Has anyone tried the new 226ers stuff? I am going with a syrup of High5 energy source on the bike and will take water plus some bars but on the run will be using the on course kit.

One thing I have just noticed and worth pointing out to you all. Their isotonic drinks contain beta alanine. For those who haven't; used this stuff, its a bit odd. Its supposed to buffer lactic acid, but it makes your skin tingle and feels funny. Think it can cause other probs. Something to think about it if you are planning on using that.


Hmm, not sure I like the idea of something that is going to make my skin feel tingly when I'm already not feeling 100% Shocked

I notice that on the bike course, they are giving out coke and isotonic in bike bottles, but water is going to be in 750ml Buxton Spring bottles with sports caps. In the past I've used an aero bottle that I've topped up on the go, so not too much issue if the bottles aren't standard bike bottles. Hopefully these will fit snuggly in a standard bike bottle cage.


No and I would imagine a lot of people are going to be surprised and worried by that. Also seems a pointless thing to be putting into a race drink as, as I understand, its similar to creatine and needs a load phase to work properly.

I have a refill aero bottle so will dump the water in and chuck the bottle straight away, then add the syrup.

I remember a very noisy Irish bar one year when Munster were winning the Heineken Cup final!

I try really hard to forget, but Chelsea won the Champions league final when I was running. Kept up to date by asking the drunkards who were half watching the match half the race.

Tempted to join until I realised who was going to win....

Jeez, it makes you feel old when your race number gets bigger every time you go back Wink

I guess it's not helped by the number of "All World Athletes". More gold hats to swim through at the start Rolling Eyes

Longest run yet today, just under 3 hours. Another 6 hour bike on Sunday. I have to say the hardest part of IM training is the boredom. 6hrs at 67 IF, yawn. In some ways looking forward to having it over with and going to back to some speedy stuff. Miss terrorizing bike groups on the flats at 800W.

Perfect lanza training weather. Minus the wind of course. Did a 6HR bike ride yesterday. Went too hard and my brick run was a nightmare after. Lesson learnt.

One last week of peak then taper starts. My first IM I hope it's usual at this point to completely doubt you can do it?

It should be good heat acclimatisation training this weekend.

Got to say I don't miss the 6 hour bike rides or 2-3 hour runs for an IM.

Hope you'll be posting your numbers up before the race for tracking.

Eeek....it's all getting close now. Just saw on FB that they are setting up the tents on the beach already (with some photos). Athlete guide is now also available.

They also released a teaser video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=8&v=MedIsDyrF6o

Managed to get my last longer ride in today (due to attending a wedding over the weekend). Good heat acclimatisation ~26C and almost full distance, but came to the end of my loop and decided I'd been out long enough Very Happy. Think that was the first long ride I've done without a jacket/jersey or overshoes....amazing what a difference some nice weather makes. The only downside was I lost my water bottle tool case thing (pinged out at some point and I must have failed to hear it drop)....led to about 100k of puncture paranoia Wink.

The lake will have warmed up a lot over the weekend so should make the swims more pleasant too.

I'll start a list for anyone interested in tracking....

Code:
