Should have chosen the same training schedule as me - starts with a rest day! My kind of training!!
My IM story..
I have done a few half marathons and London marathon a few years back. I enjoy running because it takes my mind off other things going on, and this year so far has not been great.
I had a season off racing last year, having been back to university as a "mature" student, so didn't have the time (coundn't be arsed, and uni was a good excuse to be lazy) to enter any events or train, after doing Cardiff half in 2011 30 mins slower than my PB I thought that I was a little out of shape and needed something to motivate me. In Feb I made a bet with my mate in the pub (it was a good idea at the time) about who could do Llanelli half marathon quickest, the race went really well, I won the bet and only having done 4 weeks training set a PB for that course. So I thought need a new challenge, IM was the logical next step.
Not sure who's logic I am following tho...

And idiots seldom differ
I run and cycle with music - I got tired of all the cars beping at me so now I just drown it out!!

Ahh, but 'Hallowed be thy name' or '2 minutes to midnight' at mile 16 when you need your second wind beats any energy gel
