Who's in for a festival of pain, chips, beer and ice cream?
Just wondered who else is heading to Tenby next weekend, and whether there's scope to catch up for a Recovery Pint or two? In time-honoured fashion, I shall start a list !
We're staying at a place called Rowston Park, just north of town.
Hope, what are you planning on doing?
I am booked for the swim and 112 mile bike. Thinking of dropping the bike distance down to the 70.
I have a very similar view of the bike. My sensible head says go out for 8 hours, try and keep HR down on the hills and and forget about speed and distance.
My 'fish and chips' head says try and hang on to do the distance.
Muffin I just had a chat to a friend who's a lot more sensible than me when it comes to planning training. I was told it's 'daft' to do the full bike so close to the Outlaw as the course is so mad, so I'm going to drop to the 72 too.
I sometimes have to trust others judgement more than my own.
The Outlaw I hear is pretty flat, so killing myself on hills is a bit unnecessary I guess. I'm still having my Fish and Chips though!
I am so glad to see you write that Hope
Thanks Melds. I sometimes need telling!
Weather forecast for Friday night's swim; "Very windy with coastal gales and rain on Friday, this probably clearing to drier weather with lighter winds on Saturday".http://www.bbc.co.uk/weather/2636104
Forecast for Saturday looks lovely though.
Swimming on the spot, I think I looked at the same shell on the bottom for 20 minutes before I realsied what was going on.
As to too soon for the Outalw, it's almost a month away!
another one to join the gang- I'm in for the fully Monty and will be travelling back on Monday so scope for some beering at some point. Back to the delights of Kiln Park.
have a great weekend down there............the swim will probably be back at the other beach i would have thought so no excuses...have fun
Suddenly developing pre event paranoia. So far have been distcrated with the logistics of a family camping trip to Tenby.
The sea will be swell.
Hindsight is wonderful.........perhaps I should have looked at the course profile before Slower booked me in. Defo dropping to the 72 miler but will start anyway at the 8am, 112 m time.
Met Office inshore waters forecast for Bristol Channel on Friday;
Wind; Southeast 5 or 6 veering west or southwest 7 to severe gale 9.Sea State; Moderate or rough, becoming very rough.Weather; Rain or squally showers.Visibility; Moderate, occasionally poor.
Those of you who "enjoyed" IM Wales last year are probably enjoying a stroll down Memory Lane right now.
I think I can hear some funny noises from my car too, Hope. Unless it's just me crying like a baby?
Fingers crossed Hope. If you are pushed for time, do you want me to try and register for you?
Oh that would be good.Can you PM me you mobile number?We can do fish and chips in Frog Street if you like
Even if I don't make the swim I'll still come and do the rest. Apparently I won't get a time but at least I'll get my long bike in on an interesting course.I'm a bit bored of my usual routes now!
