Getting very real, I got sent a picture of the road closed signs from a holidaying colleague today.

I've just purchased a pair of toe cover overshoes, really don't want cold wet feet but can't be doing with putting full overshoes on.

Going to change to race tyres tonight before bike service Sunday. Had a sports massage last night hoping to get rid of a bit of a "plantar fasciitis" strain. having a week off running before I decide if I'm going to be taping it up for the race.  A light week of bike and swim training for me next week. Looking forward to the numbers being sent.

Not this year, too close to Wales, but I'll be doing it next for sure.

To fuel the hard race discussion should Celtman be included, that wasn't a race when the rankings were done but is (or looks) bloody hard.

If I were taking part this year and the weather was as autumnal as last year, I would go for a full change (at least of top half) in T1 just to get dry clothes on and be warmer.  Probably a jersey and arm warmers with a jacket in my pocket.  I'd probably include another top for the run and include 3/4 length tights in case I was cold.  If I wasn't cold/wet coming off the bike, I may not use any of it.

 

 

This is basically my plan 2 x full changes - cycle shorts, cycle top and arm warmers,(without the 3/4 length tights), although I only have a very light shower proof in cycling top. into run shorts and tri top. I have considered putting on a base layer in T1 as I was a bit chilly on this weeks long ride.

Has anyone been to the pasta party on the Friday night before, what's it like it , what's the food like?, is worth it or is it better to have a meal in the town?

Another taper madness silly question; I assume it's okay to use a pair of flip flops to get to the swim start and leave them on the beach?
