try this. glad you all had a good time.
Great fun. I got 16.87km or something like that, so 10 1/2 miles
Soo glad i bought some trail shoes as they drained in about 2 seconds flat. I could tell who was wearing road shoes from the 'shloop shloop' noise they made after any water hazards. Compared to the Cardiac Arrest I found the XZone to be a bit tame although i went headfirst into the bog at the end. Twice. should look goods in the photos
Well done everyone
I actually ached from shivering before the start more than I did afterwards.... it was pis$ing down ... take large flask of coffee, food for afterwards, towels, lots of warm clothes......sorry - i am probably putting you off here! We took a huge catering box of mince pies last time
i would suggest (from experience) not wearing leggings (made me colder) and definitely wear wicking stuff - you see people with sodden cotton t-shirts that must be a so heavy and cold.
tested my Turbo-X shirt today in the pouring rain at lunchtime - was great - coudl wring it out afterwards - legs were just a little stiff though
Thanks for the advice Andrew. I take it you will be doing the Sunday race. Hey Debbie, see you there. How did you get on last Sunday?
