Happy Friday to you, Funkin!

Congratulations on a great race and another wonderful report.

I'm thrilled that you and Sharon are going back to Kona next year, and already look forward to Kona Diaries, episode 2 .

Lovely report, Badger.

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

Posted: 18/09/2014 at 21:22

I have unfinished business, and the local support for IM Wales is unsurpassed. So I'm in, obviously. It was stunning this year (first time I've ever seen an IM from the outside).

Actually, so is Meldy but she hasn't acknowledged it yet. Maybe .

A huge Well Done, and massive respect to all who finished yesterday. It was great to cheer many of you on, and I hope you all had a fantastic day.

I still love this event. Yesterday was to be my last IM, at least for a while, but now I have unfinished business....

Thank you so much for all these kind words. Everyone is being so lovely, despite the fact that I basically allowed myself to talk myself out of the second lap.

Thommo, I do feel really sorry for you - at least you gave it everything. It is hard to know what to do next, as this new demon is going to have to be conquered.

After a bracing walk on the beach this morning, we have been out there cheering on the bike route, plenty of Pirate action including Funkin looking rather quick.

Go Pirates!!

Wishing I still was there too... Pulled out after one lap of the swim, just couldn't cope with the rough sea. Not proud of myself.

I think there will be shuttle buses to Carew, or at least there were in 2012.

Also....
I think bib numbers will appear on Monday, and on the 2 times I've done it, running up to T1 with wettie down to the waist has worked fine, so you could get away with a Tri top under wettie?

I've begun to wonder whether it's necessary to cut back much at this stage. This will probably turn out to be the classic error made by people without a proper training plan. I have reduced the length of my long runs since last week, and my long bike will be shorter this week, but until the weekend I shall cram in a fair bit of training. After Friday, though, it'll be a relaxing family weekend and v little further training after that.
Probably.
