Good read DTT.

Can you tell me how to do links like you've done in your post, rather than put the whole web address in?

Just been for a wee swim.  Felt great, and no ill-effects since  .  Drugs, heat pack and lots of exercises are doing the trick.

You foreigners swim in some strange liquids

S'ok Meldy, it's sterile

And we're hard as nails

 

And slightly unhinged

You should always ask me .. the mouldy one is always right 

Surely there's a law about blatant lying on here???

Well done Tim, good write up, sounds like a lot of frigging about on that one.

You signed up to IMUK yet Gas?

Errr no I can't sign up for anything yet... I'm currently awaiting news of a potential opportunity related to doing my first IM for the benefits of medical science and until I know whether or not I'm guinea pig number 235 I am unable to commit to an alternative at this point

Needless to say an IM is on the cards for 2013 regardless but which one and under what guide remains to be seen

Bbplod - I guess you were in an earlier wave, I thought I was the only pirate on course yesterday... I was "lucky" to be in the very last set before they decided it was too dangerous, I've now learnt they shortened the bike legs in later waves too! So I am especially pleased with both my time and having made it around in one piece

Hi all...I have never done a triathlon...or run a race before, but I want to do an ironman. Started running this Christmas after gaining weight and my first race, the Robin Hood half is next Sunday (very nervous as I haven't quite reached the distance in training yet...). I've started swimming lessons (as I couldn't do front crawl) and managed my first 25m of front crawl yesterday. I'm halfway through Ironholgs book - which brought me here... so - anyone else here from the east midlands, or doing the robin hood next weekend?

Well done & welcome to the madhouse Splatfink

Welcome Splatfink.  IMUK is August 4th next year 

Good luck on the half, don't worry about not hitting the distance in training, race atmos will get you through.
