Schmunks, if you're out there, Rafi needs knee-length pirate socks

Crash Hamster, I wasn't trying to denegrate anyone's effort. For full disclosure I do ride 22 miles a day flat out in top gear to commute. And I enjoy running and do marathons to keep my hand in. There's nothing to say about the swim mind. Crap.

Was it just me or was it a bit warm this year?

See you there next year. Who fancies the Arch to Arc? If I could raise the cash I'd love to have a crack at that for my 50th. Bucketlist tri.

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.

Swim the channel? Am I allowed to touch the bottom or hold the side if I get tired?

26/07/2013 at 13:09

i fancy doing the Lands end to john o groats tri - been kicking the idea around twitter for awhile. bike clearly, but then swim the length of loch ness, windermere and bala and run / climb highest points in scotland, england and wales.

would be brutal - some soliders did it a while back.

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....

27/07/2013 at 00:19

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.

I'm thinking team Meldy's Misfits could invest in one of these for next year.  Whaddya think Rafi?

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
