You need to drink more Doggie.  On a century you should at least be thinking about a pee.

I didnt say i wasnt thinking about it   Drank two big bottles of water/zero stuff

Weekly update


14/07/2013 at 21:12

Still doesn't sound like enough Even on cool-ish days, I go through about .6 liters per hour.

15/07/2013 at 10:05

Need more hydration than tha SD, I go through 1.5 l in 2 hours/ 35 miles or so. 

Great result IY, 

me, well committed to IMUK 2014 now, swimming has gone from 25m at a time to first 500m this morning ( exactly 4 weeks) and 2000m per session. Would have kept going but r an out of time. 

Got a few knee twinges from the bike ( too much grinding/ low cadence ) but will start running as the ankle is feeling better.

Gaz, I have that problem.  I tend to get too "proud" at times and don't shift into the proper gear. I end up grinding up hills and wasted my legs.  I'm getting better at it but need to keep an eye on things.

Training (or rather, non-training) update ... three weeks left!

15/07/2013 at 18:34

Be fine mate, we'll have a good crack. Got  some nice new tyres to go on my bike & its booked in for a service next week

I have had a whole week of doing feck all apart from eating and drinking to excess 

Back in the pool today and it felt really good. Am going to spend the summer hols just ticking over, then when wee one starts school full time at the beginning of Sept I'll get properly stuck in to the training again (the benefit of working evenings.)


And how the f**k do you turn off predictive text on an iPhone?

Have fun, is that Simons thing? 

Good work Will.

Good evening for me

14 mile bike at a 17mph average & a 5k run in 28 ish minutes. Pain free, happy days.

16/07/2013 at 22:11

Great stuff Andy ... you're back!

16/07/2013 at 22:42

Haha, not really mate. In a lot better place than i was three weeks ago though, thats for sure

17/07/2013 at 00:01

Well done Andy!

Going for a 4k swim tomorrow night, will be interested to see what time I'll do. Managed to swim 1 mile in around 30 minutes last week, which is excellent for me!

Good night on the bike for me too, averaged 18.7mph over 30 miles. It's been a good couple of training weeks!

Bring on The Anglian!

17/07/2013 at 05:49

Blimey, great average Budgie Froome  well done.

Good swim too. I'll see you this evening at the swim, its going to be a warm one. Only going to do a couple of laps myself. 

I messed up what day i thought the Anglian was on so wont be marshalling on the Saturday, i thought the race was on the Sunday  (despite ithe date being in my blog header for the past 3 months)  I'll be helping with The Little Anglian run & the tidy up on the Sunday though.

Biked to OW swim session tonight (13 miles) then home again, and my knee's feeling good (at the moment).  So, a happy Tim.

 Excellent news mate, not long now so take it easy and get really for your big day.

19/07/2013 at 08:36

My knee threw me a dummy.  Feeling much better, so went for a gentle 3 mile run last night and now it's stiff as hell.  So ... icing, and doing nothing at all for a few days.  P*ssed off ... only two weeks left.  Just hope if it flares up during the race I  can just run through it and put up with the discomfort afterwards.  Not a great plan.

evening folks. 11 mile walk done today, practising for IMUK Run 

Seems to be a bit of flapping about wetsuits at ironman UK??

cant see the water temp being warm enough to warrant a no wetsuit swim myself. 

20/07/2013 at 20:12

Century ride done along with a short brick run.  IMKY in about 5 weeks. Feeling good about things.  

Doggie, it seems odd to mention England/no wetsuit swim.  Has IMUK ever been non-wetsuit legal?
