Weather looking good for weekend if a tad windy, at least it'll be dry and getting hotter

Ill be coming down but not for the swim, im planning getting there very early sunday morning and just doing laps of the bike course until the last person finishes the bike or i cant take no more, which ever comes first then i'll do a few miles on the run

what time are you starting the swim?

The swim starts at 10 o'clock when the leisure centre opens, are you dropping your car at ours? what time are you thinking about getting there, I'm up around 6 in the morning on Sunday

Slag, everyone is better on the run than you  

would argue that i was a slightly better runner than you last year Razor  ... i accept that now you are off the sticks you might have the edge.  

You've not seen me run yet! I'm hoping it won't be tooo late when i finish the run on Sunday, i've got to drive home after, hahaha. That said, i'm only doing the run..... I could  run on Sat if that helps with the supporting side? Can see what suits best once i'm down. Or rather up. Can't wait to see everyone

I wouldn't normally do a full change in transition but seeing as it more of a training weekend I think ill make myself a bit more comfortable for the bike and put a pair of cycling shorts on.  And no one laugh when in struggling to put on my Jersey!

Last year I did a full change (in the changing rooms, not T1)(needed a 20p for the locker)

Swam in my normal swim shorts and changed in to my tri shorts and tri top for the bike/run. Total faff trying to get in to my tri top, even after towelling down.

I think I have just abouit packed everything into one car.......(obviously haven't packed the kids yet.).....

so as long as the cycle carriers fits on right tomorrow and the bikes fit on it then we will be up in one car...makes it a bit more awkward and less storage room......but still says a fortune in petrol and will be nice to travel together

i'm all packed too, just the bike and a few bits to chuck in car tomorrow morning.

Wife's just bought be back some cycling goodies from Aldi as well as a load of bannanas and jaffa cakes to help stock the feed station.

The feed station is going to be overstocked, we have 2 people bring 60 gels each, there are a load of mini malt loafs on the way and some mix for High 5, plus sausage and bacon for afters.

parking shouldn't be a problem

ill be down about 6am Q and park outside yours. fancy a quick 50 miler before they start? Buxton looks like a nice little ride to do before everyone gets on the bike course

I can't find my tri shorts so I'll be getting changed after the swim.  

With Friday night traffic I think I might be quite late but I'll find my way to the pub I'm sure.

I'll be up, checking work,, fancy a brew before your set off?

Macc to Buxton is a great ride, lost count the amount of times I did it training for IM wales

I might stick the feed station with fig rolls!  I love them and they boost morale.  It's been scientifically proven.  Was panicking about food but it sounds like its going to be like a BBQ where everyone brings too much!

Just got back from working away for the week, haven't unpacked the car to even think about packing it back up yet, that can wait til the morning. Looking forward to it, weather looks great

Morning. I'm going to be arriving very late - maybe 10pm as Mr Soup needs the car until at least 5 or 6pm.

But I'm really looking forward to the weekend.
