If the RW 24 hour race is a success why dont we do a decca in 2008?

Id be up for having a bash, maybe take me 10-12 days perhaps?

So, one person slept for an hour at a time, is that normal. What do others do?

Talking of flying to the sun!

We should get a pirate team together and enter the redbull whacky flying challenge.

Being trying to find a link but cant.

Short power naps work just as well as longer periods of sleep. Its surprising how long you can keep going on 15-20 min naps every so often.

yeah dave good point. i've done that when working solidly for 2 or 3 nights... but i was thinking that it might be different if you're doing ironmans in between!


i wonder if the 'slow' people (the ones making use of the full 14 days) ever follow the collier plan and sleep every night? maybe rosey can find out when tony gets back.

I guess you go into a deeper sleep after an hour, so it makes sense to keep it either under an hour or have at least four hours, to stop you feeling so terrible when you wake up.

It would be amusing to settle down every night for a cup of cocoa and 8 hours sleep.

Polyphasic Sleep? 20-30 mins a time, 6 times a day.

I'm not sure what happend to pants mate who tried this?
16/06/2006 at 08:47
i think he tried for about 6 weeks then gave up?

i think the collier plan is the way to go. obviously you need a year of sprint and a year of olympic before you do a deca though, and you should NEVER try something new on race day

it would be funny coming down in a smoking jacket and a fez with a plate of toast every morning, and waving to the athletes cycling with their eyes closed. and then still beating cut off by a day!

a smoking jacket for the evening, a silk padded dressing gown and slippers for the mornings. I think its definitely the way to go....

no qualifications but plenty of medical approval I think.

And Barley, 10-12 days ?? I think you overestimate your ability dude.

Seriously !

my point about a good night sleep was what is the point of entering a deca ironman but planning to do it with good nights sleep.

its like the FLM but planning on stopping half way round for a massage and lunch.
