I am hiring a wetsuit for the season So I reckon I may well do this one.

I've been considering this as it is miles away from me and I could sneak in an OW event to see if I can do it without freaking out.

I think it might have to wait for me...  Just noticed my road tax is due for 1.4.... plus I'd like to see Footman abou my leg...

we'll see.... >>ponders<<

Is Llanelli South Wales? SA15 - is relatively near to Swansea?

Its about 10 miles further west than Swansea - M4 junction 48 and follow the signs for Llanelli, then Millennium Coastal Park / North Dork.

Llanelli Tri always do T shirts. Last year I did the duathlon, triathlon, half marathon and 10K. I now have 4 Tshirts, all with the same design, but the wording changed as appropriate.

Oh, roll on 2008, I now have the half marathon T with the year changed! I'm looking forward to the tri.

TT - speed typing not my strength

I've been doing Llanelli Tri events for close on 10 yrs, I have many similar T's, they are quite good for cleaning the car tho.

Nevermind that, its a cracking little race, get yourself entered and I'll see you at the start line.

I'll see how my drowning sessions progress...  

The good news is I can do 1000m FC now... 

The bad news is I need about 30-40 secs rest after each 50m

Dont worry Nam, Llanelli is quite shallow so you can stand up instead of hanging onto the poolside.

I heard!!  TT says I can "walk the swim"...  Now I like the sound of that!!
11/03/2008 at 22:23

I am gooing to walk the swim Join me Nam...

Soooooo, if one is placed, does one get a medal though? Anyone know?

11/03/2008 at 22:36

I wish you hadn't said about walking the swim.  One of my OW fears is things under my feet.

Wear boots for the swim?

I can be happy with a tshirt.  Need something to prove I have done it...

Also need to start on my UK medal / tshirt collection

TT - off the current topic.  Which is harder:  Bala or Vitruvian?
