Nerves kicking in

The nerves are starting to kick in over the event at the weekend. Note how I am not referring to it as a race.

I've started to write a list of the things that I need for the triathlon and I never write lists.

Could someone who has done a tri or two have a look at the list below and let me know on here or via Twitter if I have forgotten anything.

I really want this event to go off without a hitch so your input is greatly appreciated.

  • General
    • Drink
    • Bottle
    • Transition bag
    •  Normal Clothes
    •  Flip flops

  • Swim
    • Trisuit
    • Wetsuit
    • Goggles
    • Swim hat
    • Compressport calf guards
    • Watch
    • Bodyglide

  • Bike
    • Shoes
    • Gels
    • Drink
    • Helmet
    • Glasses
    • Socks

  • Run
    • Trainers
    • Drinks bottle
    • Sport beans
    • Achilles support
Thanks for your help,



  1. I started doing a response to this them it got quite lengthy for a comment field so put it on my blog here...

    Hope it helps! Don't be nervous - you'll get round and learn loads! The main thing is to try and enjoy it!

    Good luck!

  2. Hi Michael.
    Been "stalking" you on twitter for a while as you got a similar story to mine (gave up smoking September last year and went straight into marathon training). I also got a first ever triathlon event in 2 weeks (only a baby one though - Copenhagen 4:18:4), so I'd be interested if you come back with any experience after the event for building my own prep list.. Cheers, and good luck!
