Buck.I fancy doing the arch to arc as part of a 6 man relay team.........as I would love to swim in the channel but could never attept the full thing

I bow to the collective wisdom. I'd lost sight of where a noob starts from. I was thinking if a fat, useless old duffer like me can do it with a base level of fitness and a bit of grit then anyone can. It was my second, I've suddenly remembered the 9 months it took to go from my first half marathon to my first Outlaw. And worse,getting to thst first half. You were all right, I was totally wrong. Ignore me noobs. 

As for the Arch to Arc, get me some funding and I'd be alk over that!

Budjude, that sounds fairly epic. Is there a link to the course details? It was certainly liven up the obligitory LEJO'G.

22 miles as a daily commute - an hour each way? - 10 hours bike training a week before even thinking of a training plan.....
repeat for a year or two and thats excellent base training....

10 hours training a week will potentilly destroy a sedentry person....

Well, 10. 74 miles each way. I exagerated wildy to try and win approval. About 35 minutes. I've only been doing it this year, but that us tbe plan; to build a bit of fitness by degrees. But I'm through trying to encourage noobs. It's impossible Give up now.

"Obviously I mean the 'proper' one where you swim the channel, not the new one I've just noticed where you kayak it. Me. Swim the channel. *falls sbout laughing* Still, I'd love to try."

The kayak one is on my bucket list. Thought a crack at the record bay be in order. Depends if you just want to complete or compete!! The bike is easily smashable, the kayak time not out of reach, just need to get into ultra running and again raise some cash.

Arch to arc "pirates storm the channel" The team raid sounds good. IMAGINE THE HEADLINES.

Nursey, you've obviously got to much time on your hands now that Outlaw is over 

27/07/2013 at 20:25

Forget the kayak, do it in a pedalo.

Yep .. pedalo has always been the pirate ambition

ask Barlos

there's some pedalo's near me shaped like a big swan, they would look great coming out of the mist towards France

 

28/07/2013 at 09:43

Barlos, pedalo, and swan. 

Now there is an interesting combo 

02/08/2013 at 21:18

Right

 I can now can swim a mile in the pool in about 50 mins without feeling tired

 

I can cycle 60 miles

 

 

I've run a marathon

You are a lot more further forward than many people have been at this stage in previous years ...

Buck, 18mph+ for 2x 10 miles a day should produce excellent results!

Graeme, that's a great place to start from.
