In 2009 (my Lanza) year, they extended the bike cut off by an hour it was so windy. I didn't know that when I was out there and with typical IM brain mush on, couldn't work out if I'd made the original cut off or not - thankfully, I didn't need the extra hour in the end. I gather the run is slightly different now - I hope they have taken out some of the need to go up and down curbs that are about a foot high - high enough under normal circs, but North Face of the Eiger style at the end of an IM. IT's amazing how a run that is essentially along the coast can manage to have hills in it, isn't it? Well done Holgs - not an easy day out, is it? Perhaps you should do some novelty events now - they'll seem like a walk in the park.

What, not tempted to do a novelty event? But they are the best!

I thought the Outlaw was a novelty event ?

There's still a couple of curbs to navigate.

Certainly isn't an easy day out, but it's a very rewarding one.

I don't do novelty events, have warned Viking that if he enters me into one for my 40th this year, he will be doing the Fred Whitton next year. I can see why people enjoy them, but I hated Hellrunner and have no desire to do another one.

Swim session for me.

Excellent 20 miles out and about over the marshes, Loads of wildlife, Herons, buzzards, and I think from the flash a kingfisher, and all in the name of training

Sounds delightful.

Nice recovery swim set last night, although I didn't enjoy the 50m of float leg kick

25/05/2012 at 10:45

Didn't seem like training !

Plan for Sunday is wales and back on the Trek, around 60 miles, and then having left it set up in the garage up and over Helby and Frodsham hills on the Cervélo for another 25 miles... Thent he Giro on TV

Might remember to watch some book awards on the TV tonight, see if anyone famous is on

How did the ride go?

Thanks, and thanks to TLS.

Good, I did 59 on the Trek, but had left the TT bike set up ready in the garage, Jumped straight from one to the other and did another 42 on the Cervélo.

Struggled over the last 10 miles on the run back as only one bottle cage on the TT, I was gasping a bit by the time I was home.

Watched the Giro on tv whilst re-hydrating, and then got out cutting the grass at the front.  Suppose I should have run, But was over heated by the time I got in. Suppose I was a bit silly, Did all that on 3 bidons of water and 2 gels. 

Did it in 5hrs 45 so happy enough with the time

Bloody good time that for 101 miles, you are in fine form heading into the Outlaw.
