Cat - the Duathlon was 'The Devils Duathlon', organised by the Tri20 peeps. it was over Mortimer way and jolly good fun.


Btw - they do the Gut Buster 10k on Dec 30th in the same place if you're about ?

Get you Meldy!

I thought about the du, but trying to save some pennies as next season will be expensive.

The 10k fits in with the training plan for Wokingham. What is the surface like? Can't be dealing with thick mud.

I think it's road with a trip through a ford if you're feeling brave - though there is a footbridge if you want your feet to stay dry

I did theSummer version of the gutbuster....it was very muddy in July. I marghalled on the winter one last year - its VERY muddy! But fun.....sort of.

No PB today M..eldy, that was last weekend! Had a heavy running week, so was using today more as a pacing exercise - hit just above marathon pace.

Interesting Spoons. Not heard about that before & Simons a fellow TriAnglian, he organised our club relay teams this year.

He also runs Paradise Tri http://www.paradise-tri-training.co.uk/about.htm

Day after my birthday but a week before IMUK so doubt i'll be doing it.

Excellent run TB

Well done TB, cracking time.

Re the lesson, you can`t put time in the bank in the first half of a marathon, always comes back to get you. For every minute you go through half way too fast, you lose 2-3mins in the second half.
