I think I'll pretend I can't count up to 3!

Did't Garr do the first Frankfurt too? '06.

 

edit: Yes, he did, so that's three for Garr.

Attempted one, but yet to succeed!   I shall be back for another try, but not next year, too many other things going on, and I want to improve my running and reduce my weight first.  Then I shall be back and a contender for first prize *

Garr did Nice as well

Garr has done Zurich, Frankfurt and Nice.

He reckons he's going to do IMW next year. I hope he does!

Yeah you'd better keep running!

I'm a little bit late too...is anyone still free as a virtual mentor?

I am 30, SW London, apathetic & slow runner previously, wanted to spend my 30th yr doing something other than enjoying myself far too much...obviously Outlaw was the only option!

(copied off my lonely hearts ad...!)

Work long hrs so fitting training was tough but I've embraced seeing 5am at the beginning rather the end of the day, taught myself to swim front crawl in Jan, didn't die in the rowing lake, spent first 10 mins of the bike crying as a result.

Delighted to 1) survive 2) not fall off bike while still attached 3) finish in 13:26.

I am now completely hooked and want to improve my time and do another iron distance next year.

Anyone want me? (crosses fingers)

GP any idea what IM you are looking at next year?

Oh and 13:26 is a very tidy first time you should knock bags off that next time just by knowing what you are up against

*bounces in*

Oh oh me me please! Am almost doing Outlaw next year (really really want to just need to get head round all that training!)

Have already nabbed Rio (insert MASSIVE grin here)

Am also Midlands and will be a Market Bosworth swimmer (splasher)

Currently 45mins for 1m swim, just back to biking and running with tri to Oly distance and running to marafun under my belt in the past.

Stubborn old fool turning 40 next year and want to have this as a mid life crisis.

Hoping to do Middle Boar in Sept if I can.

Now when do I tell the family my plan?

Oh and also just starting back at WW to lose the lard so any mutual support beatings with that would also be appreciated!

Again a tad late so might have missed the boat. But bitten the bullet and going to go for the Outlaw in 2013. Would love a mentor to subject to the really stupid questions, which are somehow easier to ask over the interweb!

Just qualified as a Doctor and start work in a week - so a bit terrified about that. Also unsure about time etc, but Ironman is full of stories of people who manage ridculous working hours, families etc and thrive.

Did the cotswold 113 in 5:41 and absolutely loved it. Goal for the Outlaw would be sub-12 (is this realistic??) / just finishing. My plan is currently work on swim/core/trying not to kill too many people at work. Then start the Fink intermediate program.

Love training with my garmin - tend to feel that without it runs and rides don't count. However would love to really get to grips with heart rates and utilise them properly. Also no idea about nutrition, so would love guidance around this.

Also saving up for a bike so expect a barrage of bike related posts in a few months!

Based in Salisbury.

Been a lingerer on the forums for a while, it was this forum that started the whole flippin' thing.

If anyone has the time to spare, I would hugely appreciate it.

Welcome HP

Don Fink "Be Iron Fit" is a good read and explains all about heart rate training.

Following a few PMs with Silver Trucker it seems we are both not only in the same area, but use the samw OW pond and want to do the same events.

Seems I may have tripped upon a training buddy and it seems more likely that this will happen!

HP much respect! but yes IM is full of OMG how did they manage? Stories which makes me think hmm I have no excuse really!

Will also be digging out my HR strap and getting to grips with the HR malarky too
