Pah SD and Cake I will fight you for the last out the water but still within the cut off prize. 1hr 59mins 59seconds it mine, all mine

Latest swim time is 55mins for 2000 meters.

Happychap got that exact time at Outlaw a couple of years ago I believe - 1 second before the cut off!

Budjude - the other thing to remember when comparing swim times is the conditions of the swim - is it a lake/sea/river swim, how windy is it, how cold is it? You'll never get the same conditions twice. I was almost 15 minutes quicker in the sea swim at Lanza compared to the week before at my local lake.

See Raf I'm following in my mentors footsteps perfectly.

The only way I know my open water swim time is from the last event I done, never really timed myself training.

I'll have to see how fast I can swim 800m/1600m tonight I think

Grafman race report.

Oh thanks guys! definitely going to jump in I came second in my Olympic distance in San Andres and had an awesome time!!! I will be in the UK for work in September and signed up for a charity place at the world Championships in London...I had wanted to do the snowdonia race as that is where I am from but it is on the same date as my flight back to Bogota. 

I think I will do the half IM in Miami in November as it is easy to get to from here. Signing up after work today, you are all right- if I sign up I will find a way to do it!! Any suggestions about recommended IM for 2014? If I plan ahead I can travel

And can I wear the kit if I do a half IM first? Hmmm? I can definitely do the not taking myself too seriously, look fabulous in yellow, want to do an IM and am up for cheering you all on. 

I don't have a nickname...the girls that I ride with in Suesca are the Brujas de Guita...the witches of Guita

Hannah you are more than welcome to join the coven here !

The whole pirate 'thing' was borne out of being able to go from zero to Ironman and showing that it was accessible to all and enjoyable .. at that time this was just before the 'boom' per se and was seen (and still is in some quarters) as an elite sport, so the pirates do not take themselves too seriously, they enjoy a party, they look after newcomers and generall have a good time .. thats not to say we do not have our decent racers, age group winners, world champ qualifiers and all round good eggs but you could not wish to meet or join a nice bunch of people.
Our race support and attendance is legendary  
Wear the kit, race with pride innit

 - 3hr interval 'run' on the cross-trainer

 - 30mins core and stretch

happy with that
