Thinking positively - doc says I'm to continue swimming and cycling, so if I do get operated on in early March, I won't be too far behind schedule, my IM plan was only meant to kick off at the beginning of April anyway. Plenty of time to pick up on running.........................I've often run marathons off a 16-week plan! Haven't been smoking something funny, honest. And lots of peeps end up doing run-walk anyway.


Always optimistic that's me. Or should it be "blinkered"?

That's rubbish UIW

At least with the new WTC rules on changing events you would be able to cancel and get a 2013 entry for almost no cost

Challenge Vichy for 2013. I fancy trying a flat course for once.

Hi  Mrs Z... could you perhaps wait at the bottom of wisemans bridge and push me from there to the top of saundersfoot please

Well Slagiatt............

 I am absolutely positive you wont need it judging by your success this year........but if theres a bottle of wine at the top im sure I could be persuaded!

Just had a look at Kiln Park for the Long Course Weekend in June. Is that where most people stay when they're down there? Prices looked shocking, tbh;

£171 for a basic tent pitch for 4 nights
£225 for my folks to hook up their caravan for the same duration

Does anybody have any alternative suggestions or better ideas? There's a mention of Hungerford Farm on the LCW website, but it looks a little way out of town. Thanks!

Just paid my money so there's no going back now

Just got to sort out accommodation for the race weekend, how long do most people book and stay for? couple of days before and a day after? i know it's probably personal preference but any advice on best length of stay for an ironman noob would be welcome.

If abroad, arrive on Thursday, register and rebuild bike. Friday relax & pasta party etc. Saturday, rack bike and more relax. Sunday - race. Monday - Drink beer and relax. Tuesday, get sherpa to pack and leave for home.
How much time do you have ??

I remember being a little shocked at the camping cost  for 4 nights in late september at kiln park, for a tent. - ie £80-100 ish I think.....

however that was not the peak holiday time.....

and it was wet and windy.

and we left after 3 nights

but kiln park is close(ish) to the action - no having to drive into town is an advantage.

The pub is 'interesting'

the whole place is "interesting!"

any campsite that has a burger king on site is always going to have its characters! - imagine going there in the hight of the school holidays

i don't think anyone stayed the last night - irene saw to that!

lol, well I booked a tent pitch for 5 nights to give full flexibility, £63 for an electric pitch, cheap enough even if it is 'interesting'
08/12/2011 at 22:21
Il'll probably be back as well as i m struggling to justify the cost of the hotelsin town.....

I booked a caravan as soon as the dates were announced and it cost the same as me and a couple of friend paid to camp in that boggy field...
