The Clydesdale Masters

I've been training with the Childline Challenge in mind for a week or so now. My brother John has signed up as well, so we have started a triathblog as a training diary and all purpose venue to keep our spirits up over the next few months. We'd be delighted to have Dave or any of the two Robs join us as authors there. I also had the dynamite notion last night that CDH, who has set his face against participating on account of having more mass to drag round than anyone else, could take part by cycling and swimming but leaving out the concluding run. I put this to him last night and I think I'm beginning to see a chink in his armour.

Googling around the subject of triathlons, I've been pleasantly surprised that I am in the Masters as opposed to Open category simply by being 40+. John not yet master ...... Wax on, right hand. Wax off, left hand. Wax on, wax off.....

Even more encouragingly there is a Clydesdale weight category for triathletes who weigh more than 200lbs. I'll have to bulk up to get into that, supplementing my programme with Brains Daaark and Claaark's pies.
