Have just made the decision that for my 40th birthday next year and my official mid-life crisis, I will not be getting a sports car but I will be going for Bolton IMUK! So my first question, if anybody can help me, is...is it easy to get entry? Is it first come first served and fills up within a day like London Marathon! Cheers all, Tonka

Try google. For ironman uk

Yeh, I did try that!
Doesn't seem to say yet so if anyone knows would appreciate it!
Obviously trying to get all my info straight and then I guess pick everyone's brains on training!
Cheers

I couldn't swim a length when I entered my first IM

Thats actually quite reassuring!

Where did you start with the swimming (dont say in the water!), books or lessons or...??

Yeh, that definitely cheered me up!
I am a few lengths with lots of splashing at mo, so hopefully the only way is up!
One of my next tasks was going to be choosing a new bike. I currently have a giant escape r2 hybrid which all in all is a pretty handy little bike.......unfortunately the clutch on my car decided to let out a loud screatch and like a big kick in the nuts this is gonna cost ??800!! At these times I seriously hate cars and my mindset at mo was just to think.....'ok, that could have been a decent new bike with carbon forks!'.
So looks like a bit more saving and maybe just shoes and clips to go on the trusty hybrid!!!

I here Bolton has a very similar climate to lanzarote!....., and hopefully if there all stocked up with wotsits i'll go for the record!

Just a car that worked would be good at mo!.....sports car defo few years of saving pennies in the piggy bank now!

No car means more bike riding

KK - the bike route goes past Brad Wiggin's house so what more could you ask for.

Definitely getting sidetracked with wotsits now, although i have just had some with my snack!  (poss wotsit training???!!)

Have been looking and looking and even though car has dented wallet, I am seriously considering the entry bike package offered by tri uk:
Wetsuit
Tri suit (although I think separates would be way to go when it gets to race time)
Pedals,clips
Goggles
Cycle hat
Giant defy 5 roadbike
.....all for ??599!!!
Considering I may or may not continue with any riding post race ( I am a runner by heart) and I may well sell bike on after, this seems like cracking deal....
Anyone any thoughts...???
Also would box of wotsits, or multi- packs be better, and what happened to prawn cocktail flavour wotsits or did they just never exist??

Its is a good deal certainly ... this time of the year a lot of last years bikes are sold off to make way for new ones
The packages usually attract buyers tho

Do some research and see what you would have to pay for the larger items on their own
