  • I seem to remember a swan using Meldys back as a take off ramp

     

  • Duck shit? Can't wait.  Last time i did the Vit it was knee deep in shit at the start.

  • duck poo capital is the lake @ Cowman.  The fermenting of the poo keeps the lake warm. image

    That is so very true!   It was most surreal loking up and back to take a breath and seeing a huge pair of orange feet running over me !!

  • Did that put you off Meldy?! I would proabbly drown of shock from that! lol

    when the swan saw Meldys stare then I'm sure it must have drowned from shock image

    I think most of us have at some time seen that stare!!!!!!!image

    That one?    image

  • yep, thats the one image

     

    accomodation now sorted (we don't do camping)

     

  • you need a bago then SA... camp site with double bed and hot and cold running facilities. image

     

  • I'm in my new (new to me as its 18 years old) caravan with family in tow. Bought it to involve the family in my first full distance as I feel it may be addictive and be required again
  • I've hot a new tent for outlaw. The one I used for Cotswold half is too small. This new one looks like its big enough image

    Need to sort a decent camping mat though
  • Accommodation booked and took delivery of my new bike yesterdayimage
  • Ultimatum this year. Caravan or new bike. I lost. Will get my first TT bike eventually
  • I've gone for a new road bike as current training one is an old steely. Need to purchase some tri bars for it as well.
  • My biggest regret is selling my old bike. I would do more winter training if I still had it as I would be bothered about keeping it too clean. Can't be arsed to clean my training/racing bike so most is done on my turbo.
  • I use my steely for turbo/commuting and up until yesterday all other rides. Going to keep using it for turbo/commuting and use the new one for all other rides(as long as its dry and one perfectly clean roads with no chance of any dirt getting on my baby);)
  • i wouldnt worry too much about not having a TT bike Ozzy, i aint got one and still manage to beat a fair few with 'all the gear'. it will make you strongerimage

     

  • I wouldn't worry about the bike... the way my training is going I will be running twice, the first time will be 112 miles closely followed by a second stint of 26.2.  I still haven't been out on my bike this year - too cold, too slippery, too much of a big girls blouse.

    What's a "hot tent" Matt?  Sounds like the pirate on-site team sauna is sorted thenimage

    +1 for not having ben outside on the bike this year. Also not enjoying the wet/windy/snowy weather. Have been busy with training (Week 18 starts for me tomorrow - still a bit ahead of the Fink plan I think). Reading Half Marathon last week, and building up to my HIM test (http://www.galeforce-events.com/triathlon-events/bedford-middle/) with a 74 mile Sportive (http://www.galeforce-events.com/cycling-events/spring-challenge-sportive/) - this is all starting to get a bit real now.

    Anyone have any advice on wetsuits? I have a very basic 2XU suit right now (T0) which has seen better days, and am thinking of hiring for a couple of months. Anyone able to recommend a good suit hire place?

  • I've got my 2xu TO from a couple of years ago. Basic but it does the job
  • Was there talk of a recce in a couple of weeks time? Im trying to decide on riding / working the Motion in Mercia sportive but I have a note on my plan that there was a plan to recce the ride and possibly even the run on the weekend of the 6th/7th April?

    Can anyone point me in the direction of the right thread? ta

     

  • Been thinking about this myself, here you go Matt;

    Not sure i can make the date though
  • Everyone seen the latest newsletter from OSB. No route up yet but looks like a change to the run course. 2 longer laps now which will be more interesting for us but on the flip side gives family / friends less chance to see you on the day.
  • i like shorter laps for ironman personally.....more support on route...off to look for the email

  • And yet this isn't what the Runners Info says on the website ... That still says four laps
  • I read it that the "change" was only for the Half? two laps instead of three?

  • i didn't get a email so maybe the emails only went out to the halfs

     

     

     

     

  • shorter cycle & run laps would be nice ........

    say like 56miles & 13miles but still call it a full outlaw image

    how is everyones training going?
