OMG just seen this.
KK You are a crazy crazy lady
KKat - I couldn't swim a length of FC this time last year. In fact I couldn't swim a length until about February of this year. In Austria I started a minute after everyone else and let them get on with it. I bumped into one person and the canoes on either side of the course but made it home and I am the slowest swimming pirate on the planet!
I hate swimming but I went with the plan to finish just within the cut off of 2:20 and ended up finishing in 1:47. Still slow but I was so chuffed cos I knew that the worst bit (for me) was over.
Get a swim coach, sort out technique (I've never managed to do that) and the distance will come.
Jags, that makes me feel better, good for you btw. I know I can swim distance but just so slowly.....
I'm now in the process of emailing local bike shops to ask about the service they provide...
Kathy - er...yes I guess
Good luck KK. I must admit I nearly entered an Ironman myself earlier this year - financial implications would however have been too much for me just now. Got one earmarked for 2010 or 2011!! - should I start training now
Make sure you inform us of your blog site...
Don't think i'm being negative - i know you'll do it!
You have PMA
If I'm not p*ssed in a bar somewhere, of course Garr
