Bandwagon gaining momentum!

And don't fear, this isn't a TripeTalk slow build-up plan. If my presence wouldn't be missed at the weekends and I could gather the funds I'd be doing it next year. If the dates work for Ben Nevis next year I'll do that, and it's practically a 3/4 IM (half distance, but the sea loch swim, off-road bike course and 'mildly undulating' run route seem to have an effect on the finishing times).

If you see me going anywhere near an Oly, shoot me. Waaaay too much swimming for my liking.

Hmm 2015 - I'll be well into the 45-49 AG then ...so I will either have retired or be making a comeback!

I also have seen the ben nevis off road half IM. 

That looks reallly cool...........and I am seriously tempted by this as well next year.

Foggy - well, it is going to be my only IM.

But maybe I should start preparing for a comeback in 2025.

OC - I would have gone for it this year but it was the one weekend of the year that my wife had booked away (more than a year in advance).  Grrrrr.

I think I got nothing to do that day on 2015...so sure, why not?

I might have recovered from 2010's im if I get around to doing it ... and by 2015 I'll be 40 too ...

Planning for a race in 2015 is madness !

I'd just take one year at a time if I were you and see where that takes you.

TR - madness... and your point is?
05/07/2009 at 21:32
Anyway, I've got a cunning plan - train until 2014, then taper for a year.

But I'd probably only start carb-loading over the last 3 months.

oh!

*hastily puts down sandwich*

It's okay Mouse - you're carb-loading for next year. Pick up the sandwich.
