    There's a piece about Nick on the guardian. Really tragic.

    That's awful. RIP Nick. Are you okay?

    I have a picture of me running past the cathedral but I can't seem to upload it. I actually look like I'm running so it must be early on.

    Time = slow! Distance = middle.
    The swim was entirely upstream but really nice and very pretty. The bike was literally the least enjoyable time I've ever spent on a bike, the fens were at their windy best. The run was pretty, went past the cathedral 5 times.

    Toe gloves creep me out. Foot mittens all the way.

    I've accepted that my feet will blister regardless and now choose socks based on how garish they are. The 1000 mile double layer ones are my favourites of the non-garish socks.

    Highlight of yesterday's race - my mum thought the run was 4 laps instead of 5 (to be fair, so did I, I was seriously pissed off when I did the maths on lap 3) and when she couldn't find me in the finish zone after lap 4 she sent out the marshals out looking for me - so they were all radioing each other with my position. Thanks mum.

    Other choice dad quotes -

    On track cycling: "did you know that the sprint races are actually very tactical?"
    On athletics: "did you know that to win, it's where your body crosses the finish line, so you can throw yourself across the line?"
    Also, all the other countries are cheating and Mo Farah is totally clean lolololol.

    I'm watching it, muted, with my parents. None of us know what's going on.

    Dad has gorged himself on the Olympics and now proclaims to know everything there is to know about most sports, particularly track cycling - "did you know" he said, "that it's extremely hard to even get the bike moving in the first place?"
    Yeah thanks dad.
