226 km? eh? where is the extra 46 come from?....
15/11/2006 at 11:26
I think the 226km includes the sneaky extra cycling in the water and on the run.

(And if you are looking for flat, then Almere was very very flat - I do remember two or three slopes on the bike course and one of them was a climb of almost 5m...)

jo, when I was at school 3.8 (swim) 180 (bike) and 42.2 (mara) added up to 226. I think it still does!

ergo - yes I do, but only one.

i have 5 (if you include step- ones) and they all take IMMENSE pleasure in going on and on about stuff that they don't really care about if they know it will wind me up. in the same vein, i doubt very much that candy actually has any genuinely-formed opinion about roth...

ergo - I'm quite sure he hasn't!

and the beauty of the forum is, nobody ever really knows if I'm seriously pissed off or just putting the cat among the pigeons, so to speak.

lol!

Now officially full

I am relieved in one way - decision and stress removed can concentrsate on saving for a turbo in the short term

SP - we start in waves, and the river is so broad the swimmers can spread out right across to the dividing rope in the middle. I'm lucky because all the women go off in the first group, with the pros and the older male age groupers. You deffo won't be in the last wave - that's the relay swimmers.

So you will likely see LJS powering past you! If he catches me, I'll REALLY be struggling - but it has been known. He passed me before the finish in 2001's race.

thanks, smiley lady, for the special delivery via Doug, I can use the money right now!

Ok, I've booked the flights, accomodation etc for this one. It's no looking like Zuppy will finish but you know the drill, He'll do the swim and maybe a bit of the bike and sure when he's done that much he may go for a wee run.........
28/01/2007 at 14:46
Yes, we have all heard that one before!!!!

especially if he's doing well against the other firefighters!

where are you staying Jo?

I've worked out that allowing for the fact I start in the first wave and John in the last, and you're all faster than me - all being well, Doug should pass me somewhere around 20km on my mara.

The closest we could find was over 15 km away so I decided to stay in Nuremberg. It's even further away but should be more interesting as we'll be there several days.

Hi SL and IW,

I am also doing this,,, and swim is my big problem also. How do you know which swim group you are in?

Not booked any hotel yet but planning on a slow drive over, leaving UK on Wednesday.

I guess hotels are booked nearby so will also look to Nuremberg for a hotel,, how long do you recon the morning drive to the start would be?

Anyone doing any practice races? I am doing the SouthCoast half marathon on the 18th Feb,, but not signed up for an tri races yet.
