splatfink I'm in the Midlands and doing my first IM next year.

Sounds like you are perfectly suited to being a pirate!

Ironholgs book is dangerous - it's his fault I entered Outlaw!

Welcome Splat, don't worry to much about not doing the distance in training, a lot of training plans don't go the full distance in training. The occasion and knowing that you don't have to train the next day will give you the extra boost.

Good luck for the run

Welcome Splat. DTT & myself signed up for IMUK 2013 the other week, come join us, loads of time to train. Finks structured training commences 7th Jan.

Was in the same boat with you with FC untill a few months ago, then it just clicked. Although still very slow (just like my bike & running though)

Hi Splat

Good luck with your half.

That bloody Holgate has a lot to answer for

Hi splat.. Good luck for next Sunday! FC will just click as SD says...I'm signed up the outlaw 2013...

Well I have at long last popped my triathlon cherry...did a sprint distance yesterday in the wind and rain and loved every minute.
Bit of a manic swim in a very small swimming pool but all good...note to self..don't yap so much in T1 as it cost me 5 mins!!
Loved it so much that I'm doing another next Sunday...have yet to tell OH!

50mile bike ride yesterday, 30 min wet run with the dog today and very cold swim at Pennington flash tonight. Swim was very cold, last session of the season. Decided to stop timing myself on the bike and run so I won't get fed up with slow times. Well done to all who raced at the weekend.

Morning plebs

Morning all - thanks for the warm welcome. I had no idea that Nottingham had an IM distance event. July is a bit soon for me - I was thinking Wales 2014 or maybe Notts Outlaw 2014. I'll definately be there to cheer you all on though. Where abouts are you from Evil Pixie? I'm North Notts.

2014??  Thats like foreevvvvver away 

25/09/2012 at 08:43

I'm sticking with my foreevvvvvvvver away 2014 plan but wanted to let you know that I am lurking in this thread I can't always keep up but it generally makes funny/addictive reading so I can never stay away for too long

Hope you are all well

Nicely topical Meldy, the plebs say morning back! 

25/09/2012 at 09:41

2013 seems like the year to enter my first triathlon... and hopefully a half IM. Anyone doing any half IM events as preparation for the full event?

25/09/2012 at 09:43

Meldy's just showing off that she knows what's happening in the real world! Nice to have your back Tortuga keep us up to date with how things are going with you. Some of us may not make 2013, reading through old posts it's obvious that unfortunatley some of us will not make it through training unscathed!

5 Mile run done this morning so back into training for the full Marathon in November. Starting to worry about what pace I should set out at and I think I need to try a gel an see what happens with my stomach. Might give one a go tomorrow morning after about 2 miles, hope I make it home OK.

Definitely winter now, wore full length running tights this morning and my face has that nice winter wind blown glow about it. A bit like this smiley although I'm not as angry

Splatfink, I'll be looking at a HIM sometime in May or June as part of my IMUK training.

Ali there is nothing better than that feeling IMO 

(windblown that is, rather than showing off )
