race report & review
Well done Mudman, sounds like fun despite the hills.
sounds great.. well done!
Well done Mudman, sounds like a great race.....and an impressive time given your unideal build up !
Nice Review Mudman, a very enjoyable read for somebody who has just put their name down for the same event next year.
Although.... I am not sure if I am ready for a 70.3 at all!!!
I am quite confident at running and in the past few years have ran several half marathons as well as 2 FLMs, although never at good pace (1:35pb for half, 3:40pd for full) but have just signed up for this which will be my first ever triathlon. I am not scared of the run.... but, I have not swim since I was made to do lengths in school about 5 years ago, AND, I have never even been on a road bike, only mountain bikes, but again not for a few years now!!
I am scared that I have made a poor decision trying an IM as my first triathlon. I realise that I need to start swimming as soon as possible, from what I can remember I was fairly competent but tired quite easily and certainly could not swim fast. I am hoping that my cardio fitness I already have will give me a good base for when I purchase a new bike in January to start training on, but we will see.
I have actually just moved to Wiesbaden a few months ago, and am only here for 13 months, so I thought it would be a good opportunity this year to build up the fitness to be able to compete.
Is it possible do you think? Will you be competing in it again this year?
