    Mook, Billy & Torino all seem to have established the eating side of things, have you got any recipes you can share for those of us more nutritionally challenged. Our diet has become a bit haphazard of late and could do with some new ideas. Quite happy to prep on a Sunday for the week probably makes more sense as it's always difficult to fit food around exercise if you have to start from scratch. Not sure tyresmoke is entirely appropriate forum name now that we all seem more preoccupied with diet and exercise than card at present

    Not sure. Haven't renewed my Tri club membership this year and in reality I've done SFA for the last 15 months. I'd like to do another IM but it would end in divorce so going to put that off for now. Have started training again and motivation is good have done 8 turbo sessions this year. Yes I know that it's only the 10th! It feels really good to be back in that training zone and itching to do a workout. They have always felt like a chore of late, so to have that drive back means I might be ready to do something. My shoulder is there or there abouts after it got wrecked at Tenby now too. The other down side is that they are so expensive. Will enter something this year, not sure what. Fancied doing a SUP, MTB & trail run but they are in too far away just for a jolly. How about you still aiming to be top of the obstacle course race podium or have you gone back to triathlon.

    I know lots of people who have had great success with slimming world. A coleague has been on it for around 6 months and has lost 3 stone and my sister in law is 2 weeks in to slimming world and 7lb lighter. Seems to be a good balance of being able to eat "free" food so you aren't hungry and also treats with your sins. Fry light is horrible though. How much do you want to lose?

    What's your current 10K time? I have been trying out zwift on the turbo trainer this year which makes a spiteful bit of kit vaguely bareable. The indoor rower is even worse for mind and body torture. Has the seat got any more comfortable over the years? I seem to remember there is a digital rowing program, does that come with plans to achieve certain goals? In the end though I guess it's building until <2 mins/500m splits is your sweetspot and maintaining a constant pace. Do either 10k training plans or cycling workouts transfer well to the rower, if there are no rowing specific plans? I have a concept 2 in the garage next to the turbo. Set them both up on New Years Eve. Chance of me getting on the rower though is slim to none.

    Would like to achieve a sub 20 min 5K time. Before the arrival of our second child in September I was at 21:30. I have done no exercise since then, so think it will probably take around six months to achieve. This means I might just manage it before the big 40.

    Red GTS looks amazing what a great choice.

    Not at all surprised it went so quickly

    What a great looking car. Someone is going to get a good deal.

    Mrs Andrew clearly has been taking packing lessons from Mrs Drinks. We had a Passat and roof box on many holidays. Admittedly we also have a hound taking up valuable boot space. The bigger the car the more you take, there is only so much stuff you need though try telling her that! Now we have a VW transporter I hope that's big enough, at least for now.

    Passat is much bigger in terms of rear seat space and boot space. Which I'm guessing is important here.

    Sorry, I meant which model of Passat did Andrew try yesterday?
  12. Tut...Tut...Tut...

    The new model or the "old" one? I've recently sold our 62 plate one and it was great in a practical way but oh so dull.

    I've been in my new to me T5 transporter kombi for two weeks today. It's ace. What are you looking at?

    Great stuff, a brilliant achievement.

    It's the training that's the tough bit. The different disciplines mix it up a bit but you are still out early and or late everyday with one rest day a week for months. The race is actually surprisingly "easy" in that it's all about reaping the reward. I did just get round the marathon course, I was never out of breath or exerting myself. I think if I was going for a time then it would be a whole different experience.
