So..... this may or may not happen. When I was in the middle of my HIM last month I thought "no way will I do an Ironman - what a silly idea that would be".... but it's very easy to forget that feeling and now I am thinking that I have 12 months until Outlaw..... (or 24..... )
But I really need to be sensible about what the training involves as I didn't feel particularly confident going into my HIM and think the Luck Fairy is ever present with me as I just made the bike cut off by 5 minutes....
So how did you all do it? What were your key sessions? What should I know now that I might not otherwise find out until event day?
In terms of my training, I'm going to concentrate on running between now and December to see how I cope with 16-20 mile runs as if they beat me, then I know i can't go on. I'll do a bit of social bike riding and spining to keep the bike legs going, and am going to get an old racer bike to see how I fair on that (my hybrid has been holding me back....!), but won't start serious bike training (20+ mile) until January.
Swimming is a bit less of a problem for me and am hoping to join Seren in her Ironman training in a local river next spring....... I'll also be going to tri club swim sessions.
