Hokori, that is easily the most beautiful race report I have ever read.

Great race reports, all, and some incredibly gutsy performances.

FF, it's not Raynauds, but I had the same at a hot, humid IM (did you also have headaches and light-headedness?). I think it's hyponatraemia due to drinking relatively too much water and not enough sodium/salts. Having to pee every few minutes afterwards kind of confirmed the diagnosis! Well done for hanging on in there.

First Half Ironman done- bike help needed!

Don't be afraid to give your club rides a try. Sitting on other people's wheels can give you another 2mph.
And so what if you get dropped? It happens to everyone, you just need to figure out a way to get back on your own. If you give yourself a trial ride, planning to get dropped, you'll probably surprise yourself!

Nightmare. So sorry for those out of the race, and fingers crossed for those still out there.

How realistic is a 6hr IM bike in my first ironman?

Posted: 15/12/2015 at 21:52

I do think that's unachievable. If you're doing Brighton marathon in the spring, you won't be doing enough biking, and with a 1:20 Oly bike time you'd need to be spending 10hrs plus on the bike per week, I reckon.

I somehow managed to pull both my calves swimming!

You ran first. It almost always happens to me if I do that

Most helpful thing would be to do a good long calf stretch immediately after all runs, and maybe a very gentle stretch before.
