The whole RW site's been b*ggered. I think they forgot to put 20p in the meter?

So, I started this thread back on 18/04/2012 at 07:27 with the view to doing an  ironman.

That is only 11 days away  

Injuries are ok now but i'm only up to a 5 mile run that i did on Monday. That was a struggle as well in the heat.

Still, feeling fairly positive & looking forward to it

I would re-post the pic Sossige, but I wonder if it had offended the delicate nature of someone at RW Towers, and it could very well have been what caused the crash!  I can PM it to you for a small fee 

Well, my two post-Outlaw weeks had contained a whole hour of exercise (swimming), so it is time to get my arse in gear again. Away on holiday this week so have done two short runs, 20 mins each, with another planned for Friday. Home on Saturday and back to my version of normal. I'm also trying to stop eating as if I'm still fuelling IM training, and stop drinking as if I'm still celebrating finishing Outlaw!

So how are you feeling about your IM Sossige?

My IM isn't until August 25th but quite frankly, I am ready to roll.  I rode 100 on Saturday, did a short brick run, and ran 14 on Sunday. I also swam 3500 this morning so I'm about as ready as I'm going to be.  I'm in the dog days of training as they say.  Have to work this weekend so going to get in what I can get in long ride wise but still do a 15 mile run.  Then the weekend of August 2/3/4 I'll be doing one last big weekend.  Full distance swim on Friday, full on the course ride on Saturday, then a 16 mile run on Sunday.  Then it's taper madness.

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.

26/07/2013 at 09:57

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.
