For a shoe that's £135 at full price I'm not surprised there's not many to be found cheap Everyone who likes them will be on the look out for them at reduced prices.
The 17 has been around for a few months now so I would imagine any stock of older models will be increasingly limited to less popular sizes.
However, unlike IM France, I believe the Ch'Tri bike route is fairly flat but exposed and potentially windy. Haven't done it but I think the IMCH bike route includes a couple of climbs.
As for the swim, if French rowing lakes are anything like English ones, Lake Zurich would be more pleasant experience.
I think FB and Petal have done one of the Ch'tri events so may be able to provide an accurate comparison.
Well, hats off to her, she finished in 07:07:03
Looks like she ran the first 10k then tottered the rest. Makes me wince just thinking about what state her feet must be in
I've done a couple of short OW sessions. Warm enough that fingers and toes didn't go numb but a little too chilly to do more than 30-40 mins.
However, this weekend has been a mojo free zone. Watching tri on the red button trying to psyche myself into going for a little run at least.
Looks like someone else in the same boat is thinking of doing this instead
