It's probably about this point in the thread that someone posts the following, so I will, if I may
IM virgins checklist
Anyone can do an Ironman if they train.If you don't train, you will fail.If you do train, you may still fail; there are no guarantees.Becoming an Ironman is a top 3 life experience.
There's a huge wealth of experience of training for an Ironman on this forum; seek opinions, ask advice, then do what works for you.
If your swimming is rubbish, get some 1-2-1 lessons now...yes, now.
prob around £250 ... roughly
That's what I expected. I can just about do that over 2 months.
