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.

DNF - What went wrong?

Posted: 26/05/2015 at 19:05

Given you said the main problem was your shoulders feeling really heavy, I'm joining those suggesting you hadn't pulled your wetsuit up enough, particularly around the shoulders.

Take your time putting it on and making sure you've pulled it up as far as possible to the top of your legs, then as far up your body as possible before putting your arms in the sleeves. Again, make sure that you pull the sleeves up as far as possible so that any 'slack' is around your shoulders.

Once it's on, it should feel a bit tight. If it doesn't, then it may be that it's too big for you.

Relay is very straightforward. 3 people doing one leg each or 2 people with one doing one and the other doing two legs (swim and bike/run; or swim/bike and run; or even swim/run and bike.

If you already have an entry you'll need to speak with OSB about the possibility of switching your individual entry to relay.

Fuelling for shorter distances

Posted: 18/05/2015 at 10:59

Hi Rachel,

Regardless of your size you shouldn't need any extra nutrionion for a 10k. I suspect it's much more likely that you're going out too fast for your current fitness levels.  Slow it down a little until you can complete 10k comfortably then start thinking about adding the speed back in.
