I am a (Sprint) Triathlete Having completed the Fleetwood Triathlon this Morning
A really well organised and marshalled event even the weather was excellent Thanks to all those who helped put it together
This was my First Triathlon but I suspect it will be not be my last. Someone warned me about it being addictive. Think I could be hooked.
One Worry I am starting to feel the need to wear sunglasses, self clad in Lycra, and I am experiencing an attraction to carbon fibre and expensive road bikes. Is this Normal ?
M. Thats what I was afraid of !!
SSP - Not Sure that is a good idea for anyone least of all me .
I'm picturing a shrink wrapped bumble bee
there's a regensburg thread around here somewhere.......

Not sure I can run anywhere after this morning....... If only I had a faster bike
Yes a faster bike is always an answer.. Start saving

If somebody started a thread asking about sweaty socks I'm pretty sure after a couple of replies one of you would suggest doing an ironman to cure the problem !!!
A serious triaflete doesn't wear socks..............
Oh Yeah you are on a pirate thread.. Socks lots of them yellow with go faster stripes
I used to live in Bavaria (Munich) its a nice place very flat. ........Except the mountainy bits which are very mountainy. Good Skiing too....but not in August.
I have a vague recollection of Very nice Beer in large glasses which contributed in no small part to the first part of my screen name
I have some friends who used to live in Regensburg seem to remember a big Church. I wonder is something happening there in August?
Ultra IW I was warned that this might happen.
Having only just started this year. Not sure I am ready for an Ironman just yet.....
My plan for 2011 is to do a few more sprints, an olympic (Liverpool) and maybe a first marathon (never done one before and Nottingham next Sept is looking favourite ). Also will do some more swimming and cycling events through the year. See how I go.
...........Now 2012 ?????
I'm getting a little frightened now.
Jack Sparra - You are saying the same as me did sprints & Oly this year IM next year.... thats my thinking for next year. ie IM 2012
Little Ninja - The plan of a half IM next year sounds slightly less bonkers.
Ultra I - A year might be plenty but I would only have 11 mths and I suspect some of those pirates were not also doing their first 3.8k swim, 180k bike and marathon on the same day. I would be.
Why do I feel like I am sat at the top of a really big scary roller coaster
