The Transitions Tri-top got more exposure this week when I was put on a shortlist of the 'best dressed' in the company. I was caught in the lobby on my way to change into my work clothes. This image has been posted on our intranet site for employees to vote on so about 4,000 magazine and website publishing folk are looking at it now.
I hope I win there's a £50 prize.
(sorry about the Rudy Project glasses)

thanks for demand
it could be better...recovery is very slow
on sunday I tried the first tour on bike...but, after one hour my knee looked like a water melon..puh
so I have to change my goal ( a little ;-))...the challenge is: to train without pain and to stay in
the otit team
training impossible...but publicity for Transition and Oakley
the very special transition lenses..not only for outdoor sports :-)

If you get the chance it is well worth swimming in your wetsuit to see the difference in buoyancy( good) but also in the restriction of movement( bad).
One of the guys there also said you should change your technique in a wetsuit to reach more. My wetsuit is 10 years old, I don't think I have changed shape that much but the suit may have lost some flexibility. Does anyone know anything about swimming wetsuits?
I must admit I was blown away by the scene. It was a fabulous sunny evening with the sun shining on the water. I've suddenly decided that swimming isn't so bad after all.

On Sunday I had another four hour ride starting at 6 0'clock in the morning. The brids were out: pheasants, jays and woodpeckers. The lambs were frollicking in the fields, I saw some deer and what the hell's that? A white rabbit crossing the road!
At least it wasn't six foot tall ( and called Harvey).
What a great ride; 3 hours 55 and 109km including a few hills average heart rate 119.
I have found a magic formula for food.
On the bike:
1ltr of water and 0.5lt of power drink ( High 5)
1 peanut butter sandwich
1 handful of raisins
After 0.5hrs -- start drinking water, then continue as you see fit
1hr eat banana
2hrs eat peanut butter sandwich
2.5 -3hrs start on the power drink
3-3.5hr raisins and last of the water

Yesterday I saw the accident of Uwa , and i think, i have to have becarefull with the bike, is dangerous..., and today, i can´t believe!!! i have had and accident also!! I don´t see a stone in the road and i went out of the road. NO problem, I´m ok, was a fall in the field, I went away out of the highway, lucky for me, blows for all body, back, head (with helmet ofcourse), arms.., but only I have a litle pain in my neck. The bike is ok, is neccesary adjust, but i think is no a problem. My MP3 is dead..., 1 minute of silence please..., and my Oakley Sunglases (the firts, the best for
