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

Podds - of course we want to get our money's worth which is why we'll take so long

That's great news it means I'm going to have a very peaceful 2nd lap then in Austria!

BB - it's all relative, I'll be happy with anything between 1.30-1.40. What are the chances do you reckon of a non-wetsuit swim? How often has it happened in Austria?

BYF - 17mph is ace - you'll be lapping me!

BB - what do you call a half reasonable time?

I did 12.5 hrs training last week which is my max so far, very slow in all disciplines but I'm trying!

MD - thanks for the explanation and I understood it  miracle! I've just counted and I've got an 11-28 already! On today's commute  I've been concentrating on high cadence and small ring at the front  rather than me slowly pushing a bigger gear. I wasn't much slower and I wasn't tired at all.

Cougie - I did my winter training on the turbo and now I'm doing the commute to work twice a week (24 mile round trip). This is fairly flat so I try to go fast and do the odd sprint and then I go long on a weekend. I've just entered my first ever "Gran Fondo" on April 25 and its profile looks like it could be a decent training ride:

Mouse - Thanks, I'll definitely try putting my weight on the pedals. My Dad is flying over in May to give me an intense course in bike handling and maintenance so that'll be very helpful

Meldy - yes, great advice on here and I'm quietly optimistic now! As for pedals I've swapped over to being clipped in

MD - I've got a compact so it make it easier getting up hills, I don't know what a 11 - 28 is. I've got a garmin and I'm on strava so I do get to see what my ride looks like, and what I thought was a decent ride for Austria turned out to be nothing like as it was uphill all the way for the first half and then all downhill

Rafiki/Symes - will try not to!!!

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
