I have picked up loads of tips on the forum over the past 18-24mo, but never really asked a question... so please be gentle!
Having completed three middle distance events, the alignment of the planets (aka family commitments) looks set to permit the full ironman distance this year. However, it is Forestman that I have plumped for (gulp!) and am looking to fit in a half distance event as part of the training. Fink suggets putting this in around week 22, but I can't find anything around then, prob as water temp going to be 'nippy'.
So what do others think about how close you can get away with doing a half, or is it best to just forget about it and stick to swiming lots, running lots and repeatedly biking stupid distances come rain, hail, wind, sleet and snow?
Any comments greatfully welcomed...
