The support, as usual, was brill. I almost feel sorry for anyone not in yellow and black

Well done Flyaway, bloody fantastic result!

In the scheme of things, I didn't find it that cold. Had my Pirate monoco and arm warmers but went without gloves and was comfortable on the bike. Ditched the arm warmers and was fine on the run. And I don't say this lightly as I suffer with cold temperatures as much as the next person.

When it's raining......

I used to be in the HTFU camp up until 3 punctures a couple of weeks ago at Slateman lead to hypothermia. But I'm still not going to go overboard tomorrow. Arm warmers and fingerless gloves will suffice I think.

As Popsider said, most of the worst will be out of the way in the swim. From memory from the full, transition is cosy so will be making sure bike shoes are covered on the pedals and trainers are in waterproof bag

Looks like we'll have the wind in our faces on the last leg of the bike which will make for an interesting run

Don't stress too much, I think we've been lulled in to a false sense of security the past couple of years with good Springs, but Sunday is just an average May day in my eyes. A bit windy, a bit cold, a bit wet, a bit English really!

Should be at camp site this afternoon. Looking forward to it, despite 6 weeks of seriously disrupted training

Interesting, thanks for the feedback PIrates.

I have had 6 days off the stuff now and I've seen a noticeable improvement in training, carrying less fatigue from one day in to the next (and on a greater volume). I'm going to pick it up after next weekend when I have 3 weeks between races and see if the same thing happens and I'll let you know.

Evening Pirates. I have heard Jon and Beven bang on about Extreme Endurance for ages now. Having just come back from a holiday where I managed to get plenty of running in...leading in to a stupidly busy April and May race wise, I thought I'd give it a go.

The result...

The complete opposite effect. I have been taking it for a week and I've never felt MORE fatigued, and I mean just completely drained. Bike sessions were painful and running considerably slower that target pace.

However, I missed a dose this AM and PM due to work being a touch manic and on my brick session this evening and I felt brilliant!

Has anyone else tried it and what have your experiences been?

All done now Schmunks. Second payment of ??38 sent. It won't have a payment ref as it was sent via bank mobile app that does not allow for it. Cheers. Stanners
