Ah but this Longest Day is not in sunny climes, still I need to get a plan for next years racing, starts with FLM so I figured I could use my endurance base from that to build up to an ironperson (to be pc about it)

Dazzy - you'll be a lot faster than me - i intend to pace myself to get round comfortably then use what i lear to aim for a bettr time in florida

Did TLD this year. Cant praise the race and the organisation enough. You will have a great day. Managed 10:49 but I don't think anything can prepare you to run a marathon after 5.5+ hours on the bike.

May be joining you next year.

Re:WildWill "Learning" My first mistake in my 1st IM, was not drinking soon enough getting on the bike.I started cramping at 75 miles (made the run fun;-))

Ouch -

I've learnt to drink lots - at my size you burn a lot of kcals hence need lots of water

Now my triple marathon attempt is over I'm going to begin my swimming training for TLD. Doing a Biathlin in December which will be my first taste of swimming and running together.
