Ironman Wales 2015 ....who's in ??

Posted: Yesterday at 19:57

Maiden IM for me.


I discovered how easy it is to remove ones wetsuit when still in the sea, albeit in just twelve inches of water.


I bet that's not allowed either, what with it being a wetsuit compulsory swim, and all that. Any opinions?

Hanging a bit of a cold here.

So I've enjoyed the past couple of days messing about with the MG in the garage.

It's not worth pushing the point and making it worse. Good luck to the fit ones, tough it out you crook ones.

Fantastic result Seren.

As it was a craft centre, surely they could have carved a Big Woody for you?

The list fairy doesn't often cross The Bridge. However, her nominated representative will chew off your manhood if you make a mess of this.

Hi gang
I've been avoiding this place, trying to ignore the fact that I've paid more for this entry fee than the sum total of every other race I've ever done. I'm glad I came here. There's more misery and despondency than there is in our house. Somehow I've caught a cold, and passed it on. Having a house full of wimmin who are hormonal due to being either teenage or menopausal is illuminating. It's enough to make you take up long distance endurance sport. Or get a shed.

Bike was good yesterday. 65 miles with hills. Followed by a simple 6.5mile run. Should have been a breeze, but it took an hour. At least my head's in the game now. Two weeks to go. Get pissed. Get a tattoo to annoy the wife. Then get a shed.

Apologies for neglecting the thread, but what a day to choose to return!

Fantastic well done to LMH, that is some awesome running, and a plan that was executed to perfection. Never mind the first place, which is good in its own right, you covered a cracking distance. Hold head high.

Oliver- clearly a belated welcome from me. 1:28 for what is effectively your first half marathon? That is some serious jogging. A concerted and consistent training programme and you will be on the Championship start line at London marathon within 2 years. I'm guessing that you have the (unfair) advantage of youth. Or perhaps I'm just hoping.

As for me, I'm just bumbling along, under-training and trying to blag it. I knew I had a cold coming on yesterday, but managed a decent brick session. (4h bike 1h run). No swim today, as I feel like someone who has a cold.
2 weeks to IMW.
Officially crapping myself.
