Duda I think ur right. As much as I want to smash Wales, my inexperience showed this year. I want to get an IM under my belt and Bolton is the place to do it as I am local to the course and can practice to my hearts content. All being well that will give me the confidence to push on and make sure I beat wales in 2016.
Having made the decision to do UK next year I still want to do Wales! I have a score to settle and don't know if I can wait until 2016! It's probably because my emotions of a DNF are still a bit raw. When I do return to Tenby I wang to be at my strongest. I won't be beaten twice!
After a good chat with my other half tonight, he thinks I should go for a charity place at IMUK next year. As much as I want to return to Wales, I also want the support of my other half, and he wants me to do Bolton so I can practice the course more (as it's local), and he can come and support me on the day (which he can't in Wales). So it looks like I'll be putting wales off until 2016 so I pray it stays in Tenby! Unless I take on the two next year..........
I'm trying to decide what to do. I had a DNF this year after missing the cut off for the swim. I do want to return to conquer Tenby, but am wondering whether to try Bolton next year and get my first IM under my belt, and then try Wales again in 2016. My concern with that is where in Wales it will be in 2016. Has anyone heard anything concrete about it moving from Tenby? If 2015 is to be the last then maybe I should just bite the bullet and come back next year!!
