Half Outlaw - so whos gonna be up for it ? june next year at HPP. nice warm up for the full one
is it not a bit close to the full one though, if its in June? Wouldn't early-mid May be better? Cold but better timing?
DK - do you have insider knowldge?? has it been confirmed? I might be mad enough to enter that
didn't see you today by the way, but I had a great time and was 9 mins faster than in May, so really pleased - most of the time came off the run
I might be tempted.
I am going to have a go I think - just need to work on the bike, swim and run and I will be fine
saffy - same here, but given I can cycle 25 miles, just need to work up from there, oh, and figure out how to drink while I am cycling....
76 lengths of a 25m pool
I've not heard anything about this?! I think I'd be up for that!
I missed the news!
excellent DK - I may be crazy but am going to do it
hopefully we'll get to know a date soon. Might make it my A race for the year
date wrong for me.same weekend as Enduroman and too close to Bala
If it`s on, i`m in. Entries closed for the full Outlaw before i was ready to commit (financially and wanted to wait until after my first tri next Sunday). June would be good for me.
seren - how do you know what date it will be?
Now I am keen on this one. Half the distance means half the training so hubby can't complain at that ..... surely!!!!!
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOWWWWWWWWW!!!!!!!! 2nd June is my birthday!! Defo man.
IF it is the 2nd, will it actually be too close to the full? You would have thought they'd set the date to fit with a 'conventional' plan for the full, no?
Have missed out on the opportunity for outlaw for a number of reasons and as me and hubbie wanted to do it decided to hold back as financially too stretching but a half 2nd of June sounds very tempting wonder when this will open entries we could both do this and half the price and then plan for the full next year
I've already shelled out £250 for the big one, and for that reason, I'm out
5 weks before is plenty of time............most pirates did bala 3 weks before IMCH when I did it and i beleive the previous year they only had 2 weeks between bala and IMF...............but with 2 weeks you have to ecide whether to race it or use it as a training pace event.........
5 weeks is when you will be at your peak training so can't see the problem........seems ideal to me......
I agree ... 4 or 5 weeks out is more than enough recovery time from half to full, if you dont recover from a 1/2 IM in that time IMO your training is all wrong
How can 5 weeks out be to close to the full? Surely 5 weeks out is perfect timing, most of you will (or should be) doing 5/6 hour training sessions in the 4-8 weeks before the taper starts. Aside from that, if youre entering it as a prep event you shouldnt necessarily be racing it eyeballs out as if it was your A race.
