For anyone trying to crack the 3h15 barrier anywhere in the world
Bike It - Looking forward to your race report already!
RJ,FW & SJ - Heres hoping the weather behaves and quite envious to be honest! Have a good one!
Best of luck to Fraser, Sloaky, Keith and of course RJ in you know where this Sunday. For goodness sakes KINAVIT!!
Got a mental picture of you Fraser wlaking into work pulling a suitcase (albeit small) packed with carbs. Have you got your race morning “exit stratergy” planned after all those carbs>
Great photos and race report MsE. Love the race pci of you chicking that guy. Racing in leggin's like that in a bit of heat is questionable, espically when someone is running naked?
Love the spreadsheet Minni - good bit of work there.
Is there a list on here to get some target races on?
3 mile Club track handicap race tonight, hope it cools down a bit before 7.30!
Sweet potato sarnies with beetroot relish? Now that is what I call dedicated carb loading!
8M in the midday sun for me at a plodtastic 8.18m/m. Still, it means I can go to the pub tonight

Just a four mile plod for me at lunch time at 8.30 pace, beat that!
track with paces of 16:06, 15:39 and 16:27 for the recoveries
and 3x1000 in 3:30 for the fast bits. Very hot and had to abort on a planned 4th
Best of luck to the Edinburgh Crew! Piss on those chips!
I should add that 8.18m/m felt like I was working hard enough to be flitting along at 7.45m/m or thereabouts. Bliddy heat!
MsE: "piss on those chips"?!
Actually the heat's not too much of an issue today. The edge is more than taken off it by the howling gale!
I ran 6 miles in the heat this PM. Well, as close as we get to heat in the North-East. Then I filled my belly with burnt barbie food and bottles of bud. Now thats what I call ideal race prep foe the Sheffield Half on Sunday- not a beetroot in sight.
RJ, SJ, Fraser - may the road rise before you and the wind be always at your back. Good luck boys, do yourselves, and us, proud.
All the best to the Edinburgh crew.
No IM yet, Minni. I want to get some decent run times in before I compromise running with tri training. Am down for a sprint tri with school mums (moms) in a couple of weeks but not unduly worried about that (ie not done any swimming or cycling YET!)
Does anyone know if beetroot tablets are as effective as the juice? And do you take them all the time or just near race date? Sorry if this has all been covered before. Bit out of the loop being in a different time zone.
MsE great pics,well some of them, face on that guy,wtf chicked again.
Fraser great looking target, know you will smash it good luck.
SJ best of luck you deserve to reach your time too, have a great race.
RJ read your blog, a great read nothing more you can do but "give it some welly" best of luck.
Bike it good luck too it will be amazing...
OO, LIke your race pre for Sheffielf Half .
MsE, as far as I know, to get the benefit from beetroot juice it needs to be taken regularly, rather than just 250ml the day before if you get my drift. Most studied suggest a daily dose.
3 mile Club handicap tonight in 18.00 on the nose #frustrated. Was hoping for a 17.xx time, but with a bit of over taking/heat/strong wind on the back straight, I guess I wasn't far off. Managed to get 2 gongs too for 3rd male & fastest male.Weird thing was the Garmin as it came out at 3.10 miles at an av pace of 5.48 (nice!). But we all know Garmins don't like tracks and sharp corners.
