I am always exhausted at the beginning of July, because of work. I would be going into Outlaw off the back of a run of long hours and a 12-day straight stretch at work. Plus, the hardest/longest bit of training would also fall at my busiest time in May/June.
It would be far more sensible to go to Challenge Henley, when I will be more relaxed and will have had oodles of time for the long training sessions in the latter half of July.

But when have I ever been sensible?

Frodo you will make time for the training, especially if you have spent all that money, do the one that makes more sense! I want to do Outlaw as it is in my back garden so to speak and I have plans for later in the year...*hopefully* so won't be able to do Henley. Either way there will be loads of support at both

I shall no doubt have a full and frank conversation with my mentor before making any decisions (see, I can be sensible )
But it will have to wait until he is back from his jolly in the Alps and I've survived the Lakeland.

Does mentally imagining yourself doing the training count as actual training? I was dreaming about this last night...

Hmmmm - leccy or slum it? Can't find that section in Fink.  Which is a bit slack of him, since it's going to need much more consideration than the training plan.

NV - don't foget to talk into your cufflinks from time to time.

So far I have not told my himself either and I need to learn to swim and run as well as ride the bike , so you're ahead of me. There's also the small matter of funds that I need to work on as well. ThisLeccy stuff costs a few bob for a start.

Anyway I believe Mr Punch has done the odd race himself so surely you're in credit ?

I have tried to get my OH to read Holgs's book so that he gets an idea of what I am in for, but he won't

the lecce posh site definitely was a bit more expensive....£72 for 4 nights for a family tent............which i had all to myself

i am bac k off to read my triathlon book in the sun with a beer.............almost like training

24/07/2012 at 15:32

Sn thats £18 per night which is pretty cheap by UK Leccy Camping Stds thanks for that   Will have to see nearer the time but if tents aren't full perhaps we could rent out "rooms" to share costs?

could be worse, we fight over whose turn it is to train. I told the OH today whilst he was having his sports massage, that it was a bit inconvienient for me to have to go to Spain this week with him for his triathlon, as it was going to interupt my training!
