  • Hehehe i love a manky foot pic 
  • Quick pop in from the plane Went mostly to plan yesterday Took swim easy (a bit too easy) and was very congested, hit the first bike lap at normal IM race effort but then cruised the second to save extra for the run expecting to struggle. Jogged i…
  • Don't die BB!!!!! Great pics Lorenzo - sounds like a brill holiday Loving the cake action PMJ - good luck with the accidental marathon Poacher - don't stop now!  Had a crazy couple of weeks with race and hols in Canada, long trip back (includin…
  • Lake Maligne - amazing
  • Lake Louise 
  • Hi AR! Great to hear from you. Hope all is well even if the running is requiring more patience. Lovely post GM. I agree MsE - you'd make a great coach!   Very happy birthday Birch you massively old git! As for kids, we've got the "three boys the…
  • Milkshake with a cake on it!
  • Sounds like a lovely day GM! Congrats to Jr PMJ - have you planned on any changes to your lifestyle PMJ when you are sans kids? (3 of ours have gone and our youngest goes in 4 years so looking for tips!) Coming back nice and steady MsE Solid wee…
  • Quick pop in from Canada Had a great holiday and racing tomorrow (swim bike world champs!) Excited! Super WAVA scores, mental doubles, solid injury recovery and canoe madness has been duly noted. Have a great Bank Holiday Weekend you lovely peo…
  • Is that a baby cormorant?  That's not what attacked me last week - I'll have to re-consult the rspb bird finder!!! I think it might've been an eagle  or a pterodactyl.........
  • Sounds like a fantastic trip Lorenzo! Have a great time! Damage is permanent OO so regretfully hanging up my trainers (or maybe ceremonially setting fire to them) after my last run on 9th September  Enjoyed watching bits of the world champs this w…
  • Just do it PMJ and run to feel and enjoy it - the off road events give you a bit of an excuse to run within yourself and flex the effort up and down according to terrain rather than sticking to a metronomic pace. 26 will be no problemo. Poacher, "p…
  • Hey MsE - hip is goosed I'm afraid  Moderately uncomfortable if I don't do anything at all, a bit easier if I bike and swim regularly, horrible if I run.  Good news on your ankle!   Rehab on track then Leslie? Solid LSR and week there GM.  Well d…
  • Fingers are crossed for your recovery Leslie. Tasty pace there GD   Easy swim in the lake this morning- spent more time paddling and chatting than actual swimming I think 
  • Agreed MsE. tasty result for team GB in the marathon.... Easy weekend here - 1hr swim in lake yesterday with no animal escapades and just back from 2.5hrs ride in constant lashing rain - soggy!
  • Crikey Freemers - I like his comment "The ironic thing after the attack is that I did make my fastest time." I'm not bl00dy surprised!  Maybe bird attacks could be a useful training aid.... The fastest I've ever run was to get away from a couple …
  • But to be fair it did stop me worrying about what was "under" the water
  • Well I get that too and coincidentally was having those thoughts just before "the incident" because I was alone and in the absolute middle of the lake at its deepest.  I had just been telling myself to ignore the inner voices and then I was brutally…
  • Hmmmm, not sure waving my arms around and swearing and shouting "WHAT'S WRONG WITH YOU?!" at a bird in the middle of a lake at 6:30 in the morning constitutes "cool" OO.... 
  • Nah MsE, (other than the obligatory brazilian). 
  • In other news, I was swimming in Windermere on Tuesday morning, minding my own business right in the middle of the lake and felt something jagged grab my ankle really hard. Not very enjoyable! A giant bird dive-bombed me and bit me! Must've thought…
  • That's not a bad total Birch, I'm on 90.45 miles for the year (you know it's bad when you feel the need to quote it to 2 decimal places!). Glad the hammy is easing off. And yes, have an IM coming up in early September which, if I don't do any train…
  • Apologies - I'm sure I've missed loads of other epic achievements  I will try to lurk more effectively in the future

  • Hey everybody! hope all is well and that you are having splendid a summer. It's been crazy hectic with work, training, travel here but have tried to catch up with events on the thread. Well done on Vatternrundan Poacher. Quite an achievement as a …

  • GM I miss the run training massively. Losing it has felt like losing a part of me but it's just too uncomfortable. Think of the bike and swim activities as exercise methadone.....  But tri IS great fun - I'd highly recommend it and don't know anybod…

  • Glad to hear the recovery is on track MsE!

  • MsE said: SJ, if you did sign up for VLM 2018, would you also just rock up on the day for that? Yep
