The Outlaw is the only tri I've ever done. I did sign up for Bala middle distance in preparation but had to pull out with an injury - and was I relieved not to be swimming in that chop
My aim was to complete and not be in too much pain. I did so with a couple of hours to spare and grin plastered to my face once I'd got out of the lake.
I'm still scared of the swim, I don't think I could have even started the IM Wales or Challenge Weymouth swims. My goal this winter is to give up the pull bouy On my solo pool sessions.
