If shorter runs are ok then perhaps run walk strategy would work for you? Does knee play up on specific route / road surface? In which hilly or flat event may be less risky? 

I would be seeking more advice before either throwing in the towel or paying up for another race.

Did a turbo session in my pirate monaco.... if i smother myself in goose fat to wriggle into it then it is actually ok. Used the session to get down on tri bars, practice drinking from torpedo bottle and then take bottle (off the table next to me) to refill it. 

Now i just need to practice (learn) how to do a tyre change and i am READY!!

Do we need number on back for bike and front for run as per usual tri's because i want to carry food in my back pocket and not sure if number belt would obstruct?

Well i was in a crappy top and everyone else had posh or fun or bright etc etc gear. Now I am beginning to believe I can actually complete the distance I was thinking that wearing some pirate kit would be good?

I know, i know.... I should have foreseen my sudden desire for a monaco (If that is the posh name for a cycle top)..... But I didnt.

If anyone has a small/ medium (equiv size 10) ladies for sale I would gladly buy.

Whoop whoop officially tapering!!

Loved the familiarisation day and great to meet you MTri. I had a swim lesson before the guided lap so was wet for a good 2 hours which will surely see me out of the water on the day. The bike course was not as flat as i thought but no great lumps so reckon i should lower my predicted finish time from 16hour 59 mins to 15hr 59mins! 

Just a word of warning to anyone booked into four pillars hotel - the staff are great, the hotel is great but..... Wedding party music & guests shouting until the early hours will not be helpful so ask for a quiet room!

Thanks trigirl, that was so kind of you. I struggled to conceive for many years and it can become an obsession so booking events and holidays and everything you CANNOT do with children is a good way of keeping it low key. 

Good Luck with journey BP!

I did my familiarisation day today, had an hour 1:1 swim lesson first which was great and then did a lap of both swim and bike course. Felt.....hmmm ok! 

So glad I booked a wee log cabin for the actual event weekend because the hotel we used last night hosts weddings. Thump, thump, thump until about midnight and then banging doors and shouting for another few hours. Not happy.
