Hi Everyone! I've been watching the Outlaw thread with interest and wondered is anone on here doing IMUK 2011? The general consensus is that Outlaw is the better event (certainly cheaper!) but for some reason im drawn to the IM event (maybe it's a newbie thing - but im facinated!) So I've preregistered for IMUK2011 and wondered if there was anyone here that wanted to share training tips/ advise along the long training plan to the race itself! After a couple sprints and aquathons i completed my first olympic distance tri last weekend and absolutely loved it - had the time of my life! Broadly targetted 3hrs and come in 2:42, which included a 43m 10K, which i was delighted with. Been facinated with IM for ages and now i really have it in my teeth that it's what i want to do. I have completeed a few marathons in average time(3.50) but this will be a whole new challenge I dont yet have a training plan - it's a full 12 months away, but currently train 8 - 10 hrs a week, I'm very fortunate with the sea on my front door - i can swim OW twice a week! Good workout too with the tide/ currents! Looking forward to sharing in everybody's experiences in the pain and joy in the comming months!
