Swim - can probably do the distance but it won't be pretty.
Bike - Can ride a bike and have most of the kit - but haven't been out on it much and seriously lacking in confidence.
Run - Marathon PB 3:33, have done various other running things including Thunder Run.

Ooh, I like this thread. It makes me think I might actually be able to do an IM

Swimming - can do the distance within the time, but think I might die if I tried to do anything else afterwards...

Bike - I have a bike. That's about it.

Run - I've got a dodgy knee, but am very pig-headed once I get started and know that I could finish even if I had to crawl. But I've never done a marathon...

I'm aiming for IM in 2014, so still 2 years away, but this thread is a brilliant confidence booster. I haven't drowned yet and I can run (slowly), but I fell off my bike last year and am being a big jessie about getting back in the saddle. Maybe I need a kick up the backside as much as a confidence boost.

Wasn't that your biggest training week for Wales?
