I'm all up for 2013, just would prefer somewhere at least a little warm! Living and now training in Manchester has given me my fill of cold & wet! NR, have you checked out Get Iron Fit? Some great time saving tips and at least the first 10 weeks of the just finish plan only calls for max 6 hours a week.
Hi SausageDog! Glad you didn't change your name after reading the first few posts, its given me a good chuckle at my desk!
I'm new to the site myself - hello all! - though not new to triathlon having completed a few sprints and olympics up until Llandudno 2009 when i knackered my back on the run then in Jan 2011 I snapped my ACL and am only just back - scuse the pun - to a (fairly) good knee for running. 2 stone later its back to square one and my aim is to complete an Ironman in 2013 and a Half IM this year, probably 70.3 Miami - if I have to suffer why not somewhere nice!!
I too am attempting to chronicle my deeds on my blog http://darksideofthebike.blogspot.co.uk I thought i'd check out the pirates triathlon crowd after reading a book by one of them last summer, so here I am! be gentle with me!
