Was only looking for a Half Ironman through. Are you on a 6 day week? Can't you swap hours over there?

I knew you said half iron, just being a dim witted postie, ignore me and I might go away. Toonie express in Lincolnshire put on loads of good trail races after xmas, so I shall be having a bash at them and also the 30k stamford race in Feb.
Im on a 5 day week and they have already told me I can't have the dambuster or vit off, so have had to put in for unpaid leave. I will try and wangle it off for the Beaver. Do you knof if the Beaver fill up quick?
I am seriously thinking of biting the bullet and entering the Outlaw solo, it would mean I would have to stick to the fink plan.
Sorry cake here hope you don't mind the confution but on sarah's laptop and can see the point of logging out and in again.

Thats rubbish matey ((hug)) Not done the beaver but heard it will take a bit to fill up. If you do outlaw solo what would be your weak point of the three? I think you can do it it's just a question of time and stuff.
Cake I did laugh, whats my week point, can I say all three!!
Told my OH that i'm thinking of entering Outlaw solo, his reply was 'well you know your gonna be out there for a very long time, don't you? lets face it your mara is 4hrs and god know what your gonna take to do the swim and the bike' encouragement or what? I hate the fact that he is just soo good a tri..hurrmph
yep next time!
alright people...been a while....anyway to RP...and BB plodder....expecting to be out there for a long time is just fine....if you know my story i know whats its like to be out there for a long time...first IM was 13.5 hours....BEFORE i had to pull out....2nd IM i reached the finish line in 16.08...but so what?? i loved every minute and got my moneys worth...read my race reports....you'll love it do just do it.Long days training are well worth it too.....so get em in....as are long rides....if you've never done the distance before DONT leave it till the day.
Great race reports Andy, certainly hits home the size of the task we are undertaking.
Well Done mate, you showed amazing guts and determination
Andy, yep!! It does stand for Blackburn. For my sins, I'm Blackburn born and bred!! although I live near Whalley these days, if you know where that is.
I would definitely be up for some training rides in the Spring. some company would be great
Hi Frodo, I remember getting told off for that too .
I'd love to do it again, but unfortunately I'm away visting family over Christmas and New Year. Pity really, as it was a great way to blow the cobwebs away after the festive period. Are you doing again?
I think so - it's a really good kick up the behind to start the year off with (this year's gave me a whole new level of PW for a half and made sure I upped my game for Helsby three weeks later!)
Andy, it's up just north of Preston

.just hope I've got what it takes to get to the finish chute at The Outlaw.
Once you get 10-12 hours in, it is sheer force of will that keeps you going.
If you want it enough, you'll get to that finishing line!!

Andy, it's a really good local event, well organised and friendly. I would definitely recommend it . I think a few hundred did it this year
