oh chilli if you can hang around for a bit my brother might need a few hours kip if you could stand in for him - nothing too demanding, a bloke that was meant to be crewing for my 100 miler was also meant to be helping with this but he was a waste of time.
is anyone else coming to support/throw food at me ?
going pretty well tbh chilli , i got in a few long rides, topped out at 130 - it was a hard 130 though, running is pretty solid even if it is a lot slower than what i used to train for, can blame the ultras for that, but on the upside i can run for fecking miles, maybe not after a 232mile bike though. all good endurance.Biked though the night a couple of times,
i ran in the night loads last year and still a few times this year for it to be comfortable/normalised. My swimming is the usual controlled drowning so im not expecting anything too quick there. I have realistically changed what i think im capable of in light of the lack of focused training and will be happy with a 34ish time. A single ironman has a 17 hour cutoff so if i can do double that for double the distance i will chuffed, anything over 36 i wont be so glad.
im quite looking forward to the weeks following tbh, my first 100 miler is a huge milestone for me and to revisit the outlaw will be cool and the thunder run will be an attempt to improve on 100 miles in 24 hours but weather is going to play a hand in that. Next year is going to be mental
