Oops!!  Seren, forgot to tell you.  When anyone piddles in the pool at Macclesfield it releases a bright green dye.   Just thought i'd let you know

Remind me never to swim behind Seren. Thats enough to make me work on my swim speed.

Mrs SA...........I think it must be the effect of the cold water .........hopefully it is..i haven't done a pool swim for years in a race........

Seren, think it must be a "lady thing".   I need a wee more when i am open water swimming (sorry SA!)

Seren will give a urine sample without being asked by the sounds of it.

Not signed onto the thread for ages. Will it be ok to come along on the Sunday and have a crack at the bike and then the run? Will give me a nice 'recovery' after the Manchester Marathon the week before

Also if need some help on Sat for a few hours let me know the best time and I'll pitch in.

Trundle ... no problem.  Last year i just did the swim and the bike.  I couldn't run due to sciatica. If you could help on the sat, that would be great.  The more the merrier!

Trundle.My OH is only doing the bike and run on teh sunday

I might cut the run a bit short. Not gone further than 5 miles for ages. And I'm only up to 1200m swimming in the pool and 40 miles on the bike so will see how I get on and judge what distances I want to do on the day. Great to be able to do that, top work Mr and Mrs SA.

Soup Dragon - As a shorter alternative may I suggest;

Swim - 1500m. Instead of the standard 1900 meters (76 lengths) Why not push yourself up to 60 lengths/1500m.

Bike - 39.42km or 24.5 miles. This is 5 laps of the bike course.

Run - 10.14km  or 6.3 miles.  This is 2 laps of the slightly shorter old run course.

And there you have a very nice little challenge over the Olympic distance.....this is assuming it is ok'd by the governing body normally they are very nice

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I'll be bringing my running shoes along just in case I can get out on the run course at some time for a half marathon blast

can i shorten my swim to 100m please....i hate swimming

07/04/2013 at 19:49

Seren - if that stops your "problem" in T1 then the answer is yes. 

Thanks for the suggestion Marshallini. I was pondering a 1500m swim but thought about pushing to 50 miles on the bike and 10 miles on the run with a good number of walking breaks, and with the option of cutting that down to 6 if my legs don't want to play any more. That would be a nice little warm-up for Enduroman half the following month.
