Durhambiker, one of the best reports ive read for a long time. Your determination will get you through next time if nothing else will.So many times as I was reading I was expecting the next sentence to say that youd stopped, yet you kept going.I DNFd my first long distance, I know it wont hold you back.
Well done and good luck.
Enter an event at the 31 week point, something to target, could be a half marathon, duathlon, winter sportive and focus on training for that, then have a week off before starting the 30 weeks?
Agreed work on your weaknesses, strength training, core work, flexibility, get out on your bike (more miles = more smiles).
Ive seen pro's using knicker elastic with numbers stapled to them, maybe that's more stretchy (or they just forgot their tri-belt).I step in, I think its quicker than fiddling to fasten.
961, I hope you got your special needs bag back. It was me who spoke to you just before Car Colston. I took the bag back to transition and was allowed to put it into your post race bag.
