So here it is.

Are you thinking of a tri Azac?

11/07/2008 at 11:15

Good morning!

Thinking, yes. Doing - doesn't look like it.
BUT with my cross training on the bike and the pool (if I ever get started) I should be ahead of most of these poor buggers if I ever have the urge to start tri training, (as in, I'll know what a bike is, I'll be able to do front crawl).

I'm just waiting for those nice people at the national lottery to choose my numbers and then it's up, up and away!

So in translation, you will train like a beast for a specific race - claim you're just doing a bit of cross training cos you find running hard then suddenly decide to do a tri on a whim with less than a week to prepare?

mmm, I'll just look up "Sandbagger" again in the glossary..........

It would be impressive, wouldn't it?

But easier said than done - you know, the old 'I haven't got a bike or a wetsuit' might just put a spanner in the works...

Had a look at the local tri clubs' websites. Way, way, waaaaaaay too scary! Too many men!

Come on Az, you know you want to!

<She'll be on that IMCH list by the end of Monday>

Azac....don't worry about not having a bike or a wettie....as has been mentioned on here, you can hire both for the season....a much cheaper option....

Ratbag - thanks for the encouragement! But I would be very, very surprised if I could get a bike or a wetsuit in my size.

Plus I'm chicken sh1t...

hehehehe....it depends upon whether you are big or small...if big then you can lose it, I guess...if small, then I reckon if wee Debbo can manage it then you can....

...no offence Debbo...

Oh, and if you are chicken sh1t then to coin a couple of phrases, HDFU and JFDI... 
13/07/2008 at 10:34

I've got the JFDI bit, but HDFU?

I'm small Ratbag. Very small.
Bikes do exist in my size but I don't know if I'd be able to hire one.
Had to have my diving wetsuit made to measure... I tried on the smallest off-the-peg wettie and it looked like a drysuit.
Bloke in shop thought it was funny.

Ah, funnily enough, I thought it was either Crashie or GOM that started the thread... I just couldn't be bothered to search any further.

Boing! with only a few weeks to IMCH I thought I'd drag this top thread out to find some last minute inspiration and it worked...... 
26/06/2009 at 14:16

Might be interesting to know...

How many people who hummed and hawed about having a go on this thread are actually having a go?

(Not me.)
