Went for my first swim in 6 months this morning. Suspect I may have achy shoulders tomorrow
I don't listen to radio 2, cause I'm not olde enough
has anyone got a short sleeve cycle jersey i could purchase/borrow for the bike? i need something to stick out as a pirate so people do not wonder who i am when i turn up to the feed station. got myself a visor and race cap so the run is sorted. Cheers
Ozzy.....I have a short sleeve cycle jersey.......medium i believe that i can bring along.....
I will be racing in my monaco
Yes please seren if possible. Thanks. Ill rinse it in the lake before I give it back. Don't worry, I don't need urine covered shorts, cheers
Hows everyone getting on with the training? Did a 100mile TT at the weekend in high wind and horrible rain. Never been as cold in my life. Longest solo ride I have ever done.
did a tri on the weekend ....the wind was scary..which made the rain worse.the hills were the worst i have ever climbed.and now I need to recover enough for a 10 mile TT tomnorrow..off for a game of squash to unwind teh legs
Anyone on here got a GPS for the half bike route that can be loaded to garmin?
First tri since IM Wales 2011 and my only tri before the Outlaw completed at Keswick at the weekend. Endurance is lacking but my Pirate kit which has spent 18 months in a drawer with the labels still attached was spot on and definitely got me extra support on the course.
Training currently on hold thanks to a bout of the sqwits doing the rounds. Lucky me!
6 weeks to go...?
I'd better start my outlaw training.... in a week or so.
OC.you starting the sand bagging early
Well I have done no outlaw training whatsoever.
(I have spent the last 5 months training for lanza though - but I don't think that counts )
Excellent training day on Saturday, 2.4 open water swim, 112 miles on the bike and a rather long 26 mile run
waiting for the Summer to role aound may be a mistake
I thought summer was on that first bank holiday in May?
Going up to do a recce this weekend. Running a couple of laps of the run course tomorrow and cycling the course on Sunday. Planning on a load of beer Saturday night to make Sunday more interesting!
I'm off the list folks. Not such a tough call. I'm simply not ready. To busy at work and carrying an injury therefore not enough training. With two IM done already I knew what had to be done and didn't do it. Never mind, there's always next year! Will be out on the course supporting. Or, if someone is still looking for relay bikers I am up for that.
PSC.....will be glad of the extra support on the course but sorry to see you won't be doing it.......
psc , I'm not ready either but I respect what must be a very tough decision, we all need your support and there's always next year.........
