    Well done Zac.

    Shame i misswed you did look for you on Saturday but the 3.00 briefing was so jammed i had to go to the 4.00 one.

    i completed the Iron Distance Outlaw in 14.27.09.

    Swim 01:06:12 (Another new PB!)

    T1 00:11:07 (Full change for comfort)

    Bike 06:59:06 (Chuffed to beat 7 hours and average 17mph but need to improve)

    T2 00:07:47

    Run 06:02:54

    As you can see the run was my downfall as i got severe knee pains from my IT bands.

    But dug in walked - ran when i could and finished.

    Thanks guys

    A simple, silly mistake could have cocked up the entire day and months of prep - big lesson learned. I seem to recall commenting in one post about the importance of maintaining electrolyte balance as well - sheesh. :roll:

    What blew me away was the support, I couldn't beleive it when I got to Lowdham island and saw all these people cheering us on; support crew, volunteers and other competitors were outstanding, smiles, encouragement it just made feel so proud to be part of this community which is at heart downright decent.

    GHarv - same here went to the 4pm briefing as well, I was sat by the window and asked a question about the dry sack, had my forum T on. Shame about your ITs you were doing well but you toughed it out - spot on.

    Forgot to mention in IMUK there were comments about running past the chute, in the Outlaw we ran past it twice and at the second time it was a real killer to be digging your heels in for the last go round and have someone just a few feet away going down the chute, but hey we are triathletes, we do what has to be done.
