Holgs I thought you were skipping the long stuff next year, or was that another pirate?

Discussions have started with my family, hubby has said ican if I really want to but I must promise not to get hurt or damage myself training etc. So just the kids to talk round now

I shall be good and not enter until they've all mumble the word OK or Yes or any variation on that theme.

By skipping the long stuff I meant I'd curtailed my plans to do a double. I am going to have one last crack at going under 12 hours.

Oh heck. Entries open. This means I need to make a decision

How long do people think I've got to dither about this.

Happychap - Thanks for the help the other week, but bad of you trying to get me to enter Outlaw

Help,help, help. Will this take my life over. Will I need to go to bed at 9 every day. I'm exhausted just thinking about it

Over 300 entries gone already, don't think you've got till November this year. It's a popular race.

Ok I'm going to talk to other half tonight. I know he'll support me anyway but up til now he's thinking that I'll just stop talking about it one day and it will become a distant memory.

Ironholgs read your book - fantastic read. Thanks

Thank you - very kind of you to say so.

Brilliant that you have the other half on board, that's a vital ingredient to Ironman success in my humble opinion.

Go to the website and count the names on the entered list or use a little trickery and copy and past them into excel.

330 at last count

Arghh OH is starting to change his tune now. He nows says he doesn't think I can do it. He doesn't mind me doing traithlon but I'm not capable of Iron distance races.

Hmm actually maybe he does want me to do this, best way to get me to do most things is tell me I'm not capable of it.

Book it now whilst you can. It gives you 10 months to help him change his mind.

Ali, do YOU think you can?
As Holgs has said a few times (and others) if you dont have full backing of partners and/or significant others it makes the journey a lot harder
What is your base at the moment??  ie: where are you at in terms of all 3 disciplines?

12/09/2012 at 18:40
Ali you can completely do this as long as you think you can. But, as all the others have said, you need buy in from the other half.

Cake I'm gonna camp Saturday night and I'm thinking Sunday too as Derby isn't that far away (straight down A52) plus I can crash straight away rather than 2hrs after finishing just need a shower! Getting the day off is not an option teachers don't get term time off ... I may try the water and see if I can mind!

My hubby and son said I couldn't do it so I am!
