Je je je IronBruja once I did the IM would be quite entertaining...and I'm not even Scottish!

I had to read Will's post twice in order to be sure as well! That's a lot o cross training, I'm impressed!

Well done Andy, you'll get right back into it.  You've got to, I've got to have someone to chase at IM!

Well done SD nice to see your back in the game. Wish I was but should be as of the weekend, really missed swimming last night but had good fun trying time everyone for the aquathlon.

Feeling fat and unfit after 3 complete days off.

Welcome Hannah and nice to see you running again Soss 

recvery week continues here, and I feel even more knackered than I do usually!  Plan says 1 hour easy biking today, and given the right old hoolie blowing outside I think I'll be on my mtb later today otherwise I'll get blown about all over the road on Alice   Kettlebells tonight so there will be planty of gurning and grunting

2hrs 50min run this afternoon. Felt really good, especially when I talked myself out of walking and kept the run going.

Frag, I take it your back is ok with the kettlebells? I have a friend who swears by it, but I'm a bit wary.

Yes it's fine Nursey, I just keep to fairly low weights and always make sure my core is engaged and so far no probs - actually i'd say it's very good for my back as it gives the whole core a good workout. I guess with all these things its a case of know your limits (in my case 4kg  ) and stick to them    Nice running btw

Was just talking to the guy in charge of the embassy gym and he is going to get us some kettle bells and TRX gear yay

That is because you are well practiced !

Helloooo...I'm just in the wrong time zone am I not. Hmmm. Have any of you done the Miami Man HIM?

14/06/2013 at 01:32

I have friends who've done it. Loved it, just be ready for some heat.  

14/06/2013 at 01:50

Yeah...my only worry. I will be training all of August in Jamaica though, my hope is that that will both prepare me for Miami and leave me with a fantastic tan with which to wow all the Brits as the week after I head to the UK...my cunning plan mwahahahha

14/06/2013 at 01:51

IronYank...where in los EEUU are you?

14/06/2013 at 01:53

I'm off swimming...the class leader has promised we will be doing 3.5-4km each class from now on and I am excited yay *only nerd in the class even when we are swimming* 

14/06/2013 at 01:53

Louisville, Kentucky.  Yeah, you might have heard about a little horse race here.  I'm getting ready for my 3rd IM, Ironman Louisville.  So heat is nothing to really worry about for us.  I'll be happy if it stays under about 33C.  

14/06/2013 at 01:57

Oh wow! Good luck!

I'd suffer I'm afraid. We're at 2600masl and while it gets hot during the day sometimes, the temperature drops right off in the evening. I have skirts and short sleeved tops in the day and down jackets at night.

I have the registration form up and credit card at the ready, and will register for the MiamiMan as soon as I get back from swimming. I really want to try an IM next year but thought I should definitely try the middle distance first.
