    Hi Dave Boy

    I'm doing it, well attempting to do it! i did a 4 hour bike yesterday and nearly killed myself! This will be the longest race i've done so it's going to be a 'just finish' rather a 'race', so i'll plod my way around. I'm doing it as part of my build up to Ironman UK later this year, but after this i might decide i was mad to even think i could do an ironman! good luck with the race, if you see someone struggling round on a bright orange trek bike, thats me, give me a few words of encouragment, i'll need them[:)]

    Hey Dave

    was my first event at this distance so i was hoping to do it in under 6 hours. managed 5 hours 42 so very pleased with myself. i took it really easy and felt completely fine after and no soreness so i'm straight back into training for ironman in september. Was freezing on the bike! but the run was nice and cool, i'm quite glad it wasnt baking hot, gave me a chance to try out nutrition/hydration for ironman. you're time is brilliant! i saw some guys in boxfit kit, but i only read your message this morning! I'm not with a club, do all my training on my own as i work strange hours to fit in with my other halfs shifts. i love the bigcow events, the guys sure know how to hold an event[:)] are you doing the MK tri next weekend?
