Ali - unless you have a reason to think that you need them (e.g. a propensity to cramp) I wouldn't worry about it too much. I can't take any of the 'sports drinks' either and managed fine in IMWA with 30C heat and a not too fine crusting of salt on High5 gels, water, bananas and the odd bar. It's very individual but the research doesn't support the need for additional salt in most people.
I've just had a really good swim
I went to bed instead of going for a swim.hopefully next week when the pool is back to normal and the kids are in school i will get back into routine
RBM.rest and recover........there is no rush..and enjoy the drink
RBM - hope all is ok. Enjoy that wine
EP - if you use daily disposables you might like to consider a trial of monthly lenses - that was my opticians answer for IM.
Hope you're soon back at it RBM.
Weather looking great for long rides the weekend!!!!!
hope its tays good tomoorw as I have a 200km audax rides tewkesbury way
Nerves are kicking in as I have my first ever Duathlon on Sunday. The weather forecast so far looks OK but I think I may have damaged the front wheel on my bike last weekend so have to get it checked over before then. Am wondering why I entered this one as looking at previous results it's for the fast boys and girls only. Ah well do my best and see what happens on the day.

Stanners, are you providing a course review for us? Would be interesting to hear how exposed the course is. Have a good time!
I wouldn't be sharing anything you learn on your recce, Stanners. It is a race, after all, and not a knitting contest
the rain is promised for next week so I think everyone should take advantage of the dry weather and do at least 6 hours on the bike.might be the last chance to enjoy the dry for a few months

and a kill is still a kill
Stanners - looking forward to a good ride on Sunday, wind looks like it could be from the southwest, probably the most favourable. Lap of each and in to the boozer for a swift one me thinks
