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

Wow, what an event.  3rd time ive been to IM Wales and first as a supporter.  Wales is the the best supported IM event on the circuit, or at least those that I have been to.

The event is clearly growning year on yeat and has become such a culdren of humanity and kindness.  Well done to all those involved supporting, organising and to the athletes that put themselves on the line for something that isnt considered 'an easier race'.

I had a brilliant day yesterday, sitting here typing with sore hands and a hazy tiredness to remind me.

Only downer for me was the start, the rolling start really lets down the Iornman in my experience having been part of and seen so many mass starts.  Come on WTC get your act together.

Oh go on, I have to say it...

One of my most abiding memories from the Ironman races ive done was wading into the mountainous sea at Wales in 2011, bending over to rinse my goggles I was smashed to the ground and carried about 20 feet.  Later having made the turn and swimming towards the lifeboat station the picture of the 10 foot swell and memory of air stroking as I tipped the waves will stay with me forever.

Good to read that everyone is desperate with anticipation to hit the surf tomorrow morning.  I shall be along to support, driving there early tomorrow morning, hope to bump into some of you and other supporters around the swim start.

My advice would be to embrace the adversity, you entered Wales knowing it was a tough one, it truly is an epic race in every way an Ironman should be.

Good luck to all.

Uk iron distance reccomendations 2016

Cotswold 226 is iron distance. Comes highly recommended from me, grass roots type event and organisers go out of their way to provide/support you.

2 weeks between IM's - just too close

Posted: 20/08/2015 at 13:38

I think there are many different perspectives on the question and the answer.

What is recovery, is it to close, impact on the 2nd race vs expecations, relative effort and speed at each race and many other race day factors.

I responded with my own perspective and experience. 

Something I should add is that in 2011 (betwwen 2010 & 2012 when I did back to backs) I DNFd the 2nd Ironman 8 weeks after the preceeding event. 

Lack of fitness played a part in 2012, less margin for error when things didnt go well on the 2nd race.  It wasnt entirely fitness though, I had nothing in my legs from the start of the bike, this could have been underlying fatigue that had somehow carried from 8 weeks previously?
