Well to be precise I think its Wensleydale with chocolate. That's what Cake was eating Saturday night anyway.
<runs away at all this talk of Outlaw>
I'm not doing anything longer than a sprint tri in the next year or so, and there is no way that you can persuade me otherwise. I have too many other events to train for that I haven't got time to put in any bike training.
Maybe in 2013 or 2014, but not before then.
However, if there is a huge bunch of people going then I might be persuaded to support at Outlaw.
Back to Nantwich...
My swim time was a bit slower than normal, my bike was about the same, and the run was slower. So overall I didn't do particularly well.
I got home and went straight to bed. I'm still shattered. I thinks its becasue of teh driving and wind rather than the triathlon. It's surprising how much 24 hours fo fighting against wind can take it out of you.
I had a great time though. Thanks for the company and it was great to meet you Al.
Yo just got an e-mail from the tri coaching people who do open water swimming at Nottingham where outlaw is held. I’ve forwarded on to a few folks already but if any wants the info message me with your e-mails and I’ve forward on the form.

Cheers Cake, prob a bit too far me to travel but I have located an open water swim venue near me for when I get a wetsuit.
Any tips on which one to get and what to look for when buying? I'll only be getting a budget one for now and will prob wait til the end of the season so I can get one cheaper, maybe an ex hire.
I’m not a expert on wetsuits I’m afraid first one I got was off a mate for £50 and the one I have now is a ex hire one, It’s a very good one and recon that’s the way to go. Best bet is go to your local tri club and see if they can sort you out. If they can’t I’m sure one of us can.

So... someone tell me more about the Bristol Tri. Hubby is going to be away that weekend so I might be able to pop along. Is there any camping nearby, as it would be an early start for me to drive down on the day and I'd rather not pay out for a hotel.
