Just made decision....!
Sounds like a close call!
No doubt the journey to Bolton will be full of ups and downs that will need negotiating for all of us!
I think now i have booked the hotel, i can relax a bit and it lets the family look forward to it that bit more.......Its got a swimming pool....and a jacuzzi! Get in!
Swimming's coming along slowly .... veyr slowly.
Yep, me too!....Life in the swimming pool slow lane......Target..Medium Lane for New Year!
I'm only targeting the middle lane for Easter
I'm not too concerned about speed (yet), just consistency. I can now manage about 8 lengths without a breather ... just waiting for the 'click' when I can just swim on and on, must be close to it.
Ok folks time for a 'Bonkers' roll call!!
Stephen Kav 4...Newbie
Rocco...?? did you get in??
If i have missed anyone (or got info wrong) then add yourself on!
There are a few experienced Ironman contributers to Bonkers as well, like Andy, KK, Rafiki etc...and all advice greatly appreciated.
Lets all jump on the bonkers boat to Bolton!!
With the weather up here at the minute, we need an ark not a boat!

Joddly sandbagging as a newbie.....
Hey - I never said I was a newbie!
I think TT means new to Bolton, though, which is true. Ooop Narf is uncharted territory for me.
Rocco - do Wales.
Just had it pointed out to me last Saturday, that my body is snaking through the water. It seems that I am not engaging my core and my legs are just swinging around causing drag.
To rectify this I need to engage my core, increase my leg kick to a 4 beat kick and also ensure that my toes touch as they pass to prevent scissor kicking, another bad habit I have aquired.
Apart from the above everything else isn't to bad.
Rocco - Sorry you missed out on IMUK. I have heard and read very good reports about IMW, so best of luck if you choose that event.
Don't forget SausageDog.
So to tie in with training plan I'll be doing the Blaenavon Triathlon next year (only a few miles from me ....KILLER hills), and I'm looking at the Grafman for the half, anyone else looking at either of these? Grafman seems to tie in nicely with the Fink plan.
Hi ..... I am hoping to join you to make it 4 years on the trot and was planing to take a charity place but, it would appear all places have gone I'm now on the charity place waiting lists.
