As the title says, How do you get rid of those transfer tattoo race numbers??
last year, my first race using these was also my last of the season so I wasn't too fussed about it.
This year I got other events coming up soon and I can seem to get rid of it, I've tried hot water, cold water, olive oil (club friend suggested), dish scrubby and washing up liquid.... but the B****** is still there!!
Any suggestions very welcome (except for sacrificing small animals to the God Racenumbericus - I have limits)

Over the weekend I spoke to a few people I was competing against at the Southport Triathlon, mainly those who finish with me at the tail end of the race while we waited in line to get our official times at the end of the day. One of the Guys I was chatting to described himself as a "Bracketeer". I was a little puzzled and he explained, it someone who has accepted that They will struggle through, barely getting past each discipline before the cut-off or before the broom wagon collects them.
I'll admit I've never heard of a 'Bracketeer' - is it a thing? is anyone else a self confessed Bracketeer?
I'll admit, It would describe my approach if I ever do a full Ironman!

I was wondering if anyone had any good techniques for gauging the gap to a rider in front?
I know the draft zone distance has increased from 7 to 10 metres (and the subsequent time allowed to carry out an overtake) but the last thing I want is to get a penalty for being in 'the zone' too long, especially as I'm doing some hilly triathlons where I might not be able to muster the required speed difference to make the overtake in the time allowed - I seem to catch people very slowly.... if at all especially on hilly or windy courses
Should I use an adaption of the 2 second rule you use when driving? where you see the person in front pas a stationary object and you count "one ellephant, two elephant" or resight "Only a fool would break the two second rule" to yourself and jusdge whether you have reach that same stationary point?
or is there another method?

a couple of Face-down torpedo kick drills normally help me acclimatise, that and shutting my eyes so I don't see the lake zombies.

To be honest no Mark, I trust their products less than their shady pyramid selling system. (personal opinion)

Sadly I don't have any stretch cords with me but I'll focus on the core work - God knows my saggy midrift could benefit from a little focus!
