision as yet
    I favour

    Extravalanza
    2013

    With 'PSOF' on the front under the Skull and Crossbones

    I agree image

    Why dont we suggest to include 'ExtravaLanza 2013' and the rest is up to you?  Then at least we get a common denominator

    I agree image

  • Ok

    I am unhappy with the weather.

    I bailed this weekend as my hands just feel permantly cold from my regular commuting.



    Its looking crap for this week



    However i have booked 10 weeks of nice (ok 10 degrees) weather for the next 10 weeks. please send 10 euro for me to extend the booking into a group booking. if we get enough people we can get a group weather discount

    Note - i need euros as i am dealing with a european weather supplier.
  • Barlos thought you said you couldn't do Saturday? Anyway, leaving mine 11ish aiming for 5 hrs!
  • I cant face another long bike in the cold. Anyone got an 150min turbo session they would like to share.

  • stop wimping out..i had my leg warmers down around my ankles again yesterday on my long ride and gave my winter gloves to a girl whose hands were cold and wore my spring gloves........HTFUimage

    I wimped out and turboed. 2 and half hours. legs and brain now fried.

  • Well it's supposed to be 7 degrees tomorrow, positively toasty!

  • it felt freezing out again this morning on the bike

  • I cant make it to the ride on the 2nd. I have then booked myself for the RideIt on the 3rd.

    I know image

  • so .. do you think its too late to start training ?? .     I think id better go for a T-shirt that says something like "extravalanza 2013.....on the beach early"

     

  • Nah .. never too late   image

  • I'd suggest that May 19th maybe a tad too late image

  • Do what Barlos is doing and class it as a brick session for Challenge Henley image
  • Hahaha... Like it .. Yep that worksimage
  • So, 10 weeks to go, how's everyone doing?

     

  • Great - haven't been able to run for 4 weeks, so the marathon thingy bit should be a breeze image

  • Oh dear .. but at least you're able to bike?  A marathon can be hobbled round...

  • I was thinking more of a stagger as there's lots of bars on the run leg - 26 mile pub crawl image

    How's your training going then?

  • I'm pah to run training anyway.  I did IMW in 5.35ish after doing no run training because of a bad achilles.  Then at Outlaw after doing lots and lots of running (ie London marathon), I did the run in 5.20!  15 measly minutes faster.  (I did go the wrong way and then gossiped all the way round .. but still!)

    Happy with training.  Done a fair few 70-80 milers on the bike and 12+ mile runs.  Should probably swim more but it's boring!

  • My longest run so far is 7 miles so I think I will be joining the conga at the back   image

    Tomorrow I am going to bike in shorts and a tshirt in 20 degrees of sunshine with my own personal aid stations


    Not.

  • Bike in shorts?  What a strange concept image

    Us lot are going get such a shock in Lanza after our weather we've had to train in!

  • I spent all last year saying 'all those people training for Lanza are lucky to have such good weather'

    We are going to have winter all the way to May aren't we?  !!

  • Oh I don't know - I had to stop and remove a layer on a ride at some point last week. Although its looking nasty again tomorrow  image

  • Last Saturday I took off my inner gloves and cycled in just the outer ones!
