    i think i saw a post somewhere prior to the 12 asking if he'd mapped the route right though, so strictly following what was on his Garmin must have seemed logical at the time, but i agree they are definitely self made bad luck, i believe they are what NFL teams call thinking errors....

    i think once hes in a race he just goes full gas till he finishes, he knew hed been DQ'd from ironman wales this weekend for littering and still went on, running a 2:52 marathon despite the fact its less than 4 weeks from Kona so will now spend several weeks recovering and wont even have got paid for his exertions.... and probably wont do well enough in Kona to get paid either as a result*

    *hopefully he does as it looks like he's had a crap year with injuries and to get dq'd from two races is pretty unlucky even if they were both technically his own fault.

    Bristol half today, well organised, tricky course with a nice out and back for the first 8 miles and then zigzagging though the city centre for the last 5 miles.

    Went out having only run 2 times per week since June and longest run about 16km, sat with 1:35 pacer for 8 miles and then just drifted off in front and ran to feel, finished in 1:33:02, nothing special but a good step in rebuilding my enjoyment of running and confidence having really struggled in the marathon of Ironman Austria in July!

    is anyone able to tell me the type of bearing needed for Prime RD011 hubs?

    https://www.chainreactioncycles.com/prim­e-rd010-rear-hub-bearing-kit/rp-prod1451­31

    never been overwhelmed by the bearings in there but mine deffo need replacing and i don't want to use the standard ones if possible.

    New 1 lap bike course, really nice loop first up, second loop (apparently the original loop) wasn’t anywhere near what I expected, felt and was a lot slower than the first half!

    Doing the tt’ers proud with my bike position... just a shame I had a massive bike bottle in my back pocket!

    Yes there was a long section of cobbles and my chain came off and it snapped my up front bottle cage so had to down the contents and shove it in my back pocket, probably not very aero!

    Swim was epic, annoyingly non wetsuit but think I couldn’t have gone faster even if it had been, did the first 800m with a clubmate but was being held up so struck out on my own, bike was good bit feet got really sore in the heat, came off the bike in pain but knowing a 4 hour marathon would get me a PB, but I reached my pain limit much earlier than expected as a result, had to lie down a bit on the run as it basically felt like I was running with pins and needles from km 2! So run really let me down with a time of 4:33. Overall 11:29, would do it again but not for a while!

    pretty pleased with it, especially given the big slip back was my Son being born!

    I'm beginning to feel quite stressed about the race, not for me but for the 7 people I've coached to this point, most have really diligently followed the program, and based on Saturdays metric Ironman they are in bloody amazing shape, but you never know!
