Oh Frodo - what have you said??

No secret call needed, LB - I'm sure I've been outed already

I already cycle to work but I cannot swim for toffee, and I'm broke. So I am loitering until either of these problems resolve. I did try to teach myself front crawl over the last couple of days, and it went quite well

Look forward to meeting you there Frodo.  Can you swim breast stroke?  You might be able to manage 500m by May if you mix up a bit of breast stroke with front crawl, or you might be able to do it all crawl if you are quick learner.  Its a very newbie friendly event with no pressure on finish time which is why I love it.  If you look at past results you will see that there are plenty of slow swimmers. 

Edit - I did my first 2 tris all breast stroke and wasn't last at either of them. I wasn't the only one either and at Stratford one man walked bits of the swim.  Yes, walked the swim.

I haven't ruled out entering - but I currently have the Sandstone Trail 33miler in the diary for the Saturday. I don't think attempting my first tri the day after would be wise but, if that doesn't happen for any reason, I may come along to play properly. Should know for definite in the next couple of weeks

Sounds sensible Frodo.    Good luck on the 33 miler - eek.
