Swim 2 hours swim/bike 10 hours total 16 hours. Basically unless me or bookie have a bad day you will not have to worry on the run.

I've done something naughty on the Outlaw 2014 thread...

2 hours for the swim

8 hours for the bike

7 hours for the run

Any time saved on the previous one/two will obviously alter how much time you have As a minimum though, you'll have 7 hours for the marathon

No date set yet, but it's likely to be towards the end of July to avoid Tour madness!

That's assuming it's me and bookie mind. Come on you lot I've got enough medal's from this dam race.

Say Cheese, and Tri

Bookie, explain to Cake that he really wants to do this.

End of July is fine and that's plenty of time even for me.

 Oh I want to do it just don't want to hog a team. Anyone else interested?

16/07/2013 at 15:21

I don't think there's anyone else on here who does much cycling... yet

 If there was we could ask Caz if she wanted to do a swim and get two team's going?

 I've killed a thread again havn't I?

I have no idea what my cycling will be like next year mate, so I don't want to commit myself to it (is it a hilly course by the way?).  Depending on how a wetsuit affects the swim, I can maybe just do the swim time I think, but I haven't trained to that distance yet.  The other challenge is that it would have to be breaststroke at the moment and I'm trying to get away from breaststroke  'cos it messes my knee up. I'd rather wait until I can swim a sustainable front crawl.

In Mundany news, I have taken Skippy (the red bin) and also my green bin (name pending) to be emptied.

Dude I've breaststroked a full IR before if any help. Well one conpleated and one DNF. The bike course isn't hilly at all and only one hill of note on the whole thing at Oxton bank if you know it. The run is very flat.

Happy to do any part of the course.

16/07/2013 at 16:29

I think I'll stick with the run next year. with the plan to be able to do either of the other 2 stages the year after.

 Or all three the year after? mmmuuuuaaaaarrrrrr!!!!!!

Right it's a lovely day and I need to do some gardening so home time.

Just to confirm (seeing as Cake has a penchant for saying mountains are flat...) - the bike course isn't hilly. I've not cycled all of it, but I have cycled around Nottingham and driven part of the route (on a Cake hunt!) and it's a nice course

Another reason to crawl for a triathlon - it tends to leave your legs a lot fresher for the bike. And the fresher the legs, the better!

That's cool Sarah, I know your lovely fella has a rep when it comes to hills.

Would love to do stuff like that but am trying, yet again, to get back into running.  Planning an attempt at running club tonight.  The current heat certainly doesn't help though.

Can't we have a special.seasonal sweating emoticon for use during the heatwave?

I think I've fallen into a parallel universe.  This thread used to talk about bins, cheese and cups of tea, but now it is full of swim, bike, run speak.

When I got off the ferry, did I not come back to the UK?

16/07/2013 at 18:04

No, you took a wrong turn into a parallel universe.  Here, 'mundane' is a term for sporting activity, but I understand they talk a lot about bins, cheese and tea over on the 'athletic' thread.

16/07/2013 at 19:18

If it's any consolation, I want to name the team after Marmite...

Worrying isn't it? Just to redress the balance, it is bin day here tomorrow and I am doing a survey on my eating habits for 3 days where they seem very focussed on when I have eaten cheese.

I am loving some of the Outlaw team names, but will not be taking part in any kind of relay whatsoever!
