Recommend 'Going Long' for general advice on long-d triathlon.  Nicely condensed.

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.

with your speed on the bike I would have a bash at the Fink competitive programme. If you can't keep up with the amount of hours, you could always drop back to the intermidiate or hash both together! Realistically I you run and swim as fast as you cycle, then under 12hrs will definately be do-able.

Ridgebackmax so sorry I just saw this! Manic week at work. I'm planning Challenge Henley next year so a while to go and need a kick up the backside to stop eating mh own bodyweight in Jaffa cakes and get started again... Gladys and I are doing some mutual twitter shaming / encouragement but any advice you can offer certainly gratefully received...

Not good policy to OW swim on your own anywhere.

Big fish do even bigger fish poo!

KK only alone as in no big strong pirate to look after me! There was about 60 others there as it's a tri organised swim at the water park.

No way ever never would I swim alone alone OW

please don't remind me of the poo!

Ah ok

Think of the poo as a beauty treatment, all those nutrients! yum!

I find "Going Long" really difficult to get my head around. Guess it depends on your learning style. If you need to understand what you're doing,and be in control of it all, it's probably good. But it doesn't "tell" you what to do.... and the only example plans in there (even for "Novice Nick") start at about 16 hours a week.

For my money... Fink is a much better book for finishers... Going Long for competitors.

GP feel free to message me for any advice you need , i aim to be at Henley either in a do the half and support the pirates or just support role
Fink for me when i was doing my first couple of IMs it was my bible Freil required to much working out my training is now a sort of mish mash of the two with some Gordo chucked in as well

Ridgebackmax (is there an acceptable abbreviation?!) thank you. I bought Fink, forgot about it, arrived on desk at work this afternoon after a looooooong lunch and my roommate commented that I looked like I was about to vomit. C'est la vie! May need some assistance with interpretation!
