It is a long way Phil .... but its a fun journey

Using that strange definition of fun again Meldy. ?

Well im hoping its going to be fun.

What is the best way to start?

Get my fitness up first or try and join a running club? I juyst feel I wouldn't be fit enough for a club yet.

Evening all. Havent looked in here for a long while, hope everyones keeping well.


Just go for it Phil. You will find you get loads of support in a Tri club, regardless of your current fitness level

Not really no ! But I generally managed to get round the bouys in 90 mins at an IM
22/06/2015 at 19:46

Yes good point, ill email some clubs, Im sure there will be some in Aberdeen.


At least I don't have to learn to swim, that's one positive at least.

So what is the Pirate thing?

just get out running too.... even a 2 min run is a start!..... perfectly acceptable, even recommended to run a few mins, walk a few mins to start with.. plus, if you're on the 'generous' side on the size front, it gives your knees time to get used to the activity..... oh and welcome to the club BPO!... the very first step is the hardest.

Pirate thing is a secret society of crazy people who absolutely, certainly, guaranteed, won't talk you into doing an Ironman soon. No, they wont. Absolutely not. Never.

Well I don't know about soon, but I'm

definitely up for the challenge.
