Good training all. Not convinced spring is here yet but I live in hope!

There's a new post on my Ironman Wales blog called Return of the Bling, have a look.

CT that sounds like pure murder in the cold, I've ordered some clip Ons... Only thing between me and the perfect aero position is 20 yrs of playing in the front row and the Guinness fuel tank which is ever shrinking but still in the way!

I must confess I don't have that problem; if I waved a large piece of material above my head at a rugby match I'd probably be mistaken for the corner flag pole!

Maxifuel Marlow Half Ironman on 14th July http://www.f3events.co.uk/general/maxifuel-half-iron-distance-triathlon-marlow

Perfect timing as is the Windsor Olympic race on 16 June, I think this is full.  The planets are aligned.

Good to hear that the road surfaces have improved.

 

Hoping to sneak down there early one Saturday/Sunday morning to remind myself of the course, and try it out on the TT bike before I make a decision on gearing etc.  Might swap to a compact, or try out the WiFli option.  BE good to have a nice easy gear to spin up the hills, especially at the end of lap two.

What did you do it on last year & what gearing out of interest?
