Ironman Wales 2015 ....who's in ??

Posted: 16/04/2015 at 08:16

Morning all. 

For those still thinking about nutrition, bear in mind that during the race your guts will slowly begin to shut off during the bike, and more quickly on the run. It means that if you have over-indulged on the bike you will almost certainly get crippling "gut issues" on the run! This is why it's crucial to practice your race day nutrition well in advance, particularly on long bikes and including a decent run off. it turns out you can actually only absorb a relatively small amount per hour (for me around 50g carbohydrate, but you can look it up), not enough to fully replenish but enough to keep you going. If you consume more than you absorb it sits in your guts, holding water, and is potentially a showstopper....

Good to see some solid training going on, with hilly bike rides being the common theme!

Garmin 920XT if she runs & swims, or an Edge if not?

Great time in those conditions, Dave, sorry about being pipped.

It was rather wet, and quite a lot of traffic too, I thought. How did you get on, CD? I somehow missed the prize ceremony as I was in the cafe, so didn't get to find out if there were any pirates on the podium.

Gulp - that's certainly got the butterflies going!

He'll probably be being body marked and weighed about now. 

Go, Barley!!

Happy Friday to you, Funkin!

Congratulations on a great race and another wonderful report.

I'm thrilled that you and Sharon are going back to Kona next year, and already look forward to Kona Diaries, episode 2 .

Ironman Wales 2015 ....who's in ??

I have unfinished business, and the local support for IM Wales is unsurpassed. So I'm in, obviously. It was stunning this year (first time I've ever seen an IM from the outside).

Actually, so is Meldy but she hasn't acknowledged it yet. Maybe .
