Is there cut off points for half ironman like full ironman?

Mark - wise decision, I know how weighing scales can be an abrupt wake up call. As Cougie said, get started now, no drastic dieting - but healthy eathing. Turkey will be lovely and if you're ready you'll enjoy it.

WW - hope your Dad's ok

I had a bike fit 10 days ago and apparently my saddle was the right height but too far back so I was overstretching. Loads better now, backache and neckache gone. I've done 80 miles max on the bike - recovery week for me this week 

I had a go at swimming in the sea...I did 3 strokes and then started breast stroking, I hated it. It was very windy with big waves and strong currents but I was the only wuss that didn't manage to swim properly. I've now signed up for the Great North Swim in Windermere in the hope that it'll get me used to swimming in a lake, fingers crossed.

WW - that's good going! well done. 

I had a swimming lesson the other day and they videoed from 3 different angles, obviously I asked them to photoshop my cellulite before e-mailing it to me.

Thanks for your thoughts, I'll archive that idea then and put my feet up! I'm a bit anxious anyway so I'd probably freak myself thinking about certain hills or bends etc.

does anyone think it's a good idea to drive round the bike course on the Friday or is it better to not know and just do it on the day?

I haven't done any OW swimming yet - I need to see if I can fit into my wetsuit! I was slimmer when I bought it last year

I don't think I'll be in a fit state to realise what my finishing song is ...but i'd love it if it was an Abba song

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
