I'd really love to do IM Austria - for me it'd be getting time off work term time - if I could get the Monday off is anyone fit to fly the day after an IM?

(And by anyone, I don't mean the elite under 10 hours types, I mean, to quote Meldy - the walk in the park types)?

Wales? Isn't that one of the slowest and therefore toughest? How do people that don't live in hilly areas train for it??

move or put lots of books under the front wheel of the turbo

In the interests of being "all inclusive" (jikes!) what about Forrest Man?

Everyone I know that has done it has loved it!

No Kk.........children are all indiviuals.......i have worked with under 12's all my adult life and i would never restarin a child unless they were a danger to themselves or someone else.....which is very very rare in children and  as far as i am aware not any behaviour your children have ever shown......as i said....this has nothing to do with Ironman or understanding my illiterate writings but i would advise you in future that if anyone comes into your house and restrains your children then you should never let them near your children again.......

anyway....maybe this has satisfied your attention seeking fix for this month......

You restrained my child in my house for no valid reason. It was an instintinctive response because you were used to your boys, it scared the shit out of her.

Brit, to answer your question, yes people are fit to fly on the Monday but its whether you want to fly and miss the party that is the question
Despite what you see on these threads on occaisions these events are a huge success year after year and as Crashie mentioned earlier continues to evolve, the aftershow party and the awards ceremonys are almost legendary !

Austria is one of the 'quicker' courses I would say, it is a beautiful course and accessible to a degree although not the easiest place to get to .. Wales yes its hard, you wll find it easier if you can train on hills but others have got away with it

Forestman is another good one!

Is Graniteman a full or just a half?

I think this year there are about 17 ones on.....I doubt they will all last for next year...........there is even one east anglia way .......or the one that goes from edingburgh and ends up Ben nevis

 or the one that goes through the night.we could go straight into drinking all day

Lol no!

Also I suspect some of the European ones wouldnt have a daily flight out?  Unless of course they are larger cities when the commuter planes are the order of the day

Almere is still top of my list Amsterdam is pretty easy to get to but i could be tempted by a UK one if its a goodie

I think the summary of this thread is


'We dont know where to go next year but its likely we'll go to Austria in 2015 if we start saving our pennies'

THIS is why it's gone down the pan in here.... No balls. I've just accused seren of grabbing my kid (which she did do a few years ago but it's passed now).

If J still remembered it, I would push the point. But it was wrong then and forgotten now.
