I'm on the reserve list for a relay team.....fingers crossed!
Just mappped out Fink, start date is December 12th folks!
so basically we have 10.5wks of pre-base "fun" training before the hard work starts
I'm trying to get basic fitness up for now by doing morning runs before work will aim to start including some morning turbo sessions (instead of a run) and weekend long ride oh and when I find my gym pass a swim or two mid week.
I'm following the just survive plan and as a teacher working silly hours (as per contract!) I'm already thinking ahead to the "essential" sessions when the training piles up!
I've got one last sprint and a half marathon to fit in before then, and hopefully a bit of a rest
Same here Stanners, I am going to start training using Fink a week or 2 earlier tho, might be going on a diving hol in the middle of the training plan.

Base training should be solid but fun. Small gear on the bike to get used to a decent cadence and lots of low heart rate stuff on the run. Swimming is over rated.
Wise words. Especially the last sentence!!
swimming is not over rated, its essential - i can swim for 1 or 2 hours and make out to myself that i have put in a hard session and that i deserve that 12" pizza when in reality i have splashed about a bit without drowning and that if i had spent that time running or biking i would be knackered
