  • Well done Slokey, great swim and very impressive bike time, shame the run didnt go to plan. The conditions looked pretty decent. Lorenzo- Weymouth Ironman is at the beginning of September which is a decent back up option as a couple of work collea…

  • Dns for me as I've been up all night with food poisoning from some sh#t served in the hotel. Gutted would be an understatement.

  • Slokey- my number is 930. Best of luck, hopefully it won't be as warm as today.

  • Yes, the weather looks better, I've bought a new hat for the occasion. I've done all the training I can so just hope luck is on my side and I can make it to the finish line in one piece. I'm catching a flight to Zante early Tuesday morning for a wel…

  • It was nice jumping in the local lake yesterday evening for a couple of laps, although I did sweat my knackers off squeezing into the wetsuit. Tbh I felt a bit of a wimp as most were just in swimsuits. A bike run brick session this morning and the…

  • I like to use the local bike shops when after a new bike. When I bought my TT bike (Specialize Shiv) I had a retul bike fit first to find the best geometry bike to suit me. It does work out more expensive but I think comfort on the bike is so import…

  • Yes, we'll swap tales of smashing the course!

  • Pretty sure I'm staying at the Holiday inn, castle marina?  The club coached swim session is my favourite of the week as it has really improved my swim with the constant reminders / nagging about my poor technique. Plus I wouldn't be able to compl…

  • Oh, A minimum of 3 bikes is required but 5 would be Ideal. I love my TCR but not as much as my Shiv, which is my TT bike.

  • Ooh,  Me ears are burning! Hi all, how's it going? I've kept a low profile since picking up a calf injury after London which took an age to heal. I even avoided lurking on this thread as I was in deep sulk mode. I'm all better now with a whole mon…

  • Bloody hell Badbark, great run. Your half way split is exactly the same as mine and my finish was 2.56 on the dot! Only difference is I had to train for mine.

  • OO- I'm impressed with that HM only one week after London, that's a great run.

  • I see a few have been spanking it around parkrun only a week after London, great recovery. I had a little jog on Friday my my calfs said no after a couple of miles so quit before any more damage was done. I've been out on the bike for most of the …

  • ??? Not sure what happened there.

  • My gel strategy was one at the start then 6, 12, 17 & 21 miles, I sipped some water after about 5 miles, then picked up a bottle of Lucozade and ran with that for a fair few miles, trouble is the kind aid station lady had pulled the cap off so e…

  • Loved reading all the reports, it doesn't seem to matter if you had a good or bad run, those last 5 miles are soooo tough, I swear at the time never again as I feel I'm just in survival mode. My legs are totally battered today and I screamed like …

  • Hi Literatin, yes that was me. Just checked out your pic and I do remember seeing you a few times. That's a great run! Fantastic day for running wasn't it.

  • Sorry you had a dns Jools, same for me back in 2013 the day before so I know how gutting it is. Great to meet the battle weary in Chandos after the race, everyone looked like they'd put in a decent shift. My race went rather well although it did…

  • Bike it- Cheers but I'm without a car for Sunday so getting over to Basingstoke is the problem, so I'm staying over my mother in laws at Reading (taking my ear plugs). I've used the Basingstoke route before which is by far the most straight forward.…

  • Not sure as I've always got the train to Blackheath, it's a big green field to walk around and I'm saving my legs for the race.

  • I went to the expo today to pick up my number and work out the logistics of getting to the start as the Bakerloo line doesn't stop at Paddington at the moment ????. Looks like no 23 bus from Paddington to Trafalgar Square then Charing Cross to Bla…

  • VTr- my training looks similar to Slokey's, lots of easy miles with nothing really faster than 8mm pace keeping my heart rate nice and low and controlled. I'm happy to plod along closer to 9mm pace as I think this is just as good to build a decent a…

  • Great effort VTr, Boston seems a pretty tough course. I'm starting of at the Red gfa and my number is 30600. My plan is to try for 2.55, trouble is the 5 miles today with 2 at mara pace seemed like hard work. We'll see on Sunday.

  • Great race reports from GM and KR, looks like you both had a tough time.   KR weaving through all the slower runners would have cost you some time plus the odd panicky surge would have wasted valuable energy. So to pb under those circumstances r…

  • Bad luck Gerard, those glute niggles are my main nemesis, closely backed up by hip flexors, tight calfs etc etc.... What was the abdominal pain, food issues or do you think linked to your groin injury. Still, well done for toughing it out, these m…

  • Well Done KR which is little comfort as not what you were after, the late stressful start must have had an impact. I'm sure your time you want will come. CSM that's a great effort and a massive chunk off your old pb. Good work Poacher, I do li…

  • Good luck to all those running Manchester today, weather looks ok from were I'm sitting down south. Competed in my first duathlon yesterday which was brutal. 5k run, 25k bike, 5k run, both runs were off road on a lumpy muddy course and the bike …

  • Good news Fishy OO- feeling pretty confident as I've had a really decent block of uninterrupted training which I have to put down to mixing it up on the bike and swim. The only problem may be the lack of big weekly running miles but I've averaged…

  • Slokey- I'm still paying for my wheels. The cost of this triathlon lark is never ending. Trying to find the perfect swim goggles seems to be a never ending quest. And I'm currently researching tri short and top combo or just sticking with my cheap …

  • Hmmm. Worrying about weight, deciding on pacing strategies, the taper must be starting. I'm already on the beetroot juice! Now I'm the lightest I've been for a long long time, about 25 years in fact at a tad under 68kg. Big week of running for me …
