Will also get up for a recce or two from about March time onwards. Ran the course but didn't get to ride it last year before i had to pull out. 

Mick I would try and find a half IM around around early June for a good test run. I have two half distances in 3 weeks around then which as well as racing should mean some good training as well

Starting to think about the Full, but don't want to enter until probably, so hopefully (and can't imagine it will) it won't sell out, not before then anyway

@philpub - bringing this one out of the history books but it the post ranks highly on a Google search for Greenwich running clubs. Are you still involved with the club?What other days do they run on, or is it only based in the track session on Tuesday's? Cheers

Could be a challenge over the weekend though. Especially as tomorrow will be spent watching the rugby at Twickenham. Going to be difficult to eat anything that isn't a burger and chips I fear!

Double up on the burger (w/o bun) and bin the chips - easy!


That will be the plan and what I did earlier in the week when eating out. Much easier to do midweek when working away though (as somebody else is paying for dinner)


May cheat over the weekend for a couple of beers though I guess. (Though I think these are allowed, which I do disagree with)

Day 5 of Maffetone's two week no carb test, and must say I am finding it much easier than I ever expected. Quite often through the year I will give up refined sugar and sweets for a month but feel desire for chocolate pretty much everyday... I am still eating carbohydrates and fruit at those times


But by cutting out everything (as far as I am aware) I haven't felt any need or desire for any kind of sugar. Just got to make sure I have enough food around / prepared so that I am never hungry.

Started the Maffetone two week test this week, day 4 of (almost) no carbohydrates, alongside some very low heart rate easy running, hoping it will teach me a few things, lose a few kilos, and set me up for a better, injury-free 2016.

Has anybody else has experience?

Have booked the travelodge near the finish line, as it's about a third of the price of the usual Macron travelodge prices I'm told. It means I can shower straight after the race and head back to the finish line for the rest of the day.

Will worry about getting the bike at another point. I was informed you can do this the following day, so will probably look to do that.
