i think you need a new swim mentor Schmunkee...............have you considered asking Plum 

Oi, not my fault I don't know the difference between 25m and 400m

Well....your last swim mentor did let you down and leave you to it.....in waist deep water!

Her mentor can actually swim..............I only volunteered to keep her company..............she obviously fancied the canoeist company more than mine

most people can cope with my company for more than 25 metres

OK, if I haven't scared the brave souls off that have already PM'd me I am full up. Roll on 2013, the pair of them just need to decide what race now

Can I tell them the truth now?

Best not

I have a willing victim

I probably came accross as a bit of a twat earlier mentioning 12hr ish target etc

I think its important for a mentor to understand the stuff a mentoree is going through. so if possible choose a mentor that was where you are now if that makes sense. they will know what they did to get through things so will have lots of really relevant advice

Oh and 12 hrs is about average for a bloke.... ( 13 for a lady...?)
Of couse pirates are not average though

Noob Alert

PLEASE SHOOT ME

I am clearly looking over a parapet into a very dark abyss. I have been around since time immemorial, and this year have decided to think about triathlon.
-9 or so years of running, with 17 marathons, the best just sub 3.
-2 years retirement since then
-swims like a brick (crap swimmers are us)
-bikes like a noob.
-mental age 19, physical age 50

I need a mentor with a sense of wicked humour, and a sized 12 right boot.
I'm not aiming to win an Ironman, or even get Good For Age (if they do that sort of thing). I'd be happy to finish before final cut off in each section.

The question is whether KK is too sensible....

Blisters Kittenkat may be better based than me to mentor with rides invyour area etc still happy to help if you want it
07/07/2012 at 08:48

Alternately Appledore and Salisbury...group rides sound good to me - going to need all the help I can get

Always willing to mentor anybody through open water swimming, but I have little experience of running or biking so would be no good at the whole tri thing.

Four years ago I was terrified of OW to the extent that I had a panic attack the first time I went in.  Now you can't get me out of the water.  Happy to share experiences with those who are scared of their first OW swim.

SuperCaz - when it fits in your diary, I wouldn't mind getting together for a sea swim especially with the swim event I have in mind for 2013/2014

I would be happy to mentor someone too if there is anyone who still needs some help.  I know what it is like to be back of the pack and chasing cut offs so anyone who fears that I am happy to give back some of what I have received from others

I'm happy to mentor anyone who is willing to take advice from a brick like swimmer!
as I've mentored runners previously,  incl a group of novice runners to Marathon success last year.

4 IM completions nearer the back of the pack (13h - 15h range),  but I've personally learnt something from each one.  Am based in Sussex / Surrey so someone Southern based would work out better for me...........30 day free trial with full refund if not satisfied

Be warned though, your running style may alter sufficiently to take my title away from me!

Gladys, I fear the Mincing Award will be forever yours. No one can compete. No one can come close

I want to like your post bedders!

Melli, I sent you a message on twitter, but don't know if you got it. Would you be interested in mentoring me?

Ummm... I'm 24, no major family commitments just work to wrangle with. Would like to go faster and could benefit from more structure to my training. Thinking about splashing out on TrainingPeaks and a few gadgets to log what I'm doing better. Definitely want to take a good chunk off my time next year - thinking IMCH.
