how about a target of the Vitruvian in 2011, while actually entering the annual pirate IM for 2012, (you have probably got to be on the ball for the euro events......)
Nice well attended pirate event, nice target of a half, so you can use the sprint and oly as the build up.
Hi everyone. Had a read back and thought I would bounce this thread. Well…… Two years is a long time in Triathlon and today I completed my 3rd Fleetwood Sprint Tri Knocking 10 mins off my original 2010 time.
Over the past couple of years I have been bitten by the triathlon bug pretty bad and have completed 8 sprints, 2 Olympic and this year’s Vitruvian… not bad for an overweight middle aged asthmatic .
On this journey I have learnt many new and interesting things such as the difference between 105 and Dura ace (about a grand), the respective merits of various training programmes (swim more, ride your bike and run about a bit) along with lots of new and interesting words & phrases like cadence, groupset, HRM, lactic threshold and bonking. It’s also become apparent to me just how many things it is possible to spend money on in a vain attempt to be a less slow triathlete. I now have a posh carbon bike road bike along with lots of shoes, gadgets, lycra and sunglasses I am still slow
Most of all over the past two years I have also been fortunate to meet loads of new and interesting people including a few of the pirates who previously would have existed only in a parallel universe. Really friendly and supportive ordinary people doing extraordinary things
Still not yet committed to doing the full Iron distance yet but now at least I can comprehend what it will take to do it. 2013 ????
