Eliminator Race 7th Feb - Newbie any tips on CLOTHING??

Posted: 08/01/2015 at 20:17

Base layers are generally lighter weight kit designed to be worn under something else as part of a 'layering' system.

Compression kit is tight fitting kit designed to improve venous return and provide compression to stabilize/minimize muscle movement.

Neither will keep you warm once it gets wet. I would suggest wearing the oldest pair of standard running tights and technical top that you own on the basis that you may need to chuck it away once you've finished.

You may also like to consider that less maybe more - depending on how cold it actually is on the day. Wet, muddy kit can get heavy and uncomfortable so wearing capri/shorts might be better. Your skin dries quicker than kit.

As for race day tips, expect to get wet and muddy and have lots of fun

Jantastic was down early and they reported they were working on it. 

Garmin Connect seems to be variably available.  Not had a problem with it myself yet but I believe clearing history on watch has solved connectivity problems for some people.

Almost binned today's planned swim in favour of a rest day.  Then I remembered Jantastic and dragged myself down to the pool for a 2k splash

That was 'fun'

Many thanks to all involved but in particular the marshalls who must have been a tad chilly out there today.

Chilly 10 mile run this morning. Furthest I've run for at least 6 months but it's getting easier. Need a kip now though!
