Go on Ultra Bookie, you know you want to.

I just found my race pics from 2011.  The smile has to be hysteria, or maybe it was frozen in place by that point

looks far too damn cold for me Nursey, sure Gas and his mates will have great fun - and the beer tent will be the place to be

Evening all

I've gone and entered the Anglian 2014. My local long distance tri. I don't really have a clue what i'm doing. I've swam the distance before (in a pool) although I've not done much open water swimming but guess that will be fine. I've run 20 marathons and a few shorter ultras so the run should be OK. I'm a rubbish cyclist though. 

I've got Suffolk coastal ultra next week (33 miles) and am doing brighton marathon. There's 16 weeks after brighton until the Anglian so the plan was to swim once a week and get on the turbo once a week up until brighton. Then drop 80% of the running and become a cyclist for 16 weeks. Think it might work?

Spoons

Swim and bike twice a week and I think you might be on to something...
Then hit openwater as soon as the season starts! Dont underestimate the bike its the longest part and need to build a base, of which just sitting on the fekkin thing for 6 hrs is an endurance even im its own right!

Good luck Spoons! I did the Anglian this year, loved it!

Good luck with the CTS next week too, I'm doing the 10k because I missed out on entries for the half or full marathon! (Not quite crazy enough to do an ultra just yet)

Iron budgie - ultras are easy. Just a long easy day out! 

think I might need to bike / swim more. My concern is dropping too much running before Brighton. I was hoping run fitness my get me through....

Just been to see Cirque du Soleil. Amazing. For some strange reason, I'm feeling the need to do some core work .......

A butterfly, or maybe a dolphin, would look lovely on you
