    some people use nun tablets or si ilar.I use the salt tablets which carry teh whole set of electrolytes........but there are only about 3 stockists in the country that sell them....

     

     

     

     

     

  • Quick thinking here

    At a few tris I've seen bike checks looking at bar end plugs and not allowing people in if they're missing. Will that be the sane with the back end of tri bars? Will I need to plug them before the weekend?

    Haven't been able to post for a while, I haven't had the tinternet since moving and my phone is shit.

     

  • Just to annoy people.

    I packed yesterday. All in four bags:

    Pre-race (swim gear, goggles, wetsuit, trisuit)
    T1 - gear for bike
    T2 - gear for runPost Race - soap, towel, nice frock

    I started at 12:40 and was all done by 13:20. It then took me 10-minutes to get camping gear together. (Tent, Sleeping bag/mat, headtorch & breakfast).

    Still to get: Extra suncream for before race
    Still to pack: bike, shoes, helmet, glasses, pump, toolkit (all together in the garage)

    I will not look in the bags again, they are done. 50 minutes no distractions, no faffing. Job done.

    Bring it on!image

  • Uh oh...Schmunkee is going to tell me off for my formattingimage

  • Something that was recommended last year is to lay your kit out for each bag, then take a photo. That way you know what is in it without having to unpack or unrack.

  • I've packed tonight also, everything in seperate bags ready to transfer to the transition bags, everything packed highlighted on my kit list.

    Just the camping stuff to do which can wait till thursday when i pack the car. Few things to get mainly beer and food for the weekend. Oh and some ear plugs for the friday night.

    I've never used salt tablets, if its hot is it recommended to do so?

    I am living in Stanford in the Vale, its about 10 miles west of Abingdon.

    Thats all sounding a bit Tri Talk to me  image

  • That sounds a bit to organised.

    Now where did I put that plank image

  • I know where I'd like to shove it  image

    It was definitely a pirate that suggested it. Don't make me walk the plank, I can't swim!

    In the umbrella stand, next to the other, erm, bits of wood and twigs?image

  • Reading all this is making me feel quite sick...

  • M...eldy wrote (see)

    Les Boules .. if you need them for the weekend I can bring you some up

    Thanks all. i have Zero tabs but i was looking for the ones you can just swallow. if you have ones to spare M...eldy that would be ace thanks!

  • Why do bar. Ends need to be plugged?

  • For those looking for salt tablets,  Amazon do a bottle of 30 for £10.99.   Not cheap, but I've seen heat cramp and generally feeling crappy while sweating buckets....its not great.

    Imagine the end of the open bar and someones leg/arm/torso being impaled on it. The end of the tube will go quite far. With a plug not so far hopefully.

    I seem to remember some events might have only allowed tribars with a looped top so that someone can't get skewered. The rear of your tribars aren't as likely to hurt someone else but do you think the organisers will want to make the distinction?

  • I don't have tri bars..just ordinary drops.

    I'll try and remember to pack them for you !

    OK, so in a crash it is likely to be your own leg that plunge through. I am sure the organisers win't mind then! Not. Get some bar end plugs. They are included with bar tape or can be bought separately. Pop in any bike shop and I am sure they can help you out. They jsut push in.

  • At my local shop they were free when I asked - another good reason to get them image

  • felt really calm over the last few weeks, then I arrive at work last night(3 night shifts to go) and all of a sudden get the butterlies! not so much scared but really looking forward to it now.

    Weather forecast is looking good(if a little on the warm side image)

    What time does everyone recommend getting there sunday am? is 5am too late?

    cant wait now!!image

  • i get up at about 4:30 as im camping - depends how much of a flapper you are, if you got everything sorted the night before 5 will be fine 

  • Just going back to salt caps, these look to be much cheaper than saltstick:

     I plan to buy some and given you get 180 in a pack will have spare with me.

  • Meface - I've got bar end plugs....just wondered why you shouldnt be without!!

    I am SO nervous now.

    Didnt sleep.

    Butterflies++

    Need to distract myself with work today
