Swimming cat,

Something else to think about, is start early, the sooner you can build on weaknesses e.g. improve your swimming or start building the bike base the better.  If you get the chance try some open water swimming this year while the lakes/sea is warmer.

Also, suggest finding someone more experienced as a mentor, they can possibly look at your plan and help you along, e.g. some plans are a bit one size fits all, you may need to add more bike training if that's a particular weakness.

Good luck

Thank you for all those who voted, narrowly edging out Seren by (I understand) 842 votes

It is very humbling to be thought of by so many people.  So many have contributed to the pirates in different ways over the years.

I said yesterday that its been a fantastic journey for me, ive made great friends, enjoyed many adventures and laughs, many of the latter at my own expense

It was very evident on the course at the weekend, as it is at many races, just how well the pirates are regarded or certainly how well we draw attention.  The support from other pirates, other athletes, supporters and more was a real boost. 

Thank you all

Pacing and nutrition will be more important, you can wing it to the end of an Oly a lot easier than to the end of a half if you blow up on the bike at 40 miles.  Have a plan and stick to it, don't get carried away racing others.  If you've paced it right you should be picking people off over the last half of the run.
