Re-run of last year's thread for anybody doing any 2012 iron distance race
Double session yesterday. Nothing today as left for airport at 0645, and finished at 11pm local.
What time did you get Hope?
All those much needed long rides will take care of themselves as the daylight hours open up, won't they guys? So getting in plenty of moderate length rides now is cool prep for spring. I bloody hope so anyway. I'm doing Wales, so not in quite so much of a rush, but I've not done any longer than 45 miles yet this year .
Not a fan of Conferences at the best of times, OC.... but I guess you're getting to squeaky bum time in the run up to Lanza now. All those greasy buffets, late nights in the bar, positioning yourself for a promotion/newjob/sack avoidance.... and the friendly suggestion from the keen girl with the MBA that "we all meet early before breakfast to work on our presentation"? Not what you want.
How soon before you can start OW swims down your way, Max? Or are they a year-round thing?
Cheers Max - I ought to just HTFU Now get some sleep!
day off today so heading out into the rain on the bike

I have just entered for Sunday. Very scared as have never done a Sportive before or a ride more than 60 miles for that matter.
Will you have pirate kit on? I would like to hook up with some friendly faces.
I am the same with the marathon training meaning a bit of a lack of bike training... except I havent really been run training either!!
Longest runs are 1 x 15 mile and about 4 x 11 miles.... and VLM is only 6 weeks away!!! I have normally ran about 3 x 18 mile runs now and would thinking about getting in 3 x 20+ mile runs over the next 3 weeks!
Windy and very wet 60 mile ride done. But have to confess to stopping off for a sausage sarnie and coffee half way round
better get in the pool for the first time in months soon!
Turbo and a run at silly o'clock for me today.
Pingu, I almost text you yesterday to see if you fancied a bike ride soon. Let me know if you're up for it.
I really need to start getting some long bike miles in. Lets hope for some nice weather for the next few weekends. I'm *so* over the drowned rat look!
