Excellent going Nicco, hope you can do it at Outlaw!


I've completely lost all mojo and am stuck in the ironman blues now. I got round a shortened olympic tri at the weekend but was fairly average and had no energy... 14 days after IM was probably a bit too soon to expect much. Have a half in 6 weeks and then a marathon in 8 weeks but no motivation... so have told myself nothing for a week and then get stuck back in!

Quite a good map here but needs to be put into garmin/mapmyrun etc for elevation info


Training hasnt really started for me so time objectives probably gone out of the window 

Wetsuit or Not?

SIBC - Bought a sleeveless the day before IM France.. have swam in in twice... once being IM France and the second time was at the weekend in a shortened olympic race (1km swim)...

Wasn't as cold as I was expecting (most people were shivering and complaining of the temp at this weekends race yet I was fine - so maybe says something about me)... Haven't swam in a controlled test yet to know if it is any better/worse than my now ill-fitting full sleeved suit

Well done Noz... was that you in the other Pirate Kit then? Tried to hang around at the end for a big arrgh but the post race shivers were starting so needed to get to transition and get warm before packing up.

Camlo - I was in wave 3 and was told it was now short - we turned at the 5th bouy rather than the 6th because of the water levels... had assumed it had been shortened for the two waves in front but sounds like you were perhaps the guinea pigs then? I must have come past you at some point then? Sounds like you need to get some pirate kit!

Yeah and I wish I had listened now. I wouldn't say it was dangerous particularly... but what appealed about that course was a hard, long, slow drag up hill for the first half of the lap with the chance for an amazingly fast and straight second half... not to be stuck in traffic as cars cannot overtake cyclists because there are cyclists on both sides of the roads.

Oh well... lessons learned
