I've used P20 factor 50 at both Lanzarote and Nice to good effect (although I did top up at Lanza in both T1 and T2 with other brands). The formulation has changed since 2004 as para-Aminobenzoic Acid (PABA) is no longer flavour of the month and they've also tried to make it less cloth staining (not a complete success on this one). Don't be shy with it when applying (even though it's pricey).
Adidas have a couple of new shoes (Boost and the bonkers looking Springblade) which seem to try to maximise "energy recovery". Are Puma working on similar lines or is this something you've looked at and decided not to pursue?
Interesting to see the derivation of the distances. I reckon I'd be capable of about double the record times for the bike and run, but closer to triple the time for the swim
Lots of alternatives:
Kenny Craig : Look into my eyes, look into my eyes, the eyes, the eyes, not around the eyes, don't look around the eyes, look into my eyes. You're under!
your plan for Loch Ness sounds sensible, run walk is a very good way of reducing fatigue/muscle soreness. I've only done one 'marathon as a training run', but even at 30 mins outside of PB pace I was feeling a bit battered for the following week.
Are you following a published training plan? Running a slow marathon 3 weeks out to prepare for your A race is a risky proposal (if you are really a beginner as your profile says you are).
Looks like VIP entry is now sold out (well my link takes me to a sold out page).
The Tadworth 10 gives out a different memento every year, I've had a small towel, insulated sandwich bag and thermal buff in years gone by. The slate coasters at the end of the Conniston 14 are at least useful but I've still to work out what to do with the horse brass given out at the Hastings marathon some years back. The commemorative wallet at the end of the Chiltern 100 Sportive was a little odd.
