IronMan Tattoo's

Posted: 02/06/2009 at 20:42

No no no no no. It's only a corporate logo.

 I used to have a TVR which I loved, I'd longed to own one for years. I still wouldn't have it tattoo'd on me though. Nor would I have a Nike tick tattoo'd on me just because I've run in Pegasus trainers for more years than I can remember.

 Seriously though, Tattoo's are a personal choice. If that's the sort of thing you go for then fair enough, but don't feel it's something you just 'must' do because you've raced an Ironman.

Give it 10 years and their solicitors will be chasing you down for breach of copyright anyway

You know I like nothing better than kicking your butt Muzzer but there was no way I could enter before the closing date with the Half Ironman on Sunday, I might have been a real mess after the race (I normally am).

 Vicky will be there to school you though so even if you don't have the pleasure on me beating you down then you'll still get beaten by a giiiiirl . She keeps threatening to get me running Ultra's with her so maybe next year.

 Might just have to do a long (less hilly) run from here now though just because you've got me thinking about it too much.

Got a Club Meeting on Sat afternoon too and the thought of upsetting Shelly scares me more than upsetting you.

It says "No Entries after 29th May" and "No Entries on the day"

I'm not as cheeky as you Jimmy to go emailing organisers. I guess I'll just have to live with the knowledge that I'm right again .

Muzzer, if I was going to 'run' at you're pace I'd have to put extra walk breaks in

Muzzer, Have fun buddy. Wish I'd entered now! Did 5min run/1min walk at Marazion and it was a revelation, quite fancy a long one doing maybe 10 and 1 to see how I'd fare. Based on Sunday I wouldn't lose a huge amount.

Don't get too drunk on Saturday night either

Wayhay - 31st. That'll do .

 We had a good strong finish after a gentle start, nobody went past us except when Rosie (the pup) decided she needed to go while we were in full flight. Nearly took her head off

Best Multi Terrain Footwear??

I'm sure people will have different views but for me you need 2 off-road shoes.

One for each foot

 Hello again poohshoe. What would you want to do in said trainers (not race the Caper now obviously).

I went round on Sunday in a similarly styled pair to 'deck the small'. They were fine and grippy enough for the race I was expecting to do. I couldn't have raced to full potential in them though. If you want to hammer round a course then I'd advise you follow fb's advice and buy a pair of fell runners. You won't get much from them in the way of support, so if you're injury prone then think/choose carefully but the grip you'll get will far exceed normal trainers. The only real problem with them is that if you don't run that sort of terrain regularly then they'll get very little use.

 I've used Walsh pb's in the past and they've been brilliant but I don't really run in the muck enough to justify them, although if I'm going well when Grizzly comes around I'll buy a new pair. I do most of my off road stuff on Braunton Burrows/Saunton beach but any old pair of trainers can cope with that.

If you can justify them get some fell runners for race day and some good grippy off road trainers for everything else. If not then anything with decent grip will be just fine.

We both had fun, always do at that 'race'. The pup had to swim up the flooded lane because her little legs weren't long enough and I wasn't daft enough to carry her as some did. That was about the only time she was behind me though and once we hit the Tarka Trail and I could let her off the lead she spent the majority of the race barking at me because I wasn't running fast enough (it's like running with a coach).

 I've a vague recollection of feed stations, but was a bit preoccupied making sure the manic mutt didn't take anyones legs out. She goes like the wind and is better off the lead than on, but Race Day running ettiquette is getting there very slowly .

Just need some results now. See how many people we passed after starting at the back (almost).
