I wrote a post, forgot to press submit, did something else and lost it.
That about sums me up this week.
Good luck at the relays, Musky.
Uber good luck at the Deca, Symes (probs too late here, have text). I'll be thinking of you and wishing you on all week.
Looks like I won't have to move!

Lexers, why's that?
(dons dark glasses to deflect Lexi's glare)
Good luck to Symes - will have a look on the tri board for updates.
And (collapse in shock) I just got 7/7 on the quiz of the week's news! I even knew or could make an educated guess at most of them!
Lexers, I'll look for you in the journals
Morning gentlefolk! Nowt of import happening here, except the tickets for The Darkness arrived; on the one they use for the address etc is printed 'THIS IS NOT A TICKET' in a 50 point font...
Am woobling for Symes already. The enourmity of it all...
SVT - Oh I think you should - and film your colleague's faces! Would be fantastic! Course, you might then become an ex-colleague, so beloved of this thread...!
GOM - all very mysterious, but is it fair to say work is going the way you want it to?
Mousicles - I feel like you need a hug. So : (((Mouse)))
Morning Folks .
Crashie.....you have mail !!!
Sun's out.....So's my washing.!!!
At least Symes will start with nice weather......although by the end, i doubt if he will notice what day it is let alone the type of weather.....!!!
Woohoo Lexi, can I have your autograph please? As reasons for surgery not to go ahead, it's the 2nd best yet.
Gom, not moving can have serious reprecussions for your health of Crash Hamster size proportions. I'm guessing you mean relocation though?
I can't get the live updates on the Enduroman site to work, boo hiss.
Crashie, have emailed you but can't make the 19th as doing the Hell On The Humber 20/21st. Anyone else want to play HOTH? It's a 12 hour overnight ultra going back and forth over the Humber Bridge. I wonder if they do a 12 hour race going back and humber over the Forth bridge?
I've got the updates, GP. Symes and Mon are both on Lap 2 of the bike, along with about half of the field. One guy is storming it and is on Lap 4!!!
HOTH - is that running or riding?
HOTH is running.
GP..........Is that August? I am racing the week before.......But it sounds quite Interesting.....have you got a team...is it a team event? Details please..........!!!!
Did i just ask for details.....gosh my memory must be getting poor....I've forgotten how tough the last one was already... .!!!
Jeepers the stormer will blow if he's not careful......Keep pedaling Symes/Mon .!!!
Yes I havea link, but I think you maybe too lazy to click on it .
In other news, I will no longer be moving to Bedford with CK. We had a long chat and decided it would mean less travelling and be more financially sound if she moved to Brum instead. Result!
Just googled it...........Fab....team o 3 or Individual????.
Count me in.
Cool on no moving GP.
Good luck to all racers out there.
I've just found out another ex-colleague is about to lose the ex attachment. Work is starting to become strangely familiar with 3 of us there now. - Ant I heard from a friend, Roland, who works for your company that there are about 250 vacancies for engineers
It is going to be a hot lunchtime run today
SVT I think it's 10 ironman in 10 days now rather than 24 mile swim, 1120 bike, 262 run.
Lexi. HOTH is 20/21 August (7 pm to 7 am) it's 4 miles out and back over the Humber Bridge. Entry is £36 for that you get a tshirt, medical support (if needed) gels, bannananananas, water etc. You can do it on your own or as part of a team of 3 (1 runner must be on the course at all times).
I'm off soon.
Marshalling Towpath 10k tonight and no Ashton Court parkrun tomorrow as the estate will be overrun by cyclists at the "Bike Fest"
May go to the Bitton Railway beer festival tomorrow, but I am due to visit my mum in Cardiff sometime soon. Every year at the end of the football season I say "see you next season", which doesn't go down well.
Happy running/ cycling/ swimming/ strumming all
Well done Min
I've just been looking at the deca results pages and have realised that a horrifying number of names are familiar. This is very worrying. I am so going to end up an ironman widow in my retirement. Wickett has aspirations to be Tony Fisher and I can see myself as Arthur's wife (he was Arthur, wasn't he?) being thrown water bottles and standing there to pass out sandwiches for all eternity. I must have been a bad girl somewhere...
