9Iron- I don't think I've ever seen a wrapped prezzie.

Flyers can't win the fastest novice, 'cos it ain't her first rodeo.

I'll try not to get the longest time in transition, I almost won last year.  Suspect it'll be me, Cougie and Gladys duking it out for the best mincer again.

In the event that Flyers is outright fastest and fastest female, is she allowed to take both shields or does the second shield roll down?

I'm relatively certain I've seen it in little individual tubs, I'll check the supermarket when I pop in for my salt and pepper cashews for my street wear bag.

Mouse- I'm valid through to the end of the month so no worries on that score.  If I renew before I go I'll get put into a draw for some Garmin shiny things.  Gingers crossed for you HC and a speedy recovery to ByF.

First and second items on the forgotten list - piratey prezzy and foreign currency.

I don't think I've been this disorganised in a long time.  However passport has been located and travel arrangements made.  I'll be arriving on the (train of doom - 1), so a little in advance of the cool kids.  Now just have to arrange travel insurance, renew BTA membership, sling some stuff into a bag and then start on the 'what have I forgotten' list.

I think it's probably time to trot out the 'It's better to arrive at the start line 10% under trained than 1% over trained'.

Traning suggestions for marathon/halfs?

Hello Charlie,

a lot more running will get you better times.  Have a google for Pfitzinger and Douglas whose marathon training plans (and book) come highly recommended.  My PB was set after following their 18 week 50-55 mile program.

As for the afternoon half, I'd not get too hung up on the nutrition- you should normally have enough 'go' in you to run a half without having to resort to carb loading etc.  I prefer to race on an empty-ish stomach, so I'd probably have an early lunch (12-ish) of something easily digested.

One of these things is not like the other

There's every chance, this weekend I did back-to-back 150 mile bike rides with a 15 mile run after each. Swam full distance every morning last week before work and for fun have done the same yesterday and today. Jogging a half marathon at lunchtime followed by a full distance swim this evening and after some food will head out for a night 100 mile bike.

I rested on Monday with a 2 hour gym session

I swam yesterday, well, splashed about and got from one end of the pool to the other without drowning, and back again. This is now 2 swims since July, there is every chance I will arrive over-trained 


Cougie- you have RW mail, if you can't see it please holler and I'll SMS you (assuming your phone number hasn't changed in about a decade...).

I'm hoping Nirvana don't have me down for a Sunday pickup, I'm supposed to be shadowing at a tri that day.
