Yes, the weather looks better, I've bought a new hat for the occasion. I've done all the training I can so just hope luck is on my side and I can make it to the finish line in one piece. I'm catching a flight to Zante early Tuesday morning for a well earned rest and will get a right bollocking if I turn up broken!
This years training stats, Swim 80 miles, Bike 3436 miles, Run 1065 miles, 400hours total training. (Fetch is great for these stats)
The bets are off but if I'm anywhere near Slokey towards the end of the race then I would have had a blinder!
It was nice jumping in the local lake yesterday evening for a couple of laps, although I did sweat my knackers off squeezing into the wetsuit. Tbh I felt a bit of a wimp as most were just in swimsuits.
A bike run brick session this morning and the legs are starting to feel nice and strong, it's amazing what a taper can do.
I like to use the local bike shops when after a new bike. When I bought my TT bike (Specialize Shiv) I had a retul bike fit first to find the best geometry bike to suit me. It does work out more expensive but I think comfort on the bike is so important. 120 miles (6 hours) in an aero postion is pretty comfortable, so for me its worth the extra expense rather than taking a punt on the intetnet.
