Stanners.....you always looked strong.great time

K9.......I always knew if you could balance the training and rest and arrive tapered then you would smash the Ironman......21st woman home  and 4th in your catergory in your first one.well done

Blue Peter........milking thge finish is one part of the training most of us neglect...


Darkness........You will have to do another one now so that you can get the family photo..amazing time

Iron Ripley......don't blame me for that bad habit....I bet your transition bag smelt when you went to pick it up ....


Too right Seren, that towel went in the bin soon after I collected my bag  Just thinking, this could be inspiration for a new item of Pirate kit: a Pirate piss towel...

Being Yellow you could use it for ages before you had to wash it

I'm still on such a high from Sunday, but I'm also feeling a wee bit lost. Sure it'll pass when I get back to training, but it does feel odd now that the thing I spent so long working towards has passed

What's your next event Nursey? Getting something booked in will definitely help.

I'm planning for Frankfurt Mara in October (sub 3 attempt whoop whoop), Eco trail de Paris in March then Outlaw again for next year (spousal permission is in place for the first two so far)

Ive spent all day wanering where I was this time last week. Any one else, keep looking at the clock?

14/07/2013 at 14:06

Yep, I just worked out where I was before I came on here, 

How is everyone's recovery going? I did early morning run then open water swim and a 2 hour bike this morning, all at easy effort so I guess mines going good.

don't want to overdo things but i'm still enjoying the training.

I felt back to normal by Weds...

I've pool swum gently Tues/ Wed/ Fri, lake swim Thursday and short run.

Olympic Tri yesterday - water so warm it was a non-wetsuit swim

swim and run today.....

Ripon, by any chance, K9?

Short bike Wed, 3 mile run Fri and 6 miles today. All good - glad to be getting stuck in again, really. Got Snowdonia marathon in October 

14/07/2013 at 17:47

Yes Britrisky....I've done it twice before. My slowest time yesterday...but mostly because of the no wetsuits I think rather than being tired

Have you done Ripon too?

Good luck with the marathon!

Did it last year - it was my first tri! Really enjoyed it, especially the barbecue after!

Are you a local, then?

Hour and a half away....but worth the drive as its a great event
