Fatman to Ironman



  • image I would do but that limit's the time I have to eat cheese and drink tea. image

  • Just watched a good mate cross the line at IM NZ.  I'm feeling all inspired.  Should probably let the pancakes and bacon settle before I do anything too energetic.

    What are everyone's race plans for this year?  

  • Start when the gun goes off and finish before the clock does   image

  • Hello ladies, hope your well.

    No race plans for me this year, Wish i had time to even ride my bike, working 24/7 at the minute. Once i get into a regular routine should be able to get back to training for something.

    See, there's the evidence I've got the best mentor

  • Anyone been out enjoying todays sunshine?


    Managed to squeeze in a rare 20 mile ride today. Cycling, in shorts, in March?? Leg shaving season here already image

  • Howdy SD

    I'll swap you a leg wax for free coffee. 

    SHORTS ?! I went out for my run in long tights, long sleeved top, jacket, hat and gloves. 

  • Nursey you need to move dahn sarf .....  it was knocking on 19degrees here today  image

  • Ouch, dont think i could handle a waxing image

    Your welcome to a free coffee if your ever in Norfolk though.

    Barmy weather today, was like summer. Probably snow next weekend.

  • I went out on my bicycle yesterday.  First time outdoors since the autumn image.  Beautiful day, cycled for 1¼ hours, and was reminded in no uncertain terms that, "if you don't use it you lose it"!  Really enjoyed myself, but some bits felt much harder than they should have.  The saddle, for starters.
    Swimming is slightly more encouraging.  Did some timed 100m on Monday and have speeded up by 10 seconds since I last timed myself. Happy days image

  • Haha, well done Nursey.

    Agree about the saddle. My ass has been killing me after my first few rides recently. 


    On the plus side, got my training mojo back image

  • Oh, i signed up for the Norwich Half Marathon. One of the few events thats on when i wont be working this year.

    Need to find a cycling sportive now

  • Wonder how gasbag got on doing this yesterday

  • I do t think he did it, saw no mention on FB.

  • Well, I've been to Swimfit tonight and it wasn't nearly as taxing as my efforts earlier in the day - a zombie birthday cake and blood jelly with worms in!

  • image Nurse are there pictures anywhere of this cake? It should like fun.

  • Or swimfit photos image

  • Well, there were very specific instructions that there had to be "a man shooting the zombies with a bazooka so they fall onto the circular saws" ...

  • image That's incredible chuckimage

  • Cheers dear image

  • No swimming, biking or running done today but an hour of walking in the hills instead. Started off a perfect bracing spring day, but managed to get caught in a torrential downpour what had sleet in! Had to have toffee cake to fend off the hypothermia.

  • Does toffee cake also work as a preventative?  

  • Hmmmmmm ... to the best of my medical knowledge, it's never stopped a pregnancy  But if you know different ...

  • I meant for hypothermia you donut  image

  • evening troops.

    Exciting news. Tri plus magazine are doing an article on my Ironman Journey off the back of my blog. I have a photo shoot on Tuesday. Apparently one of the pics will be a double page spread. To fit my belly in i suppose image

  • Being in a magazine is soooooo last year  image

    (But good fun) !!

  • Really Melds? Oh how silly of me image

    SD is going to be a centrefold!  Tell them to be careful where they put the staples.  

  • *chortle*

  • SD make sure they do the photo's tastefully. Your know it's going to be on Meldy's wall for years after otherwise. image
