AA - Which Fink plan are you following? I'm going to try the competitive plan, lots of training by HR so will have to be very disciplined, my IM is 18 Jun so plan starts November. So I'll be running by November. Keep that GFA place, getting in on the ballot is nigh on impossible after they changed the entry limit.
Nell - Hope you're fully recovered, good luck and enjoy.
Chick - Open water swimming is definately more fun, be careful with your wetsuit choice, as a female you will be naturally more bouyant and it is possible to be too high in the water. Agreed my hip problem seems worse after long periods of sitting down, but fortunately my job doesn't involve lots of sitting.
2old - Looks like a normal taper. Look out for the sniffles this week.
So no VLM for me next year, kinda gutted and I only know of one person who got a ballot entry, and she hates running!!! I think the ballot odds have changed from 1 in 5 to 1 in 20. So if I want to get in I need to run faster. Looking at the positive it means I can concentrate on IM but will I miss doing a spring marathon. Still biking/swimming and gyming. Hip is definately better so getting there.
