  • EP, can you not wear your normal glasses on the bike? that's what I normally do and there should be an area to leave them whilst doing the swim in prescription goggles.


  • Ta Joddly!

    EP lots of vaseline, rumours say it rots your wetsuit ( probably put around by the manufacturers of body glide at £££££ a pot!) had 2 wetties in15 Years of tri both been slathered in Vas and neither affected

    the bike is on generally closed roads but you still need good vision to keep a lookout for your fellow competitors TBH its ironman take your time in transition and put in your contacts the time spent will let you get your heart rate down after the swimimage

    do the race and practice your transitions including sorting your eyeballsimage but use it as training and do not go ballistic and injure yourself

  • Happy Birthday RBM image

  • IP thanksimage

    EP get a grip image

  • EP

    They have strippers at the swim exit, they are masters at getting a wetsuit off you in seconds


  • Hope you find some nice new kit and have a great birthday RBM.

    EP - have you cut your wetsuit arms short? That helps with getting it off - no further than the taping on the inside seam though.

  • BBT, given your biking ability, you could use the wind to blow you round the swim and walk the marathon and still beat most of us. Cracking attitude too!
