Stuff yerself on the bike I say

just had my wibble!  I thought i'd better check that my mini bike pump works. Bl**dy hell, they are sh*t, it took me ages to get the tyre inflated. I suppose it's too late to learn how to use co2 canisters?!

Jack be confident in what you have tried up until now, no sudden changes and that especially relates to food
Try something new on race day is a good old pirate tradition but dont try it with food

I'll be having porridge and bannanas. Whatever my manservant prepares for me.

Silverstone PS? Surely Dorney is the only place to have a lake that big?

Strong coffee, really really strong and some bread and jam at 4am Race Day. Time enough for it to settle in stomach and then enough time to get all my stuff together and panic!!

C02 is easy, if you buy a inflator that protects your fingers...
Otherwise they will stick to the cannister when it goes to -15 when the tyre goes whoosh

Buy some extra cash and practise the night before

As meldy says its good to try something new on race day

It's a must for anything longer than oly distance for me too and take some pain killers in a zip lock bag for the run
28/06/2012 at 08:47

It's OK, I've already sorted my painkiller strategy!! I need them for the bike once the distances get above about 75 miles (depending on the hills)!  

I have 2 ibuprofen and 1 paracetamol for the bike in my bento box, and I will probably take the same in my belt for the run!!

all this talk of immodium and tablets..................just a reminder it probably not the best time to start experimenting with new drugs..............

if you have raced shorter distances and trained without the need for immodium i wouldn't start now................

for those who have discovered in the past that they have problems then fine................its a sensible addition.........

also painkillers........take what you would normally take on your long rides...........and if you never need them in the past them just maybe take a few mild ones just incase...........

use of drugs when you don't need them isn't recommended...............but for some of us they are sadly needed for the long races

28/06/2012 at 09:00

No thanks! Ibuprofen and paracetamol taken at the same time supposedly have better painkilling properties than many of the stronger painkillers. I know I'm OK with this combination.

I don't know what the side effects of using diclofenac are likely to be, even though I was prescribed it when I had my knee "fixed".

28/06/2012 at 09:02

I'm going straight for the EPO option.

28/06/2012 at 09:05

The immodium is purely for security. Hoping I won't need it. A couple of years ago I finished Bala not knowing which way my stomach wanted to explode first!! I'd rather not go through that again!

Does taping help with anyone's injuries?

Not with mine, my problem is with impact on the joint not stability!
