  • A little late for that now dont you think?

    I know you were drinking in Marlow btw ... I have CCTV   image

  • Hi gang. *waves to Meldy*.



    Thought I might gatecrash this thread if you don't mind. Although I have no Ironman plans at the minute I have a couple of reasons why this thread interested me.

    1. I live in Norfolk

    2. I have just bought a bike, taken up swimming, joined a tri club and signed up for my first (super spring in a pool) triathlon.



    Although I am completely new to tri I have run a little bit in the past.
  • Sprint - not spring!
  • Hi Spoons.  Welcome aboard.

    "Although I have no Ironman plans at the minute............." I suggest you get some, before gas does it for you!!

    When's your tri?

    Oooooh.  Can you put it on youtube?

  • Welcome spoons. 'no ironman plans at the minute'. Classic, this time next week you will probably be signing up for IMUK in 2013, lol



    I live in Norwich. Which club have you joined, i'm with Tri-Anglia.



    My next Tri is Fritton Lake in a couple of weeks.
  • Triathlon is 15th July. Should I mention I should have been swimming tonight but I'm drinking instead image
  • 15th July, Victory Tri?



    I'm doing that, i used to live in North Walsham, my mum still lives there.
  • I didn't have plans to swim, but am drinking too.  And watching the rather lovely specimens in The Two Towers.

     

    NO, not Gimli.

  • Yep Victory tri



    I used to live in NW too!



    NR - must be those hobbits then?
  • Small world.



    Victory will be a good one, I've done 2 events organised by active outdoor sports this year & both have been great, really friendly atmosphere.

  • At least you're not watching CCTV of me image, got to watch that M...eldy, she's a sneaky witch image

  • Hi Spoons Welcome aboard image.

    I'm sure in the near future you'll be wishing you never stopped to chat, that will be the same time your signing up for your first IM just to make Gas happy, and get him off your back image

  • NR - not the hobbits then? image



    BrokeBTing - the honest truth is I like marathons , I've been on my bike about 3 times, the longest ride was 28 miles, and I liked that.



    But - I don't really like the swimming. It's too much like hard work image
  • Your LOTR list is gradually getting shorter.  You'll get there eventually image

    Stick with the swimming.  You'll soon be gliding gracefully and efortlessly through the water, just like the rest of us.

     

  • Orcs?
  • On the subject of swimming, we had an interesting discussion about lube last night........



    Nah, best not go there again

    Rafi ... I have Marlow in my sights as we speak!

  • Got it in one.  And all three of the lovely boys too.  Well done image

  • Can you tell I don't go for the overly groomed look?

  • overly groomed implies vainity to me

  • or, maybe im just scruffy image

  • All 3 at once? image



    Meldy - think I'll do my pool tri first before making a bigger commitment
  • Back to the subject of drinking.

    Do most people bin it while training for an event?
