Thanks guys, I will look into camping Vs hotelling and make my mind up sooner rather than later, before all the hotels book up!

Swollen knees, Citizen 146? Don't talk about such things, else you might make me withdraw before I've started training...do most people ride TT bikes or normall road bikes? I've heard that it is somewhat "hilly"?

Hi everyone, I'm Lucy, I am a sport-horse breeder from Nottinghamshire with 5 children (under the age of 13) and I want to be a pirate. I've mainly done sprints so far (Southwell, Notts, Rother Valley, Lincoln) and did Dambuster Olympic a few yrs back. Am doing the swim-leg of the Outlaw as part of a relay team in 2 weeks and am signed up for Woodhall spa sprint, Nottingham club relays, Anglian water Olympic, Robinhood marathon (all 2013) and Wimbleball 70.3 2014 - which will be my first half ironman. If it's ok with you, I'd like to order:-

-some arm warmers

-a women's relaxed fit tri top.

 

Thanks

I have entered Wimbleball, are there any other half-ironman first timers on here, who have entered/are planning to?

No race number?!

Trying to improve 10km time (sub 50mins)

I personally stood completely still and rested, although i'm sure jog recoveries are better for you!

Hi Crippso, over the last few months I have been training to try and reduce my 5k time by doing 3 or 4 repeats of one mile at 90% effort with 2.30mins rest in between. I ran a 10k recently and finished in 47:41 - which was an improvement on my previous 10k race times (which were all usually around 50 minutes). I also felt really good until about 8k - where as in the past I have started feeling the pain at about 3k! I suggest you running a one mile time trial as fast as you can, and then running your one mile intervals at about 1-1.5 minute per mile slower than this. 

Simple training plan for sub 45 minute 10k

Hi, I have recently started running and triathlon training again after a 4 year break due to back operation. Previously i was running around 49 minute 10k's or 50 minute 10k's as the final leg of an Olympic length triathlon. I now have established a good base fitness and am running 52 minute 10k's in training but have not raced a 10k or competed in a triathlon of that length since starting running again.

I would like to speed up over 10k and try and get my time down to under 45 minutes - please can i have some tried and tested training plan suggestions? I am currently running between 25-30 miles per week, i have just started using a heart rate monitor and have a max heart rate of 185 and i am 35. Thank you!
