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

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.

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.

darn it wish I'd done the swim only bit now! Well done Budgie keep going.

Same Ali. Sea was as flat as Whitlingham this morning as well by the looks of some of the pics.

Just picked my bike up from its service, was going to drive out and see Budgie but he'll probably be finished before i get there

I believe if he stays on pace the Budgie shall finish in about 20-30 minutes. Go Budgie!

The Budgie is an Ironman!
