Now I am keen on this one. Half the distance means half the training so hubby can't complain at that ..... surely!!!!!

IF it is the 2nd, will it actually be too close to the full? You would have thought they'd set the date to fit with a 'conventional' plan for the full, no?

Have missed out on the opportunity for outlaw for a number of reasons and as me and hubbie wanted to do it decided to hold back as financially too stretching but a half 2nd of June sounds very tempting wonder when this will open entries we could both do this and half the price and then plan for the full next year

There isn't a conventional plan, first timers will train very differently to a seasoned vet, a month gives you ages to recover if its not your first year

I've already shelled out £250 for the big one, and for that reason, I'm out

5 weks before is plenty of time............most pirates did bala 3 weks before IMCH when I did it and i beleive the previous year they only had 2 weeks between bala and IMF...............but with 2 weeks you have to ecide whether to race it or use it as a training pace event.........

5 weeks is when you will be at your peak training so can't see the problem........seems ideal to me......

I agree ... 4 or 5 weeks out is more than enough recovery time from half to full, if you dont recover from a 1/2 IM in that time IMO your training is all wrong

How can 5 weeks out be to close to the full? 

Surely 5 weeks out is perfect timing, most of you will (or should be) doing 5/6 hour training sessions in the 4-8 weeks before the taper starts. 

Aside from that, if youre entering it as a prep event you shouldnt necessarily be racing it eyeballs out as if it was your A race.

It is scaring me a little that I am even considering this

It wasn't so long ago you were calling me mad for doing triathlon! *evil cackle*

24/09/2012 at 13:39

Depending on price, I'm in!

I have no recollection of that whatsoever

The thought of this almost tempted me out of triathlon retirement.

But my will is strong, or should that be, my hatred of cycling is just too great.

Shame because it should be a great race,

I was considering doing Bala but if the price is right for this one might think about it instead.
Might even be able to crash at the OH's uncles near Southwell for cheap accomodation depending on the start time

JvR - I live in Southwell and would just be going from my house in the morning - it isn't far to drive

I am mad for considering this but excited at the thought

I was gonna do Bala next year, but seen as this is almost my back garden, it would be rude not to enter Come on Ian, announce it already pleeeeese!
