The trio at the framhouse were joined by Rob from Cornwall. The four reccied the bike course and then went for a short jog. Rob and his family headed back off to their hotel in Bampton and Chris, Emma and Fiona headed for the pub.
Sunday saw James and Lyndon join the group for another scope of the course and a slightly less successful look at the run route. The weather was not kind on Sunday and, after a slight hiccup over meeting up points, the team decided a single lap of the course was sufficient. Still a creditable 35 miles of hills and twists and around 2 hrs 15mins. We will have to improve.
Our quiet Cornishman Rob, an awesome athlete by anyone's standards, completed a second lap on his own.
After a cup of tea, a pasty and a review we all decided it had been a useful meeting with no disasters and we should be pleased. Everyone left with respect for the course and no illusions over what exactly lies in store for the team come June.
