I suddenly realsied that this afternoon Purple.........trouble is the quin is too much to contemplate so i'm stuck in limbo land

 

What about the quin? Isn't that supposed to be easier than the triple?

the triple and quin are both outside my capabilities........my fastest single ironman time is 15 hrs odd.......and i don't think my body could take it..

my son wanted to do the single or half next year but they have moved the date forward a weekend so he will be 3 days too young

I'm sure they'd make an exception for him.

Just out of curiosity, a friend would like to know, how cold was the lake?

"a friend would like to know..." yeah, yeah.

And going back a few pages, David, I'm 100% behind you concerning the comment on 'people paying for doing a hobby'. If you work hard then you can do what the hell you want with your money. We all make choices in life. Not many would be stupid enough to enter into something like this without giving the training due consideration. But if you are mad enough to enter something because you can afford it, but turn up without having done any training, good luck for getting anywhere in the race!

I even failed at the supporting this year. I think I managed two hours actually 'on site'. Poor show!

Ah, I'm west London, but won't be going Kent way. I've let Waff know you have her top though so I'm sure she'll be in touch.

You are all mad, and I salute you.

I read a race report somewhere from a continous deca. Swim was in a pool!

So a continuos DECA is a bit like a long swim, followed by biking JOGLE, and then running most of the South West Coast Path.

Any islands 38km off John O'Groats?

Just thinking aloud.

Thanks for the info on the swim.
Do you know if there is a bike course gamin/strava type profile online anywhere?
