Entry is done, but yikes, Covid payed me a visit, so short on proper hilly rides, to give me any sort of confidence for what this event throws at you.....not sure if I'll make the start line.  I mean, I cramped and took shots in all of my previous attempts, when I was a lot fitter, so can only imagine the whip will be biting early on this year !

18 days still to go, more than enough time to sharpen that blade 😉

Thanks for the concern - been given the green light, although not a full medical assessment in the true sense of the word. That said, I made the decision on the weekend to rather opt out.  It is such a stunning event, but I maintain, one of the toughest marathons I have done.  After doing all the previous versions, and having a fair amount of suffering at one stage or the other during them, I foresee that I am a little undercooked in preparation, and this is not an event you want to line up for, not 100% ready.  Best of luck to all of you, hopefully back for 2022 !  #goodtimes

oh dear

i think the realisation that my eyes were bigger than my legs has caught up to me.

Guess i gotta be like the sprinters in the mountain stages of a grand tour. Hang out in the grupetto and make the time cut

 

Edit: Whats the time cut?
