Hi all

First time posting in the triathlon threads. Have been thinking about doing an ironman but quite frankly it's all a bit scary. Have been looking at Henley but a bit worried about swimming upstream. And the cut off is 16 hours not 17. Is there a magic telltale way of working out if you're really capable. Have run 16miles today and am shot to pieces. Can't imagine doing another 10 having swum and biked first.

Would it be sensible to think about it a bit more or go back to lurking on your thread.

Hi sneglen.........no magic telltale way............you just got to ask yourself..do you really want it enough to train all winter putting in the hours even when the weather is crap.....

if you are willing to put in the hours then you can do it..........

+2 ^^^^

And buy Don Fink - Be Iron Fit and assuming you can swim and ride you can do it in 30 weeks if you're committed (if not you will be committed the minute you sign up!)

If you cant swim / ride, still possible in a year as long as you're committed...

Come join the rest of us 2013 first timers on the "Fatman to Ironman" thread, I'll add u to list, well train, laugh, cry and swear together...

See u on the dark side

Sounds like you have a great running base.

The only way you will find out if your a capable is by giving it a go.

De-lurking will really help

Sneglen,  I wouldn't worry about swimming upstream at Henley it's not fast moving.  Stick closer to the side upstream and take advantage of the slightly quicker flowing water back downstream.  I'm a back of pack swimmer and managed to do my quickest IM swim there.
