WW - I went yesterday, talk about rusty. Lots of work needed so I've taken out a 10 month subscription and off agian in the morning. I will not be beaten

By the way, I wish I could do 400 in 8 mins!

WW - thanks for that nudge, it's about time I pulled my finger out. I'll pack my bag tonight and off to the pool first thing tomorrow morning.

WW - Is it normally less than that? Do Americans take longer?

I just want to get round before the 17 hour cut-off, never done one before but I'm so looking forward to it

I'm still on here ...not much swimming at the mo' as I've been concentrating on my cycling during my holidays (which is just as rubbish!). Got to be able to do 3.8km by next June

Mamfox - have a lovely holiday, enjoy!

Mowzer - it's great that you managed to see your son

SK - how's your achilles feeling today?

I could only do slow breaststroke before, now I've learnt how to swim crawl, still not fast or very pretty to look at. Honestly, if I can do it anyone can. I just need to build my endurance to be able to swim 3.8km. I suppose it's like when you start running and are really chuffed when you manage to do a 5km run and think "no way could I ever do a marathon" but I suppose you just build it up. I'm basically trying to convince myself !! I think the bike is going to worse, sat on a bike for nearly 8 hours - the mind boggles!

Shades - I used to wear a tank top as part of my school uniform! At least we all looked daft!

Mamafox - if it's any consolation, I had to stop and walk during a run last week because I felt jiggered. It happens, I mean if we were that good we'd be at the Commonwealth games wouldn't we!

SK - I reckon your 7yr old with his genes from his mum and grandad will make a cracking triathlete

Big G - IM Austria - chosen basically because the swim is in a lake so there's no risk of massive waves like I had in the half IM in the sea. I've got 17 hours to do it in but I'll make sure I'm ready for battle in 11 months time.

Mowzer - that sounds like a very tough training session

I don't usually go to Lidl as it's full of gypsies (seriously!) and they're very intimidating although I'm sure there are bargains to be had.

I'm doing a 9km tempo run this evening and it's just started to rain lightly which I'm very happy about - means not overheating plus less people about

hello everyone...yes been busy but miss you all so I've got to find the time to get on here.

Shades - well done on your PB

Big G - great news about the bike - I'm on strava too, I love it

Emmy - amazing runs at the weekend, I really envy your energy levels.

I went for a 24km run after work last night - started at 7.15pm and it was supposed to be a slow run but it turned out to be an extremely slow run. Not intentionally I just couldn't run any faster in the heat.

I've signed up for an Ironman in June next year, in the meantime I've got to concentrate on my next mara at the end of September.

p.s. that medal is lovely!

best book for doing a HIM

My aim is to do a HIM in June 2014, I've done a few marathons so I'm fairly fit, I've just bought a bike and I'm going to have swimming lessons. I've had a look on Amazon and there are loads of triathlon books. Which one would be most useful for me? Thank
