The Outlaw - 1st July

Is he saying you can't because he thinks you are physically incapable or is it because of the time commitment to training, LB?
Both I think Frodo. He's terrified of the time commitment and I think he worries I would kill myself trying. I'm not the best marathonner in the world and he knows I wouldn't stop until they cart me off in an ambulance and I think it scares him.
I must say I'm disappointed he thinks this way. I really AM scared of water. If it were a pool swim I'd be happy but I'm a survivor of a drowning incident and I panic a lot. I really wish I learned properly when I had the chance. Maybe that's the first thing I need to put right.
If Mr LB comes back to live in the North it would make it much more likely. Right now I'm trying to be mum AND dad and I'm chasing my tail!
But its not a no.
LB - I was just going to ask you if Mr LB would be back up North. If he isn't, then maybe you'd be better off considering a half next year and then part of the relay at Outlaw. Then Lanza in 2013 if all goes well There's also a difference between not having the support and having someone against you doing something and if he's going to resent all the cost outlay/the times you'll be tired on weekends etc, it may not be the best year for you to go long. Take a few smaller steps first, get the kids cooking and cleaning more and 2013 will be easier for all of you
I'm also a bit confused by 'can't' and was trying to work out if it means
'but Darling, you can't swim'
'no, Darling, you can't do it. Not until the children are older, we've paid off more of the mortgage, I get a job closer to home' etc etc
The first one we can definitely work on, the second is more of an issue.
I learnt to swim as part of tri training and it is a real confidence boost. Finding a very shallow lake that you can learn in is quite useful, if you get panicked you just stand up.

No such word as 'Can't'. It just means you haven't thought of a way of doing it yet!
I'm guessing you being on here means you've thought of how you are going to do Outlaw
