    Get used to the wind and climbing into the wind is my top tip.  You may be lucky and race in modest conditions but prepare for the worst.

    Seriously?  3mph, Barlos?  That sounds horrendous!

  • It *is* horrendous, make no mistake.  It's an absolutely outstanding day but it's not easy! 

  • I think 3mph was due to having spent the previous 2-3 hours cycling uphill into the wind, the ascent through Teguise up to the top of Haria is about 13 miles and nearly 600 meters.

  • Haven't got the legs for marathon distance yet but did half of the bike course last year and going back to do full in April.

    envious of you guys but same as all of my old report cards, need to work harder to get there. Got the bug on the bike, just need to mtfu and link my swim and run to my very slow bike.

  • By coincidence I shall be in Lanza for the IM, pure accident I realised that it was on at the dates I was looking for a holipop. image

    Good stuff - will we be seeing you at any point round the course?

  • Excellent stuff Nicko, which bit of the island are you staying at?

     

  • Unfortunately work have decided that I need to be somewhere else hot and hilly the day of Lanza IM so I will no longer be partaking...  There goes the rest of my tri season to boot!  Let me know when there is an IM Lanza 15 thread and I will be there...

    Good luck all

  • I'm a little jealous - the bike course is brilliant image

    Get the miles in then the wind / hills don't seem nearly so bad 

  • The dreams started last night

    A little earlier than usual

    Got to the start line and had forgotten how to swim

  • That's actually the reality for me SA!  image

  • SA are you doing Lanza then? Haven't read the thread, just popped on cos I have realised that for our first sunshine holiday for 13 years I have booked Lanza in IM week image quite accidentally, it coincides with Mr AJH birthday.

  • Yep, doing Lanza.

    Which bit of Lanza are you staying in?

    The race starts and finishes in Puerto Del Carmen which is where we are staying
