A few more points in what's likely to be a quiet month for me.

Right, I've just Mapmyride'd a double loop of the bike course.  It confirmed your measurements Farmer (which were bound to be more reliable anyway) so the bike course will end up being 3 miles (9-10 minutes) long.  It would be great if we get that back off the run!

All things being equal I plan to head over this Saturday morning to do a bike recce with a loop of the run course (if I can figure it out) added as a brick.

If anyone's in the area and fancies getting involved let me know, otherwise I'll report back on Sunday/Monday.

Right, thanks for the heads-up on this one Kate.  I've just heard from the helpful race organisers and it looks like I should have the opportunity to sign up next months after I finish London Oly unscathed.  Weather permitting, I'll head over there on 11th to have a go at a couple of laps on the bike course.

Attempt 5 at getting my IM GI issues sorted.  This time out, liquid only.  That's going to be a killer (hopefully not literally) for a man with my appetite!

Unless something happens with C226, I reckon I might join you at the Immortal Kate as not too far from me.  It would mean me having to reign it in a bit at London Oly the weekend before, which will be annoying as I've rounded up a bunch of mates I'd like to beat.  Hmmm.

Bastion was also recommended to me by C226 organiser.  It appealed until I spotted that the pro who won it last year managed it in a time just under 10 hours.  I'm chasing a time.  The Bastion aint the course for it!  I might make a (un)reasoned plea to Outlaw (the only other weekend I have free this summer).  I don't hold out much hope but in my favour, I did take part in 2012 to receive, after half a day of flogging myself to death, one of the most measley finisher medals EVER.  Not sure that'll carry much weight in my search for a place in a sought after race.

13:17 is still a pretty impressive time given your self-confessed crapness at descending on a course which is 90% downhill!  It was also a pretty hot start to the run, from what I can remember.

IF by some miracle I am allowed to particpate, I suspect I would end up sleeping in the boot of my car.  If that's on the campsite, by a technicality, I guess the answer would be "yes" Mrs Digger.

Went out there for sub-11 (as I should have managed last year in both IMA and Barca) but was thwarted AGAIN by gut and despite being on target for a 10:15/30 finish I keeled over after 127 miles.  Took a 30 minute nap on the grass by the canal.  Got up, gave it a mile to work out if I could slog it out or DNF.  Staggered, got teary eyed, couldn't muster speech when I saw a mate and made the tough decision to give up.  Unfortunately GI issue can only be provoked by 8-9 hours of "going hard" over bike and run so trial an error is an expensive and infrequent occuring opportunity.  How about you?  At least you have a medal!
