Thanks Agreed FRC - fully plan to test these things post - Iron. I've signed up for Abingdon marathon, but might trade that for a place at Chester, given I'll be closer to there after the move, which is imminent btw.

Have a great race Sunday Martin, sounds fun!

I will be around at Outlaw  

I'm pretty sure the tents are there to facilitate your nudity, but I can't confirm or deny having never visited such a tent before.

Might be FRC - possibly also overdoing it in general? You do seem to be training/racing lots (Coops in a glass house over here).

I like loops.

I smashed my half ironman on the weekend, finished in 5:25, knocking a whopping 1 hour 20 mins or so off my Pb, finishing with a 1:51 half marathon. Talked to tri club coach last night and there is an outside chance of a sub-4 ironman marathon based on my times in this race and how training has been going generally.. but we will see.

Lovely to meet you likewise Cotswolds Wolf. The Diggers too, and that other guy with the rum, he was alright. Nice work everyone in truly stupid weather.

Yeah, I was completely and utterly shocked by my time. Still am.

I think pace/too much effort is the vom inducer. Husband is training for a trail ultra in a couple weeks, he has been running too fast on long runs, came home on the weekend, was sick and then had to stay in bed for the rest of the day. No gels (which is probably some of the issue here), just one and half of those 'bounce' balls, and 2 litres of water from a camelbak over 26 miles.

Sorry the job is rubbish at the moment Ikle.

FRC - ever thrown up or feel hohum?

I've never thrown up from exercise, I don't think I've ever had the fitness before to push my body that far. First time was last week where I felt sick after a track session, but no so far as to actually vom. My fitness has jumped up considerably in the last couple weeks. 

Hohum - yes, definitely. Mixed feelings after my last half-iron, really proud of myself for achieving such a thing, but at the same time feeling disappointed I didn't achieve it just that bit faster. Planning to sort that out on the weekend.. 

Have a great holiday Howard! I say take the running kit, imagine seeing a pretty trail and not being able to run on it!

I'll be there, wave 3 for me. They sound pretty flexible with the cutoffs, I think you'll be alright.

I'm looking forward to the race reports from you both

I'm moving to Manchester, will be there by the end of the month. Exciting but sad to be leaving all my friends and favourite running/cycling/swimming spots. Tapering this week - I have my half ironman 'warm-up' race next weekend. Whoop.
