Phew s'ok - not my arse then

And er.....thanks Cat and Meldy for your hill "suggestions" - you both know first hand just how crap I am at upflats - whatever you have in mind for me I'll need something gentler!!

PTL - thanks for the link - have stored it for half term reading when I'm the only one in school and nobody pops into my office unexpectedly to catch me on RW !!

I am hearing lots of self belief and decent attitudes on this miserable grey day, dreaming of Summer/tents/and Outlaw.....

Last year, my first year at Outlaw, and whilst I was just a non-pirate civilian,  I got to the campsite very early, Friday at about 1000am .

I intend to do the same this year and if it is anything like last year will quickly be surrounded by pirates, I was impressed with the camerarderie (sp) and may be up for a small beer or two on the Friday night.........

very nice , but perhaps you just need to glamp it up a bit , air matress, chardonay, classical music on the radio...

editing isn't working at the moment Ali.....I will be in th posh electric hookup..got to keep the beers cold...and will be there by friday lunchtime no doubt

We'll be there Friday too but in a tent, those with the hook-up can look after the chardonay for me

Now to get Sunday's marathon out the way to start the training.

Tired Legs - good luck on sunday. Which marathon are you doing?

I've just done Amsterdam marathon so am now having a well deserved rest

How much training is everyone doing at the moment before proper training begins. Is it a case of just getting out there without too much structure right now?

Will not be in a tent come race day. Was one thing telling my husband that I was doing the outlaw. Another altogether to get him in a tent

Thanks. Will probably much reduce the running and try to up the biking.When thinking of slowing down on sunday I kept saying to myself "pain, it's going to be painful and you want to do an ironman"God knows how I'll do that run after the swim and bike

24/10/2012 at 23:19

For the next month or so I am just planning on getting out and having a bit of fun doing things I don't do in normal training, like trail runs up Pen-y-fan in the Brecon Beacons, and maybe going out on the mountain bike, and working on my form in the swimming.

25/10/2012 at 07:52
So I take it you don't book camping, just rock up? Planning on getting there Friday too. Will take a wonder over to the posh bit for a final charge of the Garmin...and maybe a cold beer or too!

Southern Snail - I'm doing Frankfurt, then taking a week of before I start training.  I shall be doing more biking and swimming compared to the running stuff.

Can't remember if we booked campong before or just turned up, will check with himself as he normally organising that.

EP - a year ago my slow pace was around 15/16 mm when I started using my heart rate monitor properly - it is now down to around 12/13 mm, so just stick with it

25/10/2012 at 09:08

not sure really when it changed - it was just gradual really. I think when I started doing the other training too - bike and swim that really helped, and losing weight has helped too.

well done on the swim
