"In fact part of the reason I don't wanna fork out the money is because I don't wanna see it wasted if I don't complete the Ironman." then you're not ready to tackle an IM if you're thinking like that. sure there's a chance you might fail, but you need to have the right mental approach that says "I won't fail". IM isn't purely physical, it's psychological as well so go do one in the gym - it won't tell you diddly squat other than you can do the IM distances in a gym. doing it in a real event is a different matter altogether
Yes, this.

If you're ginger and you can't cal this effort an IM, maybe you could tell people you're a ginger nut?

They did an indoor sprint try at Leatherhead Leisure Centre last year.

Swim was last and a pre-set time was given to get down to pool to avoid people chagring down the stairs. Wasn't very expensive and was probably a good laugh.

It was only a sprint rather than an IM.

Hey, I did that one.  It was treddie first, then gym bike & swim to finish.  Good fun, I made a longer session of it by running there & back too.  Problem was, I won the thing so I ended up running 8 miles home carrying a big box of SIS stuff, a water bottle and a trophy.  A couple of cyclists gave me a look that said "I think he's overgoing the nutrition on his run."

My first tri was a rowing triathlon. So they just swapped the ergo rowing in for the swim. The rest of the race was done outside though - not in the gym.
