90 minute bike ride done last night, no dramas. 80 miler planned for tomorrow


Good luck to the Outlawer's this weekend. Will be nice and warm for you by the looks, dont forget your suncream !

Since I'll be spinning around the IMKY course tomorrow for most of the day and might not get on until late, good luck to the Outlaw-types.  The hay is in the barn, trust in your training.  You've put all the work in, now go enjoy the fruits of your labor.  

I was going to write something like:  let me be the first to say, "YOU are an IRONMAN!" but I suppose you become Outlaws on Sunday?

80 mile bike ride done @ a 15mph average, no ankle pain.  Pleased with that.

did start to struggle after 70 miles though, went through 5 gels, two bottles of drink & a pack of nutrigrain biscuits

Nice one mate!  Good to hear you're back training.  4 weeks from now....!  

I've had a weekend on food and booze, knee still a bit sore so waiting to see physio again on Wednesday.  Main concern now is that I'll pile on a stone in the next 4 weeks if I can't train, so tomorrow I start taking a LOT of care about what I eat.

IY, I will write a race report once I return to the land of the  living.  Right now I am zombieing!

Quick summary to keep you going: swam, biked, ran. It was hot. I cried. Pirates are awesome. I am an Outlaw

Fantastic Nursey, who wasnt going to do an Iron distant tri in 2014 

Well done.

Alibear gave it a great go but was pulled up at in the latter stages of the bike.

Hi SD I'm doing my first tri in July and aiming for IM in 2014 (now let's wait and see how long it takes gastank to try telling us we'll be doing it in 2013!!) So how did you find your first tri experience?

Thank you so much for that, Cat. At the moment, hubby works full-time shifts over 7 days (ie 5 days a week, but weekend days as well as Mon-Fri), and I work 3 evenings a week (also weekends as well as Mon-Fri). My only guaranteed free time is 2 hours a day Mon-Fri when wee one is at nursery. I spend one of those hours exercising the dog. Yes I can run with her, but not on the main roads (we live in the country, so there are no pavements!), and I obviously can't swim or bike with her. I do have a turbo, but still can't put in lots of hours on that. This is why I've decided to do shorter events meantime and IM in 2014. Wee one will start school Aug 2013 and I'll then have 5 hours a day Mon-Fri to do as I please - train! I can't commit to IM until I know that I can give it what it needs.

This is great. I'm going to have so many experienced IMen mentoring me for 2014. Started reading Be Iron Fit. All makes sense so far. And an excuse for more shopping - HR monitor.
