One of my lad’s ex dance teachers died yesterday. She was late 30s, I think. You’ll have seen on tv at some point, even though you wouldn’t know her. Thing is, she was the most fiercely athletic woman I’ve ever met in my life; an absolute machine.

I think the thing that’s particularly difficult about cancer is the way that there are people who have obviously increased risk: smokers; drinkers; particular industries etc; but then it just takes people who are, apparently, the image of perfect health. It’s really hard to rationalise.

RIP Teneisha.

If it helps, BITD B@stard linked to something relevant.

Not kept up on responses to etc, but as I said at the time, this is a big hitter writing.


Edit: the link is broken, so an updated post-crit. view of the same arguments from the same authors.

There’s a woman who’s a cancer survivor who is currently swimming the Channel four times in a row. First time it’s ever been attempted, by a man or woman.

Apparently she’s currently on the fourth leg, having started at midnight on Saturday. Over forty hours in the water and she’s allowed ten minutes on land between legs.

Fucking fuck me. :shock:

That's seriously impressive! But...

I find this kind of thing depressing knowing how much walking 30 miles fucked me up (and knowing it'd be far worse now).

Apparently she’s got issues with the tide. Not what you need this time of night.

I get that she could wee as she’s going, but how do you get through 50-odd hours without dropping the kids at the pool?

She was allowed 10 minutes on land at the end of each leg, hope she used the time wisely

Apparently the combination of salt water and energy shakes gave her something of an upset stomach. I suspect it may have been more of a fine mist than a log problem.

I've been close a couple of times. If I can't complete my morning evacuation before running now I use the gift of Imodium.

Imodium aren't bad, but I can never get enough up there to fully block my hoop.

Just seen the report on the ITN, fucking hell the original 84 miles was a massive task but due to tides it turned to 130 miles.

The human spirit eh? :salute:

Good job no Japanese whaling ships were passing when her mate rolled into the sea mind.
