I am weak, weak, weak.  All that resistance, and in the end I just caved in!  Must be meant to be 

It was reading Fink that swayed me.  I can get 10 hours training time out of a week.  I can and I will.

So do we start training in December?

Outlaw 2012 opened for entries around late October and filled up by early December.  Id imagine it will be the same this year but id also expect it to fill up more quickly, maybe in a couple of weeks.

Best thing is to pre-register once this years event is over then youll get advance notification when entries are going to open.  Also watch the forums here as no doubt news will be spread around.

Well, it just gets better and better.  Spoke to hubby about Outlaw next year, and about Fink's plan, and he said, "That's do-able, crack on"!

Nice one, great to get support from the family.

Tri suit arrived today, but I think it's a bit too wee. Have ordered another to compare.

Went to the pool this afternoon and did some pull.  Used paddles for some of it, which I haven't for a while due to a sore shoulder.  Had forgotten what hard work they are! Still, did 1200m all in so pleased enough with that.

Hi NR.

Stick a Tri suit pic up, we can tell you if it looks too small

I'm off for a pool swim tonight. Nice relaxing one for me. Test out my first pair of Zoggs

My second Triathlon on Saturday, cant wait, really looking forward to it.

Zogg predator flex goggles, brilliant. Although i got a bit of a headache by the end of the hour, i think due to them nearly sucking my eyes out my skull.

66 lengths, 28 of which were front crawl

Good job mate, yeah I love zoggs but I had lines around my eyes for most of yesterday due to the same!! I have two pairs of said googles...

NR - tri suits are meant to be tight, but prob worth double checking

That's what I'm wondering, gastank - how tight is too tight?  It takes a bit of getting into, but I can do up the zip no probs.  Feels a bit neat around the neck/shoulders/underarms.  It's a lovely suit (although never having owned one before, I have nothing to compare it to), but I have to say - bordering on fetish wear.  Will see how the one from a different manufacturer fits.

Good swim, SD.  I also have those goggles and really like them.

Morning all. I have never worn figure hugging gear before so the first time in public wearing cycling gear, let alone a tri-suit, i felt really self concious.

My suit is very snug but not uncomfortable. Was concerned about splitting it when packing all the blubber in but it is fine, its really stretchy.

Tried to upload a pic, SD, but there must be a problem with this new forum format............................................

Funny, I thought that's what you'd say! Conquering the elements it is.  Actually, I like running in the rain.
