  • Will hopefully be supporting, where will people be in the morning? 

  • I'll be in the sea, then on my bike (all being well.)

  • Just in case I forget to pop in during the week, I want to wish everyone all the very best of luck on the day.  Race hard and come out on top image  xxx

  • Roco we will be there from the beginning

  • did a 5 mile run today as one leg of a relay team.boy was i crap.......I had even grabbed the easiet leg........I think it must be a mental thing where my mind stopped me from running fast in a campaign to avoid injury

  • Seren - I seem too be doing the same thing... A bit paranoid of injury...

    good luck too all of you for Wales il be doing Henley the same day in my own world of painimage

  • This time next week and all that.

    Where will you be, would love to meet people and support rather than just stood on my own

  • Just been to Boots for Immodium & Voltarol, I think my lists are complete, the only thing I cannot even begin to contemplate is post race food.  What do people do?  Pack sandwiches in the post race bag?  Fish & Chips in Tenby?  Guiness & a bag of pork scratchings?  I cant even begin to imagine what I might even want, I read someones race report from last year and they craved cornflakes of all things.

  • Imodium and volterol?

  • FRV - I don't know what IMW plan this year, but there's usually (well has been in all IM events I've done) food available in the finisher's area so no need to supply your own 

    in 2011 it was fish and chips which went down well.....followed by a couple of pints....image

    and then a big fry up the following morning followed by rather a lot of pints....10 I think!!!

     

  • Chris yes, Immodium Instants to take as a precaution before the run & I will carry the Voltarol as a just in case, I've started to get a few aches, pains and grumbles from my left ankle, just repetitive impact injury I think, nothing major but wouldn't want it to spoil my day & I've taken it before so happy with it's effects.

    Thanks for the info fat buddha, I will aim to be finished before the pubs shut so worst case scenario it's several Guinness & pork scratchings then.

  • Just popping in from the Henley thread to wich all those racing good luck on sunday image

  • There was loads of food last year, the pork stuffing and gravy baps were particularly amazing image

  • so my incentive to actually hit the cutoffs this time is food

  • Rocco at the moment I have no idea ..Ive not been before so I dont know the layout of the place .. I have no doubt we will be in pirate kit for the majority of the weekend and will be there from the Friday
    If I get chance to check out a suitable spot and update the thread I will do otherwise hover around the swim start and look out !!

  • Meldy will probably be on the corner of road where the athletes turn right to go towards transition by the white hotel. That's a good spot to be in.
