wet arm warmers just sounds like a less than ideal way to warm yourself up 

edit ..unfortunate top of page post ..  goes with previous comment..  makes sense if you read back

i would have put them on ... roll em down.. take them off (in rolled down state).. and put them in transition bag rolled up .. seconds to put on , and roll them up your arms if you get cold.?   just a thought ?

Thommo .. i use a profile design "energy pack" .. can get nearly as much in that as the topeak one i used to use , but it sits much nicer on the top tube.  The topeak fuel tank , zip broke after one event .. so money back job (thanks wiggle ) and got this instead .

having said that i do tend to end up taping things on all over the bike and have bags under the saddle and generally go out looking like the cycling equivalent of an SAS landrover .. so maybe i do need something bigger

Oh , i hadn't spotted the slight change in the swim course, I wonder how that will affect things ? if at all ? ... with the quality of my sighting i'll probably still end up having to run round the rock

Thanks MTri .. now that brings back happy memories of 2011 when we were all glued to the web cam feed watching the waves breaking over the harbour and wondering if they would have to cancel the swim

sounds like you are already perfectly qualified ...See if you can scrounge some pirate kit for race day, the pirate support at Tenby has been epic over the past few years and it really helps you keep going. 

Will see you at the back of the swim

sort of ish .... i have a torn ligament and torn meniscus following a tumble earlier in year so i am not anticipating getting much of it done this time . But i love the atmosphere in Tenby , and was too late to transfer or get my money back anyway so have decided to go and get my expensive rucksack and swim cap and see how far i can get before the body says stop.  Been having physio and they had given me the green light to start cycling again and knee has been ok with that so far... running is out of the question but if i can get through the bike before the cut ( which i accept seems pretty unlikely) i can make a decent stab at walking the marathon.

basically just along for the party this year

Cant remember what the official ruling was , but for sure lots of people had wet suits stripped to waist and ran bare chested in the last few years.. not many ladies though   so may be a different rule for them  .. Will definitely be a FAQ at the briefing

has anyone looked to see where registration is , as its been moved from the usual spot , is it still near the rectory car park?
