lol.. yes WND not sure i can get away with 9 stone .. i'll be more than happy to hit 13...
Now GB has found me some reasonable local hills to practice on i should be able to knock a bit of the bike time for next year ... then if i can get my legs to co-operate and run i reckon theres half a chance of making last orders.
WND, for Pirate kit.. you need to add your name on the relevant list on the PSOF kit thread
for Pirate logo .. send a PM to "Alice RW" requesting
If you're in transition M.Tri, maybe u can get me out quicker than 27 mins this time lol
Have been looking on the IMWales website, cos someone said the swim was South Beach - it just looks like they've left the old course map up. If they're doing LCW off the North Beach, I'd bet my bottom dollar they'll keep it for IMWales too. Well, I hope so anyway - it was awesome!
FB - who said I was worrying?
All I remember is that the swim combined with the run to transition was one of the most amazing expereiences of my life and it'd be nice to do it again.
And it was also downright funny too! 1000+ athletes running through Tenby in various states of rubber dress, goggles and wet suits!
And actually FB I hadn't thought about the way it shook your legs out for the bike, but yes, it did prepare you for the bike really well.
Thanks a lot for your comments FB and Pingu, coming from a veteran and a first timer makes great input.
I completely agree that the run to T1, even short ones, makes for great post swim preparation. I can see the arousal impact running to your bike while cheered on for 1km can make! I really hope they keep it the same way since we can use all the help we can take hehe.
It's gonna be an honour to go into transition to be helped by the people who inspired me to do this particular race! /bow
What the hell have we done?? A moment of madness,a pint to far or perhaps an early mid life crisis clouding our judgement. Two weeks ago everything was fine life was normal, and training was just done as a bit of fun in the evenings with a buddie of mine.. but oh nooo a bright spark has entered us into the ironman next year.
Anyone with any tips guidance or words of wizdom of where to start please share this way..cycling is not the problem as we race and have done quite well in competition over short and long distance its just everything else that goes with the ironman especially swimming !! what the..
Watching from a distance this year was admitably inspirational especially walking into the pub and back out to watch some more ..but entering is a bit touching cloth different at this moment..
If we have a yoda out there to pull us from the darkside all words of wizdom would be grateful!!
Have a look at the outlaw / fink thread - its rapidly becoming the ewbie / geneal IM training thread of 2012.
Even though those guys and gals are going early, you wil be going hard, so it could be worth jumping in there, reading back, and using that for general training help / support.
This thread will be great for race specific stuff at IMW, but there are more people training for outlaw........
Thank you o.range cannon & mr Buddah Finishing is all that I am after it just was amazing to watch last year so to be in it will be something else..Training is starting as soon as this everlasting flu has gone
Will have a look for the pirate kit thread..Thank you
