Hi AJH - T1 isn't exactly the best place for a chat is it?!  Sorry to hear about DNF.

Seren - you can even do this as a full and finish in the morning if you want to.  Very laid-back atmosphere compared to other tris.  More comments on tritalk if you're interested.

Glad you enjoyed it - I didn't find the burger van to be a distraction, I was too busy cursing at the wind and the stretch of road with no lights.

See you at the full Outlaw if we both get in.

Can we at least wait until we've paid & entered or is that not the pirate way?

No race reports done yet then?  Tsk.

Wetsuit advice

Posted: 30/06/2014 at 17:34

As many have said on here - the best wetsuit is the one that fits you best.  Do you have a tri store/ wetsuit stockist anywhere near you to try things on?  Some of the lakes might also have suits to try on.

You might also have a look at the sites of the usual suppliers - Blue Seventy, Zoot, Orca, Speedo - to see what design you might prefer.

Hope it went well Ash - I completely forgot about it until I was cycling back towards Farnborough Village.  There's always next year....

Challenge Vichy 2014

Posted: 11/06/2014 at 20:59

Based on last year, I didn't do the race briefing but the organiser was OK with it.  In terms of registration & racking, we all did that on the Saturday - they were a bit anal about the race belt having 3 clips but I think they just gave out safety pins for those with only 2 (Atom may have had one of them).

They opened the lake for practice swimming on the Friday & Saturday & plenty took part.  Don't remember a race on the Sat afternoon but wouldn't have done it anyway.

Hopefully you'll have the cool-ish weather that we had.

Emergency kit order

Posted: 27/05/2014 at 20:28

Kit arrived - many thanks Seren.  At the moment I think I prefer the side pockets based on other tops that I have but the chamois in the new shorts might take some getting used to.

Prescription cycling/running glasses

Posted: 13/05/2014 at 21:24

You can get prescription goggles (I used to get mine from D & A for around £15 - £20) if you don't want to do the contact lens thing for swimming.  I used to use the insert thing but cleaning was a bit fiddly.

You could always get laser surgery....

Spots Drink options

Posted: 27/04/2014 at 14:41

None of the ones that I've used have many calories in them but I use them as an easy way to get another sports drink & get my calories from energy bars.  They're a lot easier than carrying around little bags of powder & obviously easier to add to your bottle.
