Yup. Wasn't sure what the plans were for next summer but as Rocco says, have to keep the kids happy so yes I'll being have another go next year. I don't feel like I've run round that lake enough yet!

The 2014 Outlaw feedstation/supporters thread

Yesterday a couple of people on here said nice things about my youngest, Ben. It didn't sound like the Ben that we live with but it was nice of you to say and he was pleased to read the comments.

I asked the boys if they'd like to do it again next year and both me and my wife almost had to sit down to recover from the enthusiasm for doing it again next year shown by the eldest. They'd both like to come again but Joseph is a teenager - he never shows enthusiasm for doing anything I suggest!

Challenge Weymouth is next for me.

Haven't decided fully about 2015 yet. I've already signed up for Grafman and after this weekend I'll be having another go at Outlaw (and even if I didn't want to I'd have to go to Outlaw again as the Cheggers Wife & Children are looking forward to doing the feed station again).

I think I'm tired from the weekend. I added my points from Outlaw earlier. I added 71 to 393 and got 364. I'm only on my iphone for the next week or so, could the next person on here amend my total to 464.

Thanks.

We'll if you wanted a report....

Ok, first thing Monday morning and I'm awake and at a campsite that is far quieter than it was yesterday. We're off to France on holiday in a few hours and I don't know if I'll have any internet there so I thought I'll do a quick report now.  

It was very good.

To be slightly more detailed....Getting in the lake was like getting in a bath, it was that warm and the swim was lovely. No aggro at all, plenty of people about but no real shortage of space. Best OW swim I've ever had without a doubt, also the fastest.

Onto the bike. I wasn't loving being on the bike for some reason but was averaging 20mph and so I decided to try to maintain that. No complications just cruised round. Had some headwind but then had some tailwinds too. I knew aiming for 20mph may "damage" my run a bit and it did but until the last  couple of miles of winding and slower roads I did the 20mph and if was good going back in with the transition area being relatively empty. 

I found the run hard going at times but got round. On sneaking a look at it last night I seem to have done all sorts of damage to my left foot - but blisters and toenails fix! 

My only other iron distance race was Henley last year. That was a harder bike course but not significantly harder. Today I was an hour quicker so I'm very happy with how it went. Need to do a bit of recovering and then do it all again in Weymouth in September (that won't be so quick as I have already done the bike course).

Thanks to all the pirates - the support is magnificent. My wife and children did the feed station too and they all really enjoyed themselves. Ta!

We're going to France on Monday for a couple of weeks. Sort of packing at the moment. There's piles of bits all over the place. It'll get sorted tomorrow and once that's done I'll start sorting the stuff for Sunday. Must remember the bike (which is a different bike to the one going to France - we're calling in here on the way to Eurotunnel so I can swap bikes)

It'll all be fine through and in 24 hours time we should be at HPP; just hoping we'll be able to get though the code number on the gate (I think I read somewhere it was coded).

The last week! But that's it now until Sunday's fun & games at Outlaw. Bike = 164 miles, swim = 5.6k and run = 20 miles, so 54+14+20 = 88
