Yikes just figured out that to hit racing weight I need to loose more than 1lb per week between now and then! Best acutally start my diet now then!

Puts share pack of crispy M&M's back in drawer, Ok it's nearly empty now but the thought is there.

Hope the bar doesn't run out of beer and the canteen doesn't run out of breakfast again!!

How late is the bar open on the Sunday? not sure I'll be wanting a beer at that point but you never know. Sure my supporters will.

Good ride today in the sunshine. Riding back from the in laws realised I didn't have my iPhone. Rode back...nowhere to be seen. I had it in an arm case strapped to the bike. Rode back the way I came... Nothing visible. To top it off I rucked it at a set off traffic lights getting my left foot out of the clip, ankle now in pain. Drove back twice to check for phone...nothing. Tried find my iPhone but showing as offline so no signal wherever it is. That's the second iPhones have lost first was on a golf course. Crap day, Nice weather though

Rafi.....of course.i'm booked until the Tuesday.why on earth do all that hard work and not stay to celebrate

Eric.........

last june I did the double and so was up for 2 nights.got to bed around 2:30 on the second night and then got 4 hours sleep before breakfast..........then had to pack a soaking wet large tent and all the mess from the previous few days as my teenage son hadn't had time to tidy and crew all weekend for me.........we stayed for an awards ceremony and then I had to drive back a hundred odd miles......

when i had got to bed I couldn't actually sit up or sit down without help as my quads had seized...but they did get better through the day.

Blue Peter... We have all done it (ie not unclipped and come a cropper)!

I'm in my downsized mini-mini-bago so will be hooked up for the weekend. All booked and sorted. I'm rather glad it's an easy bike course as I still haven't done any bike training! CBA in this weather to get out there! Yep, I know, poor attitude.

PSC its a relativly easy fast bike course if the winds not blowing as in 2010, but Last year there was a bit of wind and it was much tougher that course could be a pig with a decent windy day

Just did my first full swim of 2.4miles. Managed 1hr 27min before they kicked me out. Any thoughts on how this relates to times in open water with a wetsuit. Ballbagged now!

Ozzy
Its well within the cut off so thats the main thing
In my experience it should be a lot quicker on the day cos
A wetsuit sorts out all them body position problems
You dont waste time turning every 25m
You will be rested and fired up come race day
You can draft people
All the above come with the big disclaimer that you do OW swims before race day or as some peeps have found it ends in a hyperventalating panic induced DNF
