EP - it is really tough for you so you need to give it a bit of time, do Wild Boar, where you will probably do much better than last year and you will see that you have made progress and feel better about yourself for it.
Then you need to take a good honest look at where you are and what will be achievable for next year - if not the whole thing then I am sure you can rustle up others to relay with you, or aim at really going for the middle distance nexy year to build up speed as well as distance before stepping up to IM again
Just done the Outlaw survey
Well - was it you?
EP youve had a tough time at the outlaw and I see in the other threads some tough love from others.Its good thats youre looking to recognise where things could be improved, and I hope you find it in you to have another go. Youll have learnt a lot from your experience this year and im sure will have the support from us all on here.I dont have time to commit to mentoring people as my work/life if pretty manic but if you want a sounding board to ask questions off-line please pm me any time.

for those of us that didn't do outlaw and won't do the survey - what was the question???
I've not had a mail since the day - I guess if you DNF they drop you off the list
"Were you the athlete who swore at a member of the public at ..........[can't remember place name and can't access survey again]"
I might have been if an idiot stepped out in front of me without looking........but i don't think i did to be honest........but i wouldn't have sworn at someone just at the side of the road clapping me.......everyone was so busy racing why on earth would they swear at anyone unless they did something idiotic and dangerous......
Maybe I did swear at that dog and just can't remember!
some of the motorists we saw speeding along the country lanes near the feed station needed swearing at!!
Does the dog get classified as a 'member of the public'?
Especially th crazy horn guy!
Is Siggy classed as a member of the public at the feed station?
Seren - I was behind you when that motorist tried to turn round!
It was in Orston, I would be doing well to remeber any names of places on the bike course
I'm amazed there was only one (reported) incidence of swearing at the public
Brilliant reports guys Sid, you made me cry
Soz and thankyou!
