Sun Sea Sand and celeb spotting.

Postby Messer » 13 Jan 2010 15:37

Well ive finally managed to get an internet connection after 5 1/2 months of f-ing around with the spanish phone companies, what things ive missed changes at the top, ninja stealth giving way to Pink and a new super duper forum.

Everyone who is not blessed with Mr Cs world wide training regime should come and live in lanzarote so far Ive been dropped on the bike by Jenson button riding through lava fields(he didnt know he was riding with me he just went banging on by.) ive had my swimming shown up by a local 5 foot nothing girl who swims like a fish and ive been destroyed by almost everybody running through the national park.

So since being here ive realised giving up a well paid job to live in a foreign country with your family and no money is very interesting but I have managed to drop 10 kg through lack of food.

There are soo many pro runners cyclists and Tri guys and guyesses knocking about its amazing see just how fast and hard some of these guys train and race.

O well thats enough rambling for now must apoligise I dont speak much spanish so i havent spoken to many real people in ages. I´m writing a real ego trippy article about moving here for a localsports company and magazine I plan to mention BCTTTs global domination alot in it when its done i´ll post a link if ya interested.

I'm off to club La Santa this year.... Can't wait. 10 days of everything.

Probably October time I think but that may change. Is it worth me raking my own bike ?

Yep take your own. I'm planning to go back over Christmas and will take mine. They've got Cannondales Six which you can hire for €18 a day and they're good, or for free you can get a cheaper model.

They do a mini triathlon, a duathlon, aquathlon, half marathon, 5k and 10k races throughout the week. All chip timed!!!
