Pedro's T1 sounds like the sort of thing I have nightmares about!

Spraggz that's an awesome run split. 11:08 after all that is amazeballs. Sounds like a very small shard in your tyre ruined your day? Best of luck for Wales. 👍

Thanks Wheezy, my first thought was along the lines of 'That's my day done' but then I thought if I don't try and get going I will be even more disappointed. I think the stress probably had a knock on effect for my day but I got round which ultimately is what it was about for me.

Jorgan - it wasn't for me but will be.

Well done all of you and some really impressive times.

My nightmares always involve either missing the start, or a complete T1 drama.

I've had IM nightmares before. The last one was a couple of weeks ago and involved swimming along the pavement from my hotel Confused

I hadn't even eaten pizza the night before! Very Happy

My nightmare almost came true, it's always been a T1, I walk in to see the leaders there, trouble is they have finished the bike already, Sunday morning, sit down to put my wetsuit on, right next to Craig Twigg (or a very good lookalike), luckily he wasn't in bike kit.

11:09 for me. TBH I was hoping for much quicker, but the kids all came down with vomitting bug the week before and stomach cramps the whole way put pay to a good time, but still enjoyed the day.
I think I came into T2 at the same time as Jorgan (with Jo Carritt) who both went off like steam trains.
Great event as always. Well done all

Indeed you did. Unfortunately my steam ran out somewhat by the time I got back for lap 2 of the lake. I spent most of the bike near Jo Carritt, but after she (re)caught me at the end of lap 1, she dropped me like a turd. I was still feeling pretty good when I called out to you on the bridge ramp (you on way out, me back), but my early pace obviously caught up with me.

I think I probably need to walk the early aid stations in order to rein in my wayward pacing.

Looking at this as possibly my first full distance next year. Ideally I'd like to do a fast course but Barca timing doesn't really suit and the logistics of getting here are a fair bit easier.

I've done the half here and went around 4.39, few rookie mistakes with not drinking enough and wasn't my best day anyway, not a great lead into it. I'd like a course with a good chance of a sub 10 time, I know it's next to impossible to predict but would the full at outlaw be considered a fast course? I might only get the chance to do one over the next few years so want it to be as fast as possible really. I've looked at the times and not a huge amount finish under the 10 hour mark but not being from the UK I don't recognise any of the names so have no idea really of the standard who do it.

Its quite a amateur field with no "kona" hunters so the that is part of the lack of sub 10. Still plenty of fast guys but its a very much "first timer" event.

The course is also very honest. Its very flat but not very fast. It can be effected by wind and lots of corners and junctions scrub speed off.

It is fast, just not very fast.

The marathon course is also very honest, being a rare official distance marathon (can be used as a qualifier!) so no time bonus for a short course!

I would definitely say Outlaw is your best sub-10 course if you want a big well organised event. Bolton & Tenby are only sub-10 for the very best AGers. Roads are still crap of course, but not much climbing; the run is soul destroying around that lake, but them's the breaks.

Now Challenge have taken over at Regensburg, and made it a flatter 3-loop bike that's also a prime sub-10 course, and the roads are infinitely better = free speed. It's also the Euro Champs next year, so you'll get a good sized field there.

When us pioneers did the first Outlaw, motivation on the run around the lake was provided by the Hooetrs aid station. Very Happy



(it didn't really work Sad )

Would anything work on that stretch 'up' the lake? A pack of rabid dobermans?
