(First of all, this is a long post, I apologise in advance!)

In case you hadn’t noticed (hard not to, what with my incessant Tweets and Facebook updates!), this weekend saw my first opportunity to don the Great Britain age group team trisuit and compete at the European Duathlon Championships in Limerick, Ireland.

After a cramped but bearable (and cost effective!) car / ferry journey to Limerick, we checked into the Maldron Hotel on the outskirts of Limerick (a great find by Rach – and very accommodating to three athletes arriving with a truck-load of kit) and got the bikes squared away.

We decided to take a quick shake down of the bikes to check the journey hadn’t affected the gears etc.  As we were leaving, I spotted my seat post had dropped a touch and made the decision to raise it back up.  Mistake.  Drama #1 ensued as we were unable to get my seat post bolt to hold and it kept slipping back down.  A little swearing and much brute force later, we did manage to get it tight and even took the risk of raising the seat 5mm or so (Mark had previously noted he thought I was too low on the bike).
