Outlaw 2016



  • How's the cough mate ?, I'm on antibiotics now so should be good by the weekend.

  • Seems to have settled right down. Put in a couple of reasonable efforts although it was a gentle ride overall. Main effort was a long stretch that started as a bit of flat with bumps to contend with, then downhill, and at the start of it my mate says "there's no way you'll drop me on this bit", so I got on the tri bars and dropped him. Think I was waiting at the bottom for about 2 minutes.

  • Nice one mate, I might try a gentle run tomorrow.
  • No run today still coughing  image

  • Just focus on getting to Sunday in the best health possible mate. Sure Horse and Duda will do a grand job leaving you as much time as possible to get round the run

  • Razor we can cough and shuffle together
  • Yeah mate, I've got all my fingers crossed that the antibiotics work soon but like you say Horse and Duda will leave me plenty of time to walk the marathon if I have to. image

    Zoe, it will be a pleasure  to run with you again.image

  • I've trimmed my beard right down from the full Amish and shaved my head (baldy!)....It must be race week!image

  • Hair cropped short and beard gone. Armpits shaved. Minimal gainsimage

  • I looked at YouTube videos to try learn how to braid my hair..

    Who knows, with these marginal gain Jan Frodeno's IM record could be very short lived!


  • Hey, will see you all at the weekend.  I wish everyone the best of luck and I hope its not as hot as it has been this week!  Feels like it came round really quickly this year...

  • I'm in the process of packing. I've lost all enthusiasm for packing. My actual camping gear is in the car, the bike rack is mounted to the towbar, track pump etc is in the car. Just need to pack my clothes, bike kit, and then put the bike on in the morning.

    Looking forward to it though, just can't be arsed!

  • Pull your finger out man.   image

  • I'm pretty much done. Just need to put the bike on the rack in the morning and head off

  • car packed, quick meeting, then down to HP. Looking forward to meeting you all, mine will be the ORANGE tent hailing back to the times went tent were tents and not living systemsimage

    See you all tomorrow - we're coming up tomorrow straight to Future Outlaw, but then we'll wander over to the campsite and set up after. Have a safe journey up, all.

    Are we in any particular area of the campsite, or is it just "wander around until you see the flags"?

  • on the left, about half way down.... it'll be obvious!

    lets be honest.... its all prep for an Ironman on my 100th birthday
  • Look for a small green tent next to a red Hyundai Coupe, that's where I'm at. Past the glamping pods on the left
  • I'll be driving up tomorrow morning but will be sure to pop by to say hello.  Getting excited, but nowhere near ready and still everything to pack.

  • Will be trying to get there for 2:00pm briefing, see you all at the campsite!

    Good luck everybody!

    Stay safe and race like champs
  • Changed entry to relay (due to the shoulder issue) and am doing the bike and run. Hopefully meet some of you over the weekend! 

  • I'm in the wrong side of the campsite, but here. Likely that I'll spot you about in the morning????

    Glad you are still getting a spin out Jonny!
