I'm staying in the town so anywhere within walking distance would be good,......I didn't realise you were doing IMW flatfooted

From what I could tell of Tenbys pubs last night they're all full of gobby alcopop fueled yoofs, mind you holiday season is in full swing so I suspect they were host ly holidaymakers.

good restaurant recommendation though, Plantagenet, service was a little slow but the food was amazing, not cheap though.

Well enjoy that, it pissed down as I crossed the SSC on the way home this afternoon and looked pretty grim all along the Somerset coast down toward Weston Super Nightmare.  Hope it stays dry for you.

So, four weeks tohospital will all be over, and we'll be waking with achy muscles, and hopefully a smile on our face. 


Two more weeks of focused training for me, concentrating mainly in hills for leg strength on the bike and run, anx keeping the swim ticking over, then the taper madness can kick In

'hospital' WTF was I thinking, 'today' it should have read, but hopefully it wasn't a preminition.

Hi all, just a little bit of advise needed.  I am thinking of doing ironman wales 2014. I live locally to the race so can train all those horrible hills but have only just started swimming and cycling in April this year.  I did the long course weekend (the small distance of everything) and have run several marathons, my fastest this year in may was 3.39.  My hubby is doing the race this year and I am wondering if 12 months is enough time to get bike fit in?  any advise appreciated

you are fit as you can run a good marathon time so definitely enough time to get bike fit...........and you can train on the course which is a bonus.........

seren nos ... thanks for the reply, guess I had better get training!!! good luck to all doing it this year, I will be on the side line cheering you all on.
