Well done Slokey, great swim and very impressive bike time, shame the run didnt go to plan. The conditions looked pretty decent.
Lorenzo- Weymouth Ironman is at the beginning of September which is a decent back up option as a couple of work colleagues are in it and will be camping, so I could join them for some cheap accommodation but the event is still £400 (I think). I'm reluctant to shell out that sort of money and I really can't be arsed to put in another block of dedicated training.
I'm off on holiday tommorow so I'll think things over, I did plan on having a couple of weeks off but I've somehow managed to sneak my trainers and swimming googles into the case.
Yes, the weather looks better, I've bought a new hat for the occasion. I've done all the training I can so just hope luck is on my side and I can make it to the finish line in one piece. I'm catching a flight to Zante early Tuesday morning for a well earned rest and will get a right bollocking if I turn up broken!
This years training stats, Swim 80 miles, Bike 3436 miles, Run 1065 miles, 400hours total training. (Fetch is great for these stats)
The bets are off but if I'm anywhere near Slokey towards the end of the race then I would have had a blinder!
It was nice jumping in the local lake yesterday evening for a couple of laps, although I did sweat my knackers off squeezing into the wetsuit. Tbh I felt a bit of a wimp as most were just in swimsuits.
A bike run brick session this morning and the legs are starting to feel nice and strong, it's amazing what a taper can do.
