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

Evening all

A pretty solid day for me.


- 3k swim as 3 x 1000m


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

 - 30mins core and stretch

happy with that

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
