My half I think I just used gels and energy drink on bike to take around 300kcal/hour. My full was much more solid food through early bike - jam sandwich and bars. Running Iím stretching to manage two gels an hour, although IM was bit easier to take in some sweets/banana at lower intensity. Still work in progress to fuel the run, but so far coped fine by having enough energy in play before starting

General question about this thread; I assume it's a mix of people aspiring for sub-11 and those who've been there?

Pardon my pedantry but doesn't that cover everyone?

Well not if you've no realistic expectation of going sub-11. Hence the aspiration aspect; sub-11 is beyond the reach of most Iron-distance finishers, statistically (one study had average time of 12:35).

Fair point. I would have thought if you weren't aspiring to go sub 11 then you wouldn't be contributing to the thread.

I think youíll find itís mainly for PCP and myself to tell each other what we havenít done. Needless to say, this week has been a bit thin so I need to make up for it over the next 2 and a half days. Rolling Eyes

I would say I don't fit either of those Categories but still have something to give to the thread.

I am not planning on going Sub 11 anytime soon or have I actually achieved it, But I got bloody close in Copenhagen (11:09) and when I do return it will be My Target (assuming I don't pick a Stupid race, such as Norseman)

I certainly had the ability just didn't pull it off on race day. I also used this thread when training for Wales when I knew I wouldn't go Sub 11, but for me, a Sub 12 at wales is a similar achievement and training goal.

Alright dudes, how are we all, it's been a while!

So, I was talked into The Outlaw next year, after a few years of sitting on the sofa and occasionally failing to run and ride. Somehow, probably because I'm an idiot, I found myself looking at this thread and thinking Yeah, sub-11, that seems like the right kind of goal

I've just gone through Training Peaks and set myself up with a plan for the rest of the month, based very much on high frequency and relatively low duration.

I'm currently 94kg's, so a good 22 over last time I did anything like this, so that's got to go.

My biggest concern at the moment is getting injured by getting carried away, especially running; hence the short, frequent, runs to try and remind my legs how this all works.

Time will tell how it all goes.

I even looked at my TT bike the other day. It really needs some TLC.

Welcome back. I don't actually know you from your original time on the forum, but I found your reappearance just now rather amusing given Gus only posted the below last week, when a spammer reactivated one of your old threads...

Been once but not sure I have much to offer yet. If so go long next year would like to update the sub10 thread with yourself and YKK for accountability.

Can I assume the same about people contributing to TT threads? Very Happy

I have no hope of even going sub 12 these days but I figure thereís always something to learn from those who are faster.
