Didn't finish but for someone who hadn't even done a half ironman it was a great learning experience. Put in a good swim and got out the water at 1.18 but got badly lost on the bike and did an extra 20k before refinding my route but losing the entire field. Felt like a long lonely ride to finish the first loop having clocked up over 65 miles. Didn't have the confidence to attempt another loop so quit and started the run. A bit boring to be honest. Doing a 2.8k run over and over. I couldn't face seeing those miserable kids at the far end another time so quit after doing the Little Woody 11 miles. A good training ride and I now have a better idea of what it takes to do an ironman. Thinkingg of trying a better organised event (and paying the price for it) such as Hever Castle next year. 

Good to meet seren and Terry and kicking myself for forgetting to pack my axe

Thanks to Vince and Trevor who worked tirelessly all weekend.

Might be another kind of cut off you need to worry about.

Posted: 28/08/2015 at 10:45's question is... How many miles into the cycle ride is the feed station?

Not sure how many people will respect the advice of someone who doesn't know that Runner's World is not about basketball.
