nice one nursey, I'm the complete opposite here today  

[warming blokes TMI alert]  'tis TOTM chez Frag and after 4 days of massive pmt mother nature has finally called.  I can cope with uncomfortable/pain, but the past 36 hours I've had nausea on and off   I'm fine if I stay still(ish) but if I move about I feel like  .  Luckily it's recovery week as I managed my planned hour long bike ride, and am plucking up the courage to do my run later  - yes I know I'll feel better for it, but at this precise moment I'm not so sure..

(((((Frag))))). It really is a shitty feeling. Are you eating ok or is the nausea putting you off? Take it easy with the run.

Oh, and the drugs do work

Have run and felt fine actually running, but within 5 mins of stopping I felt all sicky again   -  hoping a good nights sleep and so co-codamol will sort me out

Hey guys just going to jump in here...How did you decide when you were ready to go from Olympic distance to half ironman? I'm thinking of doing the Miami man in November and then think of doing an IM a year later. But I just don't know whether the just dive in and sign up or what. Eeeeep.

And...how did you become pirates? Does it involve planks and cold water and terrible food or has it all got civilised and cyber now?

Hi hannah.

i just signed up for stuff that looked good then trained towards it. Just go for it, i havent felt ready for any event ive done so far, proven on Sunday, but still finished

If you have done an olympic you will be able to do a half ironman imo. Good luck 

ps. Which full ironman will you be doing in 2014

Oh it's much, much worse than that ...

I've only entered one tri up to now and had a DNF. Outlaw will be my first triathlon finish. 

Jump in Hannah

Morning all

Last nite for me was ...

 - 45.5 mile bike ride around kent
 - 30mins core and stretch

Hannah, what Soggige said, if you've done an Olympic you can train for a half. Sign up first then worry about it.  

12/06/2013 at 09:55

Hannah, what Sossige said again. Just dive in, sign up and work towards it

I think if you're at Olympic distance level you can train for a full Ironman, no problem. I couldn't swim 25m in January this year, and I finished a half ironman two weeks ago and have a full ironman in about 6 weeks from now. 

Jump in, it's all possible

The shortest distance I did was 1/2 IM, I'd already signed up to IM by then

So you are saying that you prefer long and steady.. to short and fast

I think thats middle of the pack times for the swim Bj

12/06/2013 at 12:32

middle of the pack suits me fine, as long as that doesnt include getting beaten up the entire way round!

i wont be racing anyone other than my fat knackered alter ego so i always win

I was last out of the 3k swim last night and it was the first time i have been out last, but the first time i have done that distance so wasnt sure. Werent that many who did the distance and they beat me by a good 10 mins i would say.

i always seem to struggle to relax for the first 5 mins and then it dawns on me that i can swim and that the water isnt that green

now getting out of my wetsuit is a whole other kettle of fish! i am thinking a good 5 mins in T1 at that alone....

To avoid being last out of a swim, sign up to the same events as me
