Rafi did Lanza as his first and was doing a lot of shouting and drinking this weekend, if he could remember any of it I am sure he would report

Is that Nursey still pished??  

Well done Sossige!

Did I happen to mention I am the PSOF 3k OW swim Champion?  

10/07/2013 at 22:24

Wow, well done.  How fast did you swim 3k?

10/07/2013 at 23:05

Well done Sossige on the swim, it is this thread and Holgs book that have me entering IMUK 2014...

As someone who is only just managing 6x25m ( was 1x25m 3 weeks ago) and  1600-2000m in a session , someone who swims 3k super fast is a hero to me...

G day all

I'm starting to get nervous as by race is only just over 2 weeks away 


Had a nice open water swim last nite - did 8.4k .. it was nice out there

Morning all. I am a newbie to all of this - and have very much enjoyed reading this thread. I got through about 1000 posts the other evening and will continue throughout the week. It is great seeing how people progress and improve - and also the support offered to people by the other members and the advice given by those who have in the past been in the shoes of those facing their first event. This has meant that the enjoyable read has also been an informative (and at times humerous) one.

I do a fair bit of swimming (mostly pool based but a bit of OW) and a lot of running (currently training for my first marathon) and following a bit of persuasion from a few friends I finally agreed that if I swim and run I should probably bite the bullet and get myself a bike - I resisted for a while, but it was inevitable that it would happen sooner or later. I am looking at entering a mini triathlon event later this year and then hopeing to get into it a bit more seriously after that. The event I am looking at doing is the Fountains Abbey Super Sprint that is in September.

It's on the Outlaw 2013 thread

Cheers for the welcome chaps.

My plan is to get the marathon out of the way before the course of my journey is mapped out - that said a copy of Be Iron Fit will be waiting for my on my iPad when I return from work.

My initial plan after I entered the marathon was to spend a month afterwards drinking and eating curry and not going anywhere near a the gym or on a road unless in a car - I can see that plan not coming into fruition at this rate.
