T-minus 48 hours

Apparently a haiku is known to help calm the nerves.

austin’s stomach splurts vomit 
but we still believe

In the wake of the 48 hours-to-go mark, some nerves certainly need calming. Austin has picked up a stomach bug and is unable to keep any food down. This is less than ideal in carb-loading week (the rest of the team are currently eating their way towards an extra kilo in bodyweight).

Let us not forget that T has a gammy knee either. He has had to recently endure some especially painful sports massage from an over-exhuberent male physiotherapist. Poor T.

And how could a good old British rant be complete without a mention of the weather?! Without going in to too much detail, let us just say the weather forecast for this week is unbelievably diabolical. Unsurprisingly the French have waved the white flag to the approaching British weather front and alas, Paris too is destined for heavy rain.

Everything will be OK though, it always is, right?
