is it not perfectly fine to just up a HIM plan to double lengths?

(please say yes as this is what i plan to do)

Depending on what plan you are using you might actually be overtraining? If you are happy with it and stuff cool but I would use the threads to sound out what your doing in a bit more detail and geek up a few training plans for IM and see how it fit's in mate. Inportant thing is the bike and getting in long rides in the build up. Well as well as being able to swim and stuff.

I wouldnt say doubling a half ironman program is ideal but it could be feasible depending on the plan?  All depends where youre at and what the intensity is like?

Why not just follow an Ironman plan, or quadroople an Oly plan

i have to be able to swim? shit  

i think i need educating in the world of longer events - will swat up over the winter - give me something to read when i am on the turbo (when i get a turbo) i guess.

running is my biggest issue - or should i say running at anything above a walking pace after a while is my biggest issue. anything above a HM and i struggle - that said not really done anything over that distance yet.

Should mkae chester marathon fun in October

 Marathon's are always fun mate why we all play at them.  

You have bags of time at the moment wto work out what you want to do training wise. You know what you need to do I think, which is more than I can say for me half the time. just keep carm and carry on.

as long as the pre marathon plan includes a trip to the Octoberfest in Munich the weekend before than i am IN

i dont do planning that well and thats happening. i return late on the monday before the marathon and hopefully will have more beer than blood in me at that point.

what could possibly go wrong........

Are we going to have a competition between the relay teams, to make things interesting?

Only if it's who finesh's last?

Thinking your's and Nursy's team looks strongest at the moment depending who that get for the rest of it. There was 7 team's this year so bet OC or someone will pop up soon and then you got a race on your hands.

I'd be interested in doing the cycle leg if mentors OK it. Would be a good way to put that daemon to bed if Nurse and Fraggle are OK with it?
