How do you lot manage it?

I read some posts, enjoy the answers and some how I am lulled into overconfidence... Ohh I would love to do an ironman... Maybe I should start with a 1/2 first... I mean I have done a few Sprint tris before and haven't drowned... You lot have some sneaky ways to get to folks.... Now I have 42weeks and a day to become a sleek hydro and aerodynamic athletic machine. Failing that I will be happy to chug round and not die!

  • It's a gift image you'll be fine - if I can do a HIM feeling like a dogs breakfast anyone can!

  • It's 41 weeks and a day isn't it?!?

    I've been suckered in too. Will be posting in the cr@p swimmers thread as soon as I get my breath back from last night's lesson (2 lengths without stopping is almost 1.2 miles by my calculations image)

    I'm pretty sure Robin Hood never had to swim up and down a rowing lake!

  • Arrrrhhhhh I have lost a week of training already!
  • Which one have you both signed up for.  I am slowly getting suckered in.  Did 1/2 this year, vowed never again immediately afterwards, but already want to do another and 'thinking' of a full too.  Must have lost my marbles.

  • 42 weeks ? Probably just enough time to get some much sought after Pirate race kit - keep an eye out on the thread.



    Welcome onboard.
  • Half Outlaw. Sounds easy compared to the full one but that's like saying a Porsche is cheap compared to a Ferrari. I'm more of a X reg Ford Focus with a funny noise coming from the engine compartment

  • Ah right.  I have a sneaky feeling that is already full as well, so well done on getting in.  I am so tempted with a full distance, beginner friendly Ironman though.  Might be Cotswolds 226.  I did Marlow this year - hardest thing I've done in my life.  Had to dig deep and have a few words with myself several times, in order not to give up.  Felt like selling my wetsuit, bike and tri suit immediately afterwards, but the next day I was already analysing the race and knew what I had to work on and do for my next one (ha ha ha).

    Good luck with the Outlaw Half.  It must be good as it's so popular.  Bet it will be amazing.

  • mmmmuuuuaaaarrrrr!!!!! Don't forget there are plently of other cool races out there. image
