Outlaw Bike Feedstation 26 July 2015

Posted: 01/06/2015 at 14:27

The team running 'our' feed station on the half yesterday were pretty good but not half as noisy/cheery/abusive as the Pirates are

Thanks for the fab support from you and yours yesterday, much appreciated.

Don't think I'm going long next year but might just have to try and make it to the DIY,  just because

Racing Pirate Spotting - outlaw 1/2

Most people will understand a less than enthusiastic response, particularly on the run course, we all go through it. Having said that, I reckon the support really can help lift the spirits and get you through a dark patch. If I hadn't stopped to hug/chat to the assorted pirate supporters on the run course I might have slipped in under 3hrs for the run. On the other hand, it's entirely possible I would've been a lot slower cos each stop/hug made me feel better and more able to keep pushing on

I was slightly tempted to nick your bike Postie! Thanks again for the hugs and excellent support x

Training for a shorter Tri

Bad luck Steady. I reckon you stopped at the right point. The return from the southern loop was the worst few miles on the route; full on headwind for most of it made it really tough.

Recover well

Congrats again on the result Flyaway and also for the nifty footwork avoiding the beer shower on the podium!

I was surprised by how many people did the bike course in just tri-suits. Okay, so I lost time in transition putting on arm warmers, gore jacket and full finger gloves but it did mean that I was comfortable throughout the bike which, for me, is more important. If I'm cold I get tense and miserable.

Had a good day at Outlaw half today. Hoping to get a century ride in next weekend but that depends slightly on how well my legs recover from the longest 'run' I've done since Austria last year.

When it's raining......

Posted: 27/05/2015 at 22:45

Forecast currently says 'heavy rain' but quite often the Met office definition of 'heavy rain' differs substantially from mine so I'll be taking clothing for everything from persistant drizzle to torrential downpour and will make a final decision first thing Sunday morning. 

Currently expecting to wear shorts, monaco, Gore rain jacket and bike gloves (full finger). May add arm warmers to that lot depending on how I feel when I get out of the water and how windy it actually is.
