Hello all

I just took part in full ironman in south africa, unfortunately i did not complete the race :-(

i was 20 mins late for the bike cut off time and they did not allow me to take part in the run, if they did i would have finished as the the run is my strongest out of the 3. Bike course was tough, hilly and a lot of wind

now i am very eager to take part in another full distance to finish, the only race that falls under the right time is the one in bolton. However i have a feeling its going to be on the same level of difficulty.
i am unsure if 3 months is enough time to ensure i sort the fitness out on the bike.
been trying to figure out why i didnt make it, could be over training prior the race.

if any one has done this race or can compare it to the south africa ironman i would appreciate any advice. this year they changed the route for south africa and decided to add the hills. i understand the bolton has been changed too

After eight long months of training, I’ve finally completed my first ever triathlon and it just so happened to be one of the biggest and toughest events known to the triathlon community, Ironman.

Often it makes sense to race slower in order to finish faster and at the same time have a more enjoyable Ironman Triathlon experience.

During the race there will be plenty of opportunities to exchange bottles, so I'm thinking about going with the aero bottle and Gatorade bottle and fill up as necessary. What should I do?
