Only one problem with my medal. It says half-iron distances on the back. They're "working on it." haha

outlaw has 517 places gone already - I appear to be one of them.

Sooooooo how do I stop myself from being a pig and start being an Iron Pixie instead?

Get in to a schedule you can maintain until December the whateverth. 2 x swim, 2 x run, 2 x bike. Then start to build a la Fink/Gordo/Friel. The weight will fall off towards the end anyhow.


Very very very jealous of you all. Outlaw FOMO .

The theory is simple because it is, its planning and determination that lets most (me included) down

annoyingly I don't actually eat badly as such just too damn much and too often and now it's a stupid habit meaning I eat without even thinking about it.

All I do know is that this Outlaw will be a hell of a lot easier with less of the lard to carry about

SD well done! You're gonna be a shadow of your former self and will have to change your forum name to greyhound!

foot update - Dr was useless and podiatrist today a bit more encouraging - suggested it was a muscle strain and after a little modification to my orthotic reckoned icing, massage and rolling on a tennis ball might do the trick in time for GNR on Sun. We'll see - a bit reassured that it was not anything serious ... Fingers crossed, then ??

SD - 480 miles is one helluva sportive??!

480 miles ...?

12/09/2012 at 23:26
