wait till the bike route is actually up then. I think the 'hill' you are talking about is Oxton - now, it isn't particularly bad. OK, I haven't cycled up it, but I have driven up it loads and it isn't bad or long. A little steep bit, but not enough to matter much

I've driven up loads of hills. None were any problem whatsoever!

Oxten bank is a blip, I had to ask a supporter this year that was stood at the top, if that was it and I live in flat Lincolnshire! As for duck poo, I would be more worried about suddenly swimming in warmer water!

I heard this is full already...the team is definitely doing something right with so many races our there

very well marketed. bit of TV coverage for a niche audience. bit of good press. a few technical issues to get the crowds circuling .open and publish the takeup rate. event full, job done!

only thing they missed is emailing everyone whod ever entered before with a special early bird offer. ( might have closed before opening then ), everyone who'd ever done one of their other events ( might have closed before opening )

still. cant wait to get wet in June and hoping for the waitlist ot move on the full event...

I have entered this and just booked onto the Caravan park, £18 per night, very cheap which means the family can come and laugh at me plodding around

Ahhhh I wondered if there were a thread for the half. . I have been ticking over with the cycling, just started getting a little running going again but haven't swam since September! I'm a little concerned but after doing the Outlaw and having to do so much swimming, I enjoyed not having to do it.......my allergy to water doesn't help. As from Monday though I am getting myself focused and need to get a plan going. The points thread will be added motivation for me and looking forward to getting stuck in. What plans are people using?

Aha thanksf or posting Chris I tried to book last year but they said the wouldn't take bookings until January, your post has just reminded me about it. Email sent.

There is always an opportunity for a list.

Lovely, I do like a nice list.

I've been a little lapse with the pucker training but as from Monday, I shall be on it! How's everyone's training going? Are we on plans or just going with the flow?

I havevn't reallly got a plan at the moment, trying to get myself back into running after a knee injury, but the running isn't going too well, so been doing quite a bit of turboing. I need to actually bike outside though

05/01/2013 at 14:09
I shall be on a plan come Monday, one of the youngsters at the tri club is helping me out. I've not swum since September so that will be unpleasant, biking is going good but that's cos it's my favourite bit and the running is plodding along. Not had any Achilles trouble since doing Outlaw last year on no run training so I am taking it careful.

I am starting my plan on 14 Jan, but doing a week of a little bit of everything to get in the habit. My running is limited at the moment, under physio orders but can swim and cycle OK. Only been turboing for a short while, so I do 30 - 40 mins at a time. I donot plan on cycling outside anytime soon. Maybe in Feb depending on the weather. Consistency needs to be my mantra to get me to June injury free and fit.
I have cobbled together a plan using a 20 week plan off the web and bits of Fink, which I used for relay Outlaw last year.
