more places for what ? the full monty ?
no, darn it, it's for the half......
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
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.
I mailed them and got a reply today with this phone number 0115 9824721 and got booked in, no deposit just pay when I turn up
There is always an opportunity for a list.
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
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.
Im getting back onto my plan, starting with a 45 min spin tonight to freshen up the legs. Cant swim at the moment, ( ear infection just wont die ). so bike & run awaits
accidentlally left the information pack lying around at the weekend, so the family now know 'vaguely' that I have a race in June. Just as well, as the pirate costume is now in the post - and its arrival might have triggered delicate negotiations .
Shan't mention the full until ive secured entry via the waitlist process...no point pissing on the fire before ive secured the weekend pass.
Does anyone know how the charity entry works ( Plan B ) - I gather its £500 but doesnt carry a donation target like Ironman ?
Training plan starts on Monday Woohoo! I've done three weeks of marathon training already (doing Brighton marathon too) so feeling good and ready for a bit of variety. I've cobbled together a plan from begginerstriathlete.com with a runners world marathon plan. Think I'm a bit over excited by the whole business.
bike course is on the website now arghhhhh, it is real, I am going to do this! I have no excuse not to practice the bike route - one of loops goes very close to my house
yes, part of it is dual carriageway. To be honest, I don't often go down that road so not sure how busy it gets, but it is not a massively busy road. I have no idea why that stretch of road is dual carriageway as it isn't necessary for the volume of traffic. So I wouldn't worry about it being particularly busy on a Sunday morning, although it does mean there are a couple of roundabouts to navigate
although having said that, the first part of the bike is a fairly busy dual carriageway, when we come out of the watersports centre, bit of course, it will be around 8 on a Sunday morning, so I wouldn't expect that much traffic there either
So how are all the half-ers doing? Only 6 weeks on Sunday till the big day. Apart from no open water swimming I feel reasonably on track for this one. Famous last words and all that.
Shhhh, I'm pretending this isn't for another few months.
I've just run a marathon, but to the detriment of cycle training.. erm.. panic?
