Challenge Vichy 2014

Posted: Today at 13:58

Just wondered how everyone was getting on? I'm mulling over this one for my 2nd attempt at an IM race next year. I've yet to finish one so trying to avoid anything too extreme. Does anyone know the cut off times as work is blocking the website.

I've read crashies report and will be careful on the chicane, although my bike is so slow I think I'd be OK anyway.

There a rule in IM  and BTU that you are not allowed to wear anything below the shoulder in the swim  if it's non wetsuit. Not sure if Rocketman will follow that rule or not but definitely worth checking first.

Good luck all Outlaws I am incredibly jealous of the lot of you. Hope you all have a blast.

Are you really a runner...

Judo apparently for me, which is odd as I tend to trip over my own feet and answered that question accordingly!

Training for a shorter Tri

Woo well done SteadyCJ that sounds like a fab prize
MC sounds like you are all set and ready to go on Sunday.
I'm cracking on with training and starting to realise how much fitness I've lost since the beginning of June.
Sat down and tried to work out plans for Ride London last night, I'm now more confident that I will make it to the start but still worried about me and my bike meeting up with Hubby and the car at the finish. If anyone did it last year do you have any tips please?

Sushi for lunch again today, I fear a trend has begun. I also hate to think how much of my life has been spent in Tesco, along with how much of my pay packet has been spent in that shop too.

Must be storage week I setup a new ReadyNas yesterday. Work is being kind and letting us all scarper at 4pm due to the heat.

I had sushi for lunch too

Bike serviced and has new rear drop so no longer liable to "EXPLODE", personally I didn't think it ever would but the mechanic was really rather over enthusiastic about it. It's lovely now though it actually purrs as you go through the gears.

I've been starting to notice a change in vibe from people when I mention the vit, it seems to have suddenly gone from

Ohh that's a a great fun race. One of the best to do, you'll really enjoy it.

 How's you training going then? It's a tough one. Are you ready for the hills. Good luck on the bike course. Etc. 

My training schedule's just gone up for it and I think my coach agrees with the change in tone.

What have I done? Has anyone on here done it. Is it really that much harder than Outlaw Half?

The green bin is out waiting for attention today I'm hoping it doesn't melt in the sunshine.

My bike now actually purrs when you use the gears it's incredible, oh and the breaks work again now as well, which is useful

Can I tag into the dodgy shoulder gang? Mine is caused by the arthritis in my neck but when it flares it pinches the nerves and my shoulder locks up solid and I loose the feeling in my left arm. NHS physio was great with it last year. I now just pay for 1 session with a private physio and get it sorted ASAP as I can't be waiting for 3 months every time it goes wrong. Oddly I now have an oval patch on my shoulder towards my spine that has permanent pins and needles, GP basically says it's one of those things and to put up with it.

We had sausages for tea last night .
