  • I got on kindle and really enjoyed it. Definitely worth a read An it is STILL all his fault, well his and that bloke Andy... 
  • Morning all, I hiked up Snowdon and across to and over Cryb Goch on Saturday. 7 hours of hiking/scrambling and I am done in. I ache more than after any tri. Also managed to rip the arse out of my leggings sliding down the scree! It definitely was …
  • Ach well unfortunately I'm now both down and out. My knee cap won't hold up to more than 25 miles on the bike and it's just getting worse. So no racing for me this year and apart from Welsh 3000s this weekend (eep!) that's it for training for a whil…
  • Sorry folks I'm out, my knee is just not holidng up. Can't do more than 25 miles on the bike without aggravating it and add in zero run and that's it.  Updated list Soloists Red Stripe Scuba Trooper Silent Assassin Magna Carter Road to Nowhe…
  • Magna Carter wrote (see) Just remember that if you do the training, the event is there for the taking.... The training just isn't happening this year so far, you would think having failed twice now I'd be doing all the training I can get, bu…
  • I have a friend who has them and they are apparently the comfiest flip flops ever... Alibear now ducks and runs for cover
  • Well done DB, I love that Parkrun is now a universal unit of measurement! Hope you pick up a bargin Pete. I'm having my worst year ever training wise, knee means no running so I will be learning to power walk. Work stress means I'm very poorly, …
  • It's cloudy up there ! But a good site, I think I might be getting somewhere now, thanks for the help
  • Thanks Dave I'd been looking on the Cotswold one and found a couple of possibilities but they don't stock them in store so I'd be buying blind hence seeing if anyone could recommend anything. I shall have a look at George Fisher.
  • Sounds tempting, head off for a test hike and some shopping  The outdoor shops in Norwich and Edinburgh were no use, I wasn't surprised by Norwich but I had hoped Edinburgh might have had something.
  • That's the beastie Cougie, we have a support car so we're not taking tents, we'll walk up to the top of Snowden in the early morning to start off the fun So it's just a smaller day pack type that I'm after but water/hydration will be a big one for …
  • Last year when we were practising sea swimming in the UK I invested in one of those chillswim tow floats.  They make you so much more visible and are handy to hang onto if you get a bit out of puff or nervous and need to regroup. 
  • Swim and Bike on Track but still can't run at all. MRI results due next week, I feel a very long walk may be in my future!
  • MC I might have to pick your brains as you seem to be a dab hand an picking nice events now I always find ones with horrid mid point cut offs etc. But best to wait for MRI results next week first I have managed a whole week of swim and turbo ses…
  • I don't think I've done a race yet where I haven't been beaten out of the water by a breaststroker.  I think the downside is that wetsuits can make it a bit restrictive but then a lot of people seem to manage just fine. I commit the crime of using a…
  • Hospital tomorrow, but a week back on swim and bike and I can do stairs without crying which is definite plus.  Although a pull bouy is required for swimming but I wouldn't be the only Pirate to do that      
  • HI all, still pluggin away but did have a week off, the net result of that was a more sore knee! So I've bitten the bullet and thanks to my company's health insurance I'm seeing an orthopedic surgeon on Tuesday.  Does anyone know anything about ar…
  • Still no running but I'm slowly getting into the swim/bike routine. Actually had a n entire lane pretty much to myself on Saturday. Have switched back to my original local pool as it's cheaper and I'm enjoying it more than the punch ups at the uber …

  • I'm still running the Bontrager tubeless system, on my last long training ride I got 6 punctures of the course of 6 hours. 3 in each wheel, the last was the most entertaining as it was front wheel and first I knew was a fountain of glue spraying up …
  • Swam this morning and actually enjoyed it, in a public pool too! Magic must remeber this for the rest of the years sessions where the usual getting swum over/into stuck behind people not wanting to get wet hair resumes...   I must stretch as I'm…
  • Hi all, looks like everyone is doing well.   My knees are still shot so no running but stomach issues are calming down now I'm on a very restricted diet. So some swimming and turbo sessions achieved and I might just be back in the game Knees …
  • Judging by the run attire at barcelona last year I would say sport top does equal sports bra where Ironman are concerned.

  • I ran this morning, well 10 mins of run walk but it's a star. All thanks to my lovely physio who also does acupuncture and did something to give me some energy yesterday. After months of feeling shite I'm actually happy and awake and have energy tod…

  • SteadyCJ I was supposed to start the day doing the same but instead chose a lie in. 
  • FTP test this morning, it's gone up by 2 is that better or worse? Please don't make me do the test again it was just as horrid as I feared.
  • I did a count up yesterday, Outlaw 2016 seems to have 50 places left...
