Bugger - now got two emails from 'firstname.lastname@example.org' saying 'congratulations on entering the ballot' - even though I only got one confirmation page with number from their website. I had to press 'submit' twice to get it to go through (or else I was just impatient). That probably renders both of them null and void, but can't re-enter as that will definitely wipe it out.
Thank you. Interesting that you say a wet bra doesn't cause you problems. Will have to try it out when I start combining the elements of my training. Still focussing on individual components so far. Will bike to my pool, swim then run back (wrong order I know but combines commuting to/from pool with the training!)
I too have a couple of good bike shops (might leave the likes of Halfords!) so will pay them a visit. Thanks for input.
I am new to triathlon, but individual elements of training going well. I have two questions.
Firstly is the integral bra within some trisuits sufficient for the run (I am quite busty and my recent measurement for a Berlei sports bra suggested I was a 38DD - quite a shock). I don't really want to wear a sports bra swimming and then have it wet, cold and chafing for the bike/run section. Likewise, don't really want to be having to add it (not very discretely) during a transition. Any thoughts?
Also, currently only training on exercise bike as don't even own a bike, given up to rust many years ago. I know the postures are very different, so do need to start doing outdoor training. I also know that racing/road bike different from special triathlon bike, but don't really want to be spending a fortune. Should I just go for a road bike and alter seat angle/get handlebar adjustments. Any ideas where to get good 2nd hand/cheap new bikes. Thanks
