Based on one of her Facebook posts I imagine KO's is petitioning the US Embassy to get some form of burrito fast food outlet in Amsterdam. I mean come on we even have a couple of those in Glasgow.
Iain - I know Neil's story. It has a very good conclusion but it's his news if he wants to share it.
Brighton to London to Brighton bike riding dream on hold (for me at least). Appointment fixed up with surgeon on Monday afternoon. Got to get this lumpy thing on my back-side (as in, back-side of my knee) to be looked at. My actual backside is rather fine as it happens. The cycling shorts prove it. No arguments please.
neil's story...he upgraded to a delorean and will be back some time soon?
TD - Good to hear that your bum looks good in lycra, just DON'T show us the front! I've had all the ken doll viewing I can take with the TDF and olympic cycling. Although ken dolls are better than the meat and veg displays from the athletics. Don't guys get that they have their own VERY obvious version of camel toe?
I doubt many male athletes give much thought to how they look, more to how they perform.
I remember getting pelters when running past a bunch of lads waiting for a football supporters bus when I was trying out my trisuit for the first time. It really wasn't the best timing to do that brick session.
Great site, Dannirr. The cars are brilliant! *DV, this, apparently, is the Hungarian delegation to the 1896 Olympics...just so you know the dress code...*
Hi Iain, no it wasn't practicality, in fact the replacement (if it ever arrives - ETA February 2013) will be even less practical: only three wheels, no roof, no doors, no heater. Can't wait
On the shorts: I think "the Rummelator" is making it worse by defending himself online
Hee hee hee. men and lycra shorts are not a good combination. You'd think they could put support or something in there. It must hurt when it jangles and movement may lead to catching in a rowing boat.
Olympics wise, I'm enjoying dancing with your horse at the moment. That britian's got talent dog is a light-weight compared to this!

I was starting to worry about DLR too (well more than usual) but it turns out his "holiday" was, liked a proper one.
Oi! Watch it you.
Combination of holiday and not having ran since Tuesday of last week.
Sal - saw a couple of minutes of dressage. How shite is that? It's not a sport it's training an animal to do tricks.
Another medal coming up for Yorkshire later this afternoon.
am on to BMX now. It's carnage! I'd say most sports are training "animals" to do tricks better than others.
HA HA, the guardian blogger doesn't get dressage to music either.
Another gold for Yorkshire
I heard Yorkshire was 7th on the overall medal table
Training question please:
When running to a specific pace, is it better to set your Garmin to instant pace, or average pace? I have always used Average, but I think that might cause me to run too fast initially in an attempt to get the pace where I want it. Instant would be better, but is the sampling period too short thus causing you to speed up / slow down too often?
This is only important to me now as I need to do some intervals (mile long each though).
DV and others - here is the schedule for the London to Brighton event:
and here is a good route and spectator map:
Dan - I only use the average. It's true that it's a bit inaccurate at first but the instant readings seem to be all over the place - 3 minute miles one second and 15 minutes the next.
Hmmmm......on the 6th July I weighed 11st 13lb, today its 12st 13lbs. Guess I enjoyed that holiday a little bit too much!
Off to Edinburgh again next week - whose there? SR - you still working in Auld Reekie?
I use pace and average pace - keeps me in check (I like to think)
That Corvette is porn indeed....dribble....
Dannir - I've got a view on my Garmin that has both average and instant pace. I know that the instant can be a bit all over the place but the average can be a bit too slow at times. Happy medium us to use both of them
Thanks for the watch info!! Helpful. One more question.....does anybody use manual lap in marathon?? Just wondered from the point of accuracy, and what you do if you forget or miss a marker?? Or am I just being ignorant again?!?!
Intervals for me this morning, which after yesterdays 17.5 miles were mighty hard work.6 x 4 min with 1 min recoveries. Don't think I did too bad thou.
I'll also be in Edinburgh Monday 13th night for the Military Tattoo- should be different...
HS - Hope you have a nice weekend and the midges aren't too bad.
