just caught up on the thread - good luck for IMUK all those that are doing it. Would have loved to have come up to support but we are going on holiday so I'll try to follow people on the tracker. looking forward to reading the race reports when you finish

Well, my Ironman is nearly here... Can't believe it's on Saturday! 

I'm pretty sure I said my first wouldn't be until 2014 at the very earliest. I'm blaming Yank, Sossige and all others on here!

I was put on antibiotics for a chest infection yesterday, so hopefully it will all clear up in time. It may just be in my head (that'll do!), but I feel a lot better today.

Looking forward to it all now!

Good luck Budge. Going to try my best to get up to Cromer on Saturday pm. 

I'm there on Sunday to help with the kids race.

Good luck Budgie for Saturday. Which one are you doing?

I feel a bit lost. Really enjoyed the Outlaw and want to go again. Thought maybe a branded one but Austria full and Frankfurt. Don't want too many hills. Anybody done Copenhagen. Or maybe outlaw again next year and Austria year after.

Sossige - your swimming's really come along since you started the thread. Well done.

Challenge Almere looks very flat indeed - below sea level!

Great unless there is a wind when you have nothing to shelter you from it.

Thanks. Learning to swim front crawl is still the thing i'm most proud about on the journey. Next challenge after ironman is to become not the slowest front crawler in Britain

Andy, me too!  Year ago I could barely swim 4 lengths.

Mile in the pool this morning ... it was like the walking dead in there.  One old guy actually just walked around the shallow end, side to side, seemingly at random.

Snail, a certain Budgie was talking about the flat/fun event that is IM Kalmar in Sweden.  I believe it opens for registration soon.

Err confused here. It says 17th August 2013 on website. Isn't it 27th July tomorrow or am I being a bit thick Good luck anyway.

Budgie is doing The Anglian tomorrow. Good luck Budgie. 

26/07/2013 at 20:40

Right! 

I was talking about 2014 for Kalmar.

yeah doh

what an idiot. Told you I was being thick

Good luck budgie and Sweden looks flat bit a swim in the Baltic sea

Either there has been some very quick swim times at The anglian or they halved the distance.Nobody appears to have taken over an hour. Budgie did the swim in around 50 minutes.

Was a 3.8k swim. Apparently the tide was helpful.

Lots of swim PB's at the first Norfolk Ironman.

Budgie is on the run.

Bike split 7:09

Looking  good for a sub 13 hour finish

Go Budgie go! My students think I'm mad (teaching a course today) as I keep checking my iPad for updates.
