Must play havoc with the Witching duties - night time must be your busiest period??

True but you can put it towards new wheels or racing abroad, or a lot of licouice allsorts or whatever takes your fancy.

Good luck with your training for it Sgt lard, if it's anything like the full race it will be a cracker.

One of the PTs put it in a bit of perspective ... My cut short session is still as long as most people at the gyms training session . But still was supposed to be last Pre-marathon long run ..

I'm in for the 1/2 outlaw as well,I was going to do Bala but with the cost of petrol, hotel etc i may as well go local. Back to just Tri training now and my first dip in the pool since the Vit and like Holgs, brick springs to mind!

SD - it's not far our for IMUK mate, about a fink I think from finks recommended - DTT check the spreddie mate would ya?

Will - ur a machine but ever so slightly Obsessive, I can say this as I am one too BUT u need to rest mate, if you're sick you won't be going yourself any favours by not listening to the body - hope u recover quick

Well my patheticness for this evening is another scheduled b4stard of a weights session, a hilly 8 mile ride and about an hours fast walking with the missus this evening

Sgt lard I would but there's always camping which works out quite well and quite cheap, there will be plenty of others doing exactly the same

Gas, its only a week out. Finances are the main reason for not signing up.

I need to reign in the spending for 2013. Everythings sorted for IMUK, accomodation etc paid. I'm only going to do the one olympic and middle distance on top of IM next year. Will probably do great barrow challenge again as well.

Would like to find tri's that don't involve shelling out on gallons of petrol and accomodation. May turn out i just do my own.
