what is the chances of a first timer doing 17hrs actually being fit to drive home sunday night? Should I camp sunday night too?? I can take work clothes and shower at work assuming I can move to drive that is.
EP - I imagine you will be shattered and in need of a rest! Camp on the Sunday and hope you can drive to work in the morning.
i keep reading about people need drips and this is also a worry!!
Brit - seeing as I can't run now, I can't imagine being able to work up to marathon distance from nothing in the time there is, and want to give trogs and happychap time to find someone else
EP...for most first timers i think it would be hard tp drive home as they do not know how their bodies will react.......
that said a lot will find it hard to drive the next morning as they will have stiffened up by then.......
i would advise all first timers to have someone else with tyhem to drive home if necessary or to wait until the tuesday.....
some people need drips..others have bad stomach issues after the adrenaline of the day starts to wear off.some have pulled muscles etc and some are just totally fatigued especially if you had poor sleep prior to the race,,,,,,,,
others can get up and do an ironman the next day
brit - yeah, I was supposed to be doing a marathon in April too, not even sure that I will be capable of doing a half mara in April but never mind, still got my sights on outlaw half, so long as I can do the swim and bike then I can walk the run if I have to
Bad news about your knee Maths
Have replied to your message. Don't think relay team members' names need to be confirmed for a while yet, so we can make a plan B so you can see how your knee progresses and you can still join in if it looks good.
Hi all! Hope you're all training well! Over and above the seemingly popular campsite, does anyone have any hotel recommendations? The Premier Inn (London Road) which was my preference is full (and probably has been for a while!). Any convenient alternative options?! Bit late in the day I know!
I think it was The White Swan guest house/B&B down the road that a few people used before, I might have totally made that name up but its something like that
don't blame me
its going toi be a good weekend.only 20 weeks to go
Evening all. Just thought I would drop a line. I'm on the starting list for outlaw. I've been doing triathlon 10 years and it's going to be my first full distance. I thought it would be a good idea to touch base with folk who are going to be in the same predicament me. I'm following finks intermediate program. see you on the start line!
Reporting for duty - and set for training.
Training as fun ends Sunday!
