Gutted - I have to drop out folks. Long story that is v boring but the result is I have my girls that weekend as the wife will be away in Paris. I'll pop along and cheer at you in the pool first thing on one of the days. 2nd year running I've had to jib out...not good!

Just signed up now...not holding out much hope though as no wifi in the shed (a good 30m from the house)

Longish runs off the bike on the Saturday. The midweek brick session is good for quick leg turn over but being able to get up to pace after several hours on the bike really helped me last year, given that is where the wheels (or legs) fell off at Outlaw 2013.

I'll give it another couple of months thanks

For those that have raced IMUK there before, do they give you access to the water on the Friday and Saturday? They did for IMUK 70.3 last year and I found it really beneficial.

Pirates...some help if you can.

I have been running trainer road for the last couple of months. Really enjoy it and I think the real time feedback is great. However, for the first time in 2 1/2 years of using a turbo during the winter, I'm getting a pain at the top of my knee cap (left knee only, my weaker leg).

This tends to kick in after 40 minutes or so and happens more acutely when my cadence is higher than average and in a smaller gear and tends not to happen when I'm turning a bigger gear and putting out bigger power numbers.

Anyone else experienced this or can give me an amateur diagnosis?
