    Transit, I heard it was a bit hilly?

    This is one i was also looking to target in 2009.

    Stepping up from Sprints and an Olympic this year - any tips?????

    I posted a while back that it was hilly cos a mate did it in 2005 and it was a monster. I found out since they've moved it - 2006 I think and now it is pretty flat.

    Tips? hmm, I did my first one down at The New Forest two weeks ago and it couldn't have gone better. The main things I found were practising fuelling long before the race, being able to stomach loads of gels and energy drinks is sometimes not as easy as it looks. Secondly is sensible pacing - know before hand what HR you're gonna work at and also how you should be feeling so you can reconcile the two. Other than that, just don't think about it too much and make sure you do enter one, cos it is brilliant!
