I did the Brevet Cymru (405km) off the back of one 107km ride and that was it. I was fine. You just pace & fuel yourself accordingly. Having some company definitely makes a difference too.

Yes, I picked the Crowne Plaza as it doesn't involve too much transiting between the race site & hotel, which can sap needless energy on the Saturday. I actually found all the dicking around at Frankfurt with a car and the split transitions quite a nause (obv the heat exacerbated it). I fly from LHR, and will just get a taxi from the airport. Hotel was less than Ä70/night iirc on Expedia, and breakfast was around Ä8.95/day and trust me, I will get my monies' worth Very Happy

ETA - it's a 2km walk to Transition from the hotel, so just over 20 min; all part of the warm-up!

There's also a 50m Oly pool a stone's throw from the hotel; ideal because I guess the lake won't be open for swimming until the weekend? (I arrive Wed evening)

Can you not get the U-bahn to save your legs?

Think they were claiming less than 100 places left earlier today.

Not sure it'll be running that early, plus a 2k walk will loosen & wake me up nicely.

Who else can I target to enter?

Fairly sure it was running pretty early for the ITU last year.

Have you get Stennard interested yet?

100 days to go apparently, I'm doomed, longest swim has been 2.4k, hardly ran for 5 weeks with injury, and longest bike so far has been ~64k. It could be an unpleasant race at this rate.

Still loads of time Jeff. I haven't done more than a 2k straight swim in the pool so far, and one ride over 100k. Longest run is 10 miles. I'm not worried, as long as I start ramping up after Easter.

After Philís doom and gloom on IMUK I may have looked at flights to Hamburg Razz Very Happy
youíre doing a good job of selling it but canít justify the cost this year.

Almost last chance to enter!

Faster than Bolton by a mile.
