It's surprising how quickly you warm up, isn't it? One you get over the head freeze, that is.
In the quadrathlon last year, I swam beside my friend who was breast-stroking a lot, so she did the sighting!
Right guys, are you all ready for this?
I have a friend who has been a running buddy for quite a while now. 'Twas she who persuaded me to do the Kindrochit Quadrathlon last year, and so we also became swimming & cycling buddies - my partner in crime!
She has just talked me into doing an event for her 40th in 2013.
If His Holiness The Fink says I can do it, it must be true.
Now a question for you - how far in advance is the date usually announced/entries open?
Oh crap, crap, crap, what have I done?
Gastank will be pleased - you are doing an IM in 2013! He was right!
I am weak, weak, weak. All that resistance, and in the end I just caved in! Must be meant to be
It was reading Fink that swayed me. I can get 10 hours training time out of a week. I can and I will.
So do we start training in December?
You just squeezed in before me there ST!
Outlaw 2012 opened for entries around late October and filled up by early December. Id imagine it will be the same this year but id also expect it to fill up more quickly, maybe in a couple of weeks.Best thing is to pre-register once this years event is over then youll get advance notification when entries are going to open. Also watch the forums here as no doubt news will be spread around.
Well, it just gets better and better. Spoke to hubby about Outlaw next year, and about Fink's plan, and he said, "That's do-able, crack on"!
Tri suit arrived today, but I think it's a bit too wee. Have ordered another to compare.
Went to the pool this afternoon and did some pull. Used paddles for some of it, which I haven't for a while due to a sore shoulder. Had forgotten what hard work they are! Still, did 1200m all in so pleased enough with that.
That's what I'm wondering, gastank - how tight is too tight? It takes a bit of getting into, but I can do up the zip no probs. Feels a bit neat around the neck/shoulders/underarms. It's a lovely suit (although never having owned one before, I have nothing to compare it to), but I have to say - bordering on fetish wear. Will see how the one from a different manufacturer fits.
Good swim, SD. I also have those goggles and really like them.
Tried to upload a pic, SD, but there must be a problem with this new forum format............................................
Run with dog in peeing rain, or swap rest day with Saturday?
Funny, I thought that's what you'd say! Conquering the elements it is. Actually, I like running in the rain.
It's not actually raining in Norwich today, something must be wrong.
I was going to rest today & tomorrow but feel i ought to go do a light bike ride.
I havent ridden it since Saturdays issues, plus it had a full service on Tuesday so would probably be wise. Give me peace of mind that all is now well with it, unless something falls off it.
