Very well done ISD and Tim, it was an amazing day cheering you both on, and the other Pirates.

Completed my peak weekend for IMKY on August 25th.  Swam the full distance Friday, rode the whole course Saturday, ran 17 on Sunday.  Not to count chickens before they're hatched but feeling very pleased with my progress and fitness.  The bike was at 17.2 mph compared to averaging under 15 when I did the race in 2011.  My run pace yesterday would translate to a 4:40 marathon, while my PR is 4:47.  

On the downside, I'm pretty much wrecked, but I guess that's the point of the taper

Massive well done ISD! See you down Whitlingham for the Aquathlon?

There's a story to that finisher, I'm sure!

Name change alert -- I'm DimTimTris, but now I'm IronScribe, thanks to a suggestion from Holgs a few months ago.  Cos I'm a writer, and now I'm an IRONMAN!

What an AMAZING day.  Thanks for support everyone.  Chuffed with my 14:12.  Still smiling ear to ear, still hurting, and I'll do a full race report soon.

 Nice one IronScribe so does this mean there will be a jedi endurance event where they swim through space and then go pod racing in a book coming soon?

Cake, great idea, I could then tax-deduct my IM entrance fee!  It's all research ...

If you do it that way you could claim a new bike from your publisher?

Photo please SD. Yes, I know we've seen M-dot tats before, but we've never seen yours Ironsossige   

Mine is designed, I just need to get my arse up to Edinburgh to have it done


No, it's not going on my arse


Hearing the tales of our IMUK arfleets has made me all iron-emotional all over again. Want to do another one. NOW. 

Swam 1500m yesterday and ran 5 miles today. Not so easy to fit sessions in with the kids at home, but I'm sticking with my plan to just keep ticking over for the holidays and get stuck right in once they're back to school
