Selbs - top stuff, you have to be in for a shout of somewhere between 6:30 and 6:40s after that run.
TT - hope the calf holds up. I agree with you, you need to start making more start (and finish) lines. Ribs should be fine in a week or two ! unless I go over the handlebars or get a kick in them Sunday then its probably more about the training they caused me to miss rather than how much they hurt on the day.
Lev - I agree on the non carb deplete/load (I never did the Aussie thing either), just eat a few more carbs and get some electrolytes on board in the few days before hand. Just dont go testing how fit you are with 12 at MP anytime soon !
Padams - according to the start list someone from your locality who is in my AG is coming to the forest Sunday, they are fast and might take out the whole race, we'll see. I thought that Weymouth and Wales would hit the entries for Sunday, but there's still 220 ish (so I'll hope for top 10% and AG podium), and after rough seas at both of the mentioned races last weekend the New Forest numbers might go up next year due to the (supposed) sanctuary of a lake swim. Hope its calm now Sunday after saying that.
