cheers guys, I'll stick with the 2014 Ironman date though.
Build up to a half marathon in November, half IM & olympic distant Tri's next year
Any reccomendations for a half IM venue?
Doing this cheeky little number as well in September, The Great Barrow Challenge. 4 days x 125 mile cycle rides http://www.greatbarrowchallenge.co.uk/
ironholgs, legend, loved his book.
I've just set up an FB page as well for those who go on there. Quite often find it a good platform for keeping up to date with stuff https://www.facebook.com/groups/287319678021088/#!/groups/287319678021088/

You two are cr@p at maths!!! 2012 + 12 months = 2013... Got it yet? Really?!?At this rate you lot are going to be my sherpas...Now pull yourselves together and get with the programme P.S. have you bought you obligatory copies of "Be Iron Fit" yet?P.P.S. have u signed up to volunteer at this years outlaw?
June - crap not that far... Lakeside Triathlon, but i'm getting ready to walk the Edinburgh Marafun first, so it's going to be a bit of crash course in the three weeks between!
note - crash course being the operative word, I plan to learn how to ride with clipless pedals in that timeframe!
Be Iron Fit - book by Don Fink, seems to be what most use to train for IM
Both Raf and I hope to break our cherries on IM in 2013 (along with you GovtFunded, Nurse and HellsBells23)
Strange isnt it. Marathon dosen't really appeal to me either but the whole IM challenge does. I did the London marathon in 2006 without proper training, due to a knee injury (running in crap trainers). Ruined my feet & didn't run again till last year. Put me completely off.
It's the main reason why i have a long timescale till the IM, make sure i build up slowly & train properly.
I will do a half marathon this year & a full one in 2013 though, be nice to know i can actually complete one without similar issues.
Greetings Silver Trucker.
Hellvellyn Tri sounds intriguing. Hiked up it numerous times in my younger days, one of my favourite walks in the lakes.
Best i order a copy of this book then.
Just back from a 41 mile bike ride, Sunny when i went out, chucking it down and bloody freezing by the time i got back. Shorts was a bad call.
