Is it just road marathons or all marathons Ikle? I had hurty knees the day after Manchester - I'd never had that before. I think it was the tarmac, I mostly train on softer ground. Good luck for the job!! 

Best of luck for you 100 this weekend Martin! Where do you finish up?

Dave, you have mail. It's definitely not about contravening copyright..

Thanks Mouse - I've seen such folk offering the excel plans, I'll try get hold of one. Maybe I'll work backwards, see which plan looks doable then find the book that accompanies it. 

In any case, I'll report back if I do in fact get the lady book!

Seren - I think you're right on the lifestyle front. For starters I don't have children and my husband liked me in the first place because of all my sporting pursuits. I think my hope for the book would be that it would address biological differences. Also a good point on non-ironman specific.. 

I'm leaning towards trying to get a cheap Fink from ebay or similar and then the lady version and doing a comparison article..

La Mula - I want to do Outlaw 2016. I raced the half there in 2013 and feel I have unfinished business. 

AliBear - Good idea. I've had a look and I wasn't offended by what was there and there is (thankfully, Seren nos) no pink to be seen on the cover. If there was I would refuse to buy it in principle. There looks to be a chapter on women specific tri kit.. I might buy it out of curiosity and bad review the life out of it if it does just turn out to be a 'pink' version of the usual Fink.

Daylight - I like the theory too. I'm wondering if the differences would be more subtle - there are definite biological differences between us.. but.. would the Fink's have the science to back them up? It would be nice to read something sports related that didn't assume I was a man, nor that I only want to work out to achieve a certain body shape..

Which race will you be doing Daylight?

I'm looking for a book way in advance of attempting my first Iron man next year. I've raced a half before, multiple marathons now and lots of shorter tris so I vaguely know what I'm doing, now I just want some structure. 

Which book should I go for? I know I want Fink, but which one - I'm tempted by the new women's specific book, but is this just another 'body glide for women' moment?

Susan, that's just awful, really hope you're ok too. Glad Aunty is getting better too FRC. 

I think I've decided against Stroud Ikle - I wouldn't want to make Basey mad at you And if I remember correctly it was after Stroud last time you said 'never again.' I've also withdrawn from a triathlon I could have done on the 16th. It has all gone a bit mad in PhD world and I need to fit in time with husband before I go away again at the end of May.

I have been swimming a lot this week.. 4 times in 6 days a lot.. I wonder if I'm doing a hen?

Ikle - It's May 10th (also my 30th birthday). I'm very tempted.. there are only 3 places left so Facebook tells me.. eeeeeee. I just don't know.
