wetsuits - rent or buy ? ( not that its an immediate activity at the moment as Id probably just use a tin of black paint and use the built in suit of blubber )

ironman distance Cake?  I mean, if a long suicide note is needed, then full iron distance is the ticket...

im not saying no, im just pricing up what yes means....

wouldn't bother with wetsuit yet for swimming, maybe look at buying towards the end of year when the new models come out and get some great bargins on this years models, plus the OW session is starting to close.

31/08/2012 at 21:42

I've been commited or have commited not sure if there is a differance Outlaw 2013 here we come based on no tri experience and going the couch to ironman route now just need to work really hard and learn to swim bike and run

Oh yeah, that reminds me.
Next week I've got a sprint tri in the morning and a test of my flying in the afternoon. It's a good job I'm not going for a lash up and BBQ the night before. What? I am?

01/09/2012 at 21:30

Got Fink planning to do intermediate plan started training to heart rate zones but having difficulty with Garmain reading my heartrate HRM and watch are both fine as work ok on Husband watch detects HRM but will not maintain reading I have ordered some connective gel to see if it helps really frustrating....what possibly go wrong huh

Havent streched to a garmin yet. Using my polar till new year then 910 for late christmas

Seems everyone is going for Iron Fit by Fink rather than 24 weeks to ironman by huddle?
Grabbed the former on kindle whilst the paperback meanders its way ...
01/09/2012 at 23:04

I'm using the base bit of Fink as a guide at the moment, seemed like that was the most recommended, and so far so good. No HRM yet though so doing it on percieved effort only, but just finished week 7 seems to be going OK....

12 week triathlete by Tom Holland isn't bad either
02/09/2012 at 20:44

OK. bought that too...

just about to hit the turbo for 40 mins l2.  oh joy.

had a trawl around suits and doesnt appear to be a whale option so it will have to wait until spring when the their shape fits my body. - does rather make it another hurdle to punt outlaw signup at though.

talked myself out of a garmin910xt+trimmings, twice.  must hold out until xmas and ive lost 40lbs...

legs are a bit sore after yesterdays 3mile run. still, onwards and upwards.

Put xx amount of money away per lb lost and then treat yourself to a Garmin ... 

02/09/2012 at 20:52

I actually quite enjoy an hour on the turbo so long as I can park myself infront of MTV

The puddles of sweat always make the pain seem so worthwhile and I always feel thinner afterwards

Time for another run. 2 miles or 25 mins ?
