    Not sure if anyone would be interested but me and sarah have been trying to work out if a hilly sprint or olly might be practical around our end. as a piss up once all these IM's are over. it's a but hilly around here and they have resurfaced some of the roads where the tour is going to go through.   

  • Cakey boy!  Hello image  I like the sound of the piss-up image

  • Ok Let's get this ball rolling I'm going to start a list I will do the Olympic distance on Saturday and The Half on Sunday.        Button mushroom

  • So tempting. So tempting - oh go on then. I'll do both. image

    I'll start a proper list then shall I? image

    We have already had it this year, just debating what to do next year.

    Its always going to be early season.

     

  • Ahh thanks.  Hopefully not the 5th may next time as that's hubby's birthday and no way will I get away with that.image

  • Just tell him to change his birthday Saffers.

    How early will it be SA, because I have IM Lanza in May (as do you, I believe!)

  • don't know yet, ned to get dates from the leisure centre

  • hhhhhhmmmmmm I as I am going to lanza, as is Button, Slagiatt and Pudge.

    was looking at easter weekend but know the pool is closed most of that weekend.

     

    Sooooooooooooooooooo

     

     

     

     

     

     

    How about the weekend after April 25th / 26th 2014 which sits 1 month before Lanza, which I recon is ideal

     

  • Sounds good. image 

  • Week after Easter that, just in case that makes a difference to anyone (i.e. hols). I'll be there to help out at least, not sure what i'm doing tri wise at the mo!

  • Sorry, did Lee just agree to do both the Oly and the Half IM

     

  • Its also 2 months before Nice (Pirate 2014 championships)

    The date is only provisional at the moment, until I've talked to the leisure centre, at which point I will start a new thread

  • Hahaha, enough of that SA! On Sunday i had Cas telling everyone i was doing the enduroman half next year, and for one hideous moment i thought i'd maybe said i was doing it and had forgotten!!!

  • You could do the Enduro half Lee. 10 hours cut-off, short loops for the swim so chance for a breather, lovely bike course with manageable hills, loads of people walking on the run bit, what's not to like? An oly in April would be a good warm-up too. See you at both events next year then. image 

  • Oh god! I am trying to plan my life out, but need to give it some thought, hehehe

  • If Lee's doing the oly and the half then I will too. I reckon mrsMatt will do at least the oly, maybe the halfimage

  • TSA - I'd be interested in coming up for this next year, depending on date.  I'd gladly marshal one day and participate in the other.  I'd be interested in doing the half.  I'll keep my eyes peeled for a new thread (and watch this one too!)

  • Damn you Matt! Lol

  • See Lee, you knew would do it. 

    Yay, Mouse, it's awesome image

    are we there yet?

  • If i accidently forget my swimmers, bike and trainers, i'll be obliged to drink cider and shout "TURN RIGHT!!!" when i actually mean left image

  • Lee the Pea wrote (see)

    I might be able to struggle through a few pints of cider before marshalling everyone the wrong, eh, i mean right way on the course image

    Have you learnt your right from your left yet?? image

    I have, but only if I dont face the bikers, hahahaha image

    Btw did you know that snorkels are allowed in an IM swim?! Not that i'm looking of course.... image

  • Just talking with SA about grub (his favourite subject)  image and we thought instead of sausage butties, how about a chilli with crusty bread, tortilla crisps, rice etc ?
