TT's vs Pirates
If you've a login, go have your say!
All good harmless fun, long may it stay that way.
just been and added my 2 peneth.
Which Fetch chatter is aggressive? Have I missed something? I post over there in the tri forums and never noticed it to be hostile to the pirates?
there's deffo room for us all, mind you between me, wiganer and Fat Buddha there ain't much room for anyone else
Not actually met any fetchies yet, the banter on the tri thread is fine, found a few rude people on the general threads, but there's still plenty of time for me to upset them.
Re tripetalkers - I had a fab supportive cheer from some of them whilst losing the will to live at my first half IM, which definitely gave me a welcome boost, and they always get a cheer from me too.
Was supported very nicely by a Triper at one of my very early tris (Droitwich, 2007).
Always banter with them when I see them at events. We looked after a few at Lichfield last year too and they took the time to logon to here and thank us.
Should this now be the 'go hug a triper' thread?
I did not have a lot to say, but did, so to speak
They claim to be 'better' than us: I bloody hope so as most of us are just rubbish due to not training enough.
If I trained really hard I could be really average at least.
In fact if it wasn't for them we might be the most serious bunch and that would just be wrong.

Been there, had a dump! Feel better now
At IMCH I found all the Tripies great fun - as were the Serpies......and it just adds to the spirit of the event.
It shouldn't be a case of who is better. Just we prefer to wear yellow and black.
tripetalkers are losers.
as self styled underachievers, can you confirm for me that 10 hours training a week is enough to get me through forestman if i enter it next year? or should i wait for a year when i can do more?

you'll be fine on 10hrs mate - many around here get through an IM on less
I hope you're right FB!
Got an IM training program for 10 hours by any chance?!
I think it depends if you include thinking about training, deciding which kit to wear, trying to find your trainers because your wife has 'put them away' again getting dressed to go out, getting undressed because you forgot to put your HRM on, getting dressed again, having a final FINAL coffee, visiting the toilet for the fourth time, warming up, cooling down, showering, bragging about it to your mates in the pub in which case I'm doing stacks of training.
If you only include the actual time exercising then I'm lucky to reach a couple of hours a week
there is a part of me that just fancies turning up on the day to see what happens.
it's the getting home again afterwards that would be the hard part.
