Cheers for that Slokey. I figure that if I focus on the logistics then I can forget about the actual race thingy.
Just started to warm up here in London - sort of hoping that Nottingham doesn't get all of this next w/e.
Does anyone know if the organisers lay on food & drink for the finishers? And is it easy for supporters to meet up with the finishers afterwards? Ta.

I'm another who is going for the change in tent during transition thing. Deciding on my kit choices is worrying me more than the actual event. I hope black is still in fashion this year.
Do some longer bike sessions (so that you know you can do up to 25 miles at a consistent pace)
Do a few brick sessions (bike then run) to see how your legs feel at the end of a cycle
Get comfortable in the open water - don't worry too much about losing a few minutes here from your expected pace, save the energy for the bike & run.
If you can get someone to watch you swimming and maybe tweak a little bit of your technique (not completely overhaul it - just focus on sighting, for instance) then that might be useful.
