  • Ring O' Fire.  Best race ever (despite a DNF). 
  • The first day would be the current second day, so 31 miles.  The second day would be something similar again - the whole of the Cotswold Way from its start in Chipping Campden to the finish in Bath is 102 miles.  Not sure how the Stroud to Bath sect…
  • Well done Bear - I did the first day but finished with horrendous blisters on both heels and a horrible cough.  I was hoping for a miraculous recovery overnight but that never happened, so decided not to do the second day.  My feet are very grateful…
  • Definitely go for separates - makes the whole loo thing soooo much easier.  As far as price goes, have a browse on the internet.  There are heaps of places flogging tri gear, and lots of special offers.  And don't rule out ebay...
  • I'm out of this. Broken rib has hampered my  training so I've switched to the Big Woody instead.  Hope you all have a great time

  • 8 weeks is loads of time, but you need to stop worrying and get yourself down to the pool! Aim to get to the pool 3-4 times a week between now and the event, making one of those sessions a long swim, and building up the distance each week.  Have a …

  • Not this year, but did it last year and it was ace! (apart getting sunburned on the run). Perhaps a hard hat for swimming

  • I did IMUK as my first Ironman last year.  I'm no cyclist but I managed to get round the course without any problems.  Don't get hung up on  the hills - just go at your own pace and don't worry about what other folks are doing.  The support along Sh…

  • Wetsuits come off more easily when there's water inside, so at the end of your swim stick a finger inside the neck seal to let some extra water in

  • Less than 8 hours to go...
  • I've just breakfasted on Cointreau chocolates.  We're not starting this thing until 1st January, right?
  • I may have doubled my body weight today. Whoops.

  • Hello Andy - I did IMUK this year too and had a great time.  One of the main things that appeals to me about the Outlaw (apart from the Pirates) is that everything happens in one place, ie start, T1, T2, finish.
