  • I've suffered calf tightness for the last 3 - 4 years. The big discovery was that although the problem may manifest itself in the calf, it's possibly started somewhere else. As captain says, take care of the hamstrings and also the glutes, lower bac…
  • FB - that doesn't sound good.
  • Stuck in plaster for the next 4-6 weeks after breaking the 2nd metatarsal in my right foot. So frustrating not being able to do anything!
  • Would love to catch up but I'm afriad I'm stuck in a plastercast for the next 4 - 5 weeks since I broke my metatarsal and getting around on crutches is not quite so easy... Will see how it goes.
  • Yeah - can be a bit scary if you've had a heavy night and there's a wetsuit hanging in the shower in the morning! Thankfully the wife's also got a wettie now, so she can't complain about where I leave mine! Also, just in case, only rinse in cold w…
  • Nudity isn't allowed, if you're changing from your budgie smugglers in transition!!
  • I knew I'd been doing something wrong all this time. Think I'll give up the swimming, cycling and running and lie on my couch all day drinking beer and eating chips.
  • Hi Snap. Key points in a triathlon: Do listen to the race briefing. In the swim: Trisuit, Goggles, wetsuit (if open water) Do go around the bouys On the bike: Trisuit, your bike, helmet, cycling shoes, bottle of energy drink/electrolyt…
  • I've been running over 10 years and have had a constant blister, also on the ball of  my foot, under the big toe on both feet. I find using Boot's padding strapping tape helps to some degree on the longer runs but other than that have learnt to pu…
  • My first time - wasn't that fun? Finished in 2hrs 11mins. Fantatstically brutal course, billiant mud, great marshals! Thanks BRC!
  • Zilla, me old mucker - how the devil? Downshifters to you too!
  • Looks like the boys are back in town!
  • Be very afraid!!!!!!
  • Be afraid!

  • Sadly, it's best days are behind it... it's been relegated to the winter hack now! No need to be afraid anymore.....
  • I miss my downtube shifters and I am still an infrequent changer. But then, if you're used to using campag, you get used to its infrequent changing...
  • Like one of your mate's postcodes instead?
  • Well done all who finished. I said hello to a couple of yas and a few Aaarrghs on the course! Having had a tough work schedule the last few months, an injury preventing me from running since May and a bout of food poisoning last Sunday wiping me o…
  • PRW - I'm down there anyway next week, so not sure I can be arsed to go that way again to do another ride around there before Vit. If I do, might go mid-July, but won't happen before then. BTW, I know the slightly up-flats around Ipswich well as use…
  • FB - yeah, yeah, yeah... I know what I meant... See you at the Dam!  
  • Good for you PRW! I finished the Little Beaver std tri on Sunday still carrying a slight calf injury which got progressively worse during the run. Hobbling around a little bit for now but hopefull to be properly running again soon. I have Dambus…
  • Well hopefully the snow has all buggered off now and we can get on with our training. Did some useful bike miles over the weekend and was frozen solid most of the time though I can't run at the moment as I have a calf injury - but this is improvi…
  • If I can do it, you can do it. I learnt to swim from zero to 3.8kms in 6 months for IMCH in 2005. Breaststroke will kill your legs for the bike. I still can't breaststroke, but then again I have no need of it. It's irrelevant. Don't worry abou…
  • Good to see a few signed up here. It is a fun event and great for spectators also. I made some silly skool boy errors in 2011 and I'm returning to put right the wrongs.... Yeah, jabs, The lake's a bit pongy when you get in - something like rotte…
  • Not many of us doing this then?  Was it something I said?
  • Well now, having nowhere to train in Essex for what the Lakeland throws at you made this the real challenge. Some of the descents were as evil as the ascents, only for different reasons. Missed my main target of getting to Ambleside by 9pm and arriv…
  • Less than 3 weeks to go.... Did last "long" run on Saturday - 32 miles and about 4000ft of climbing in total with my new Raidlight pack over the North Downs way. Was out for about 7 1/2 - 8 hours. Everything seems to be working fine and thankfully…
  • The event didn't disappoint - did it? Was tough as I recalled from last year, great support and organisation - I was handed all sorts of stuff out on the course: the usual like bananas, jelly babies and jaffa cakes but also hot tea and a slug of bee…
  • You hard man you. Looks like it'll be the same as it was for 3 Forts a few weeks ago. Wet, cold, windy... just the way I like it for a weekend away!
