WW - I'm starting the "super simple training plan" next week. It's 20 weeks but I'm starting a couple of weeks earlier in case I'm ill or anything later on. 

Bobs YF - just us 2 then first timers?

I'm pondering doing this too as preparation for IMA. I live in Italy and everyone raves about it.

I know someone who qualified by doing 16.47 as the only woman in her age group in a particular race so there's hope for all of us at some point.

Bear in mind that 651 finishers had times over 12hrs (roughly a 1/3) and just over 200 DNFs so not everybody was a top class athlete.

Big G - pleased to hear about your decent breakfast. It will make you feel a lot better by eating healthy meals. Probate is a longish process but doing it yourself will save you a lot of money. You should be very proud of yourself that you're managing to organize all aspects. Hope today went as well as it could. 

Shades - I'm a pink fan my bike's pink  but my Brooks Glycerin are a lovely shade of blue. My running gear is black, black and black for the slimming effect.

Little brother managed to hobble home at the Ironman depite tearing his hamstring. It took him over 2.5hrs longer than previous times but he had to walk the marathon obviously. I had a great time although I felt obese amongst those pro athletes. I did a bit of running but by golly it was hot & humid. Is anybody doing any marathons this weekend (Emmy will be a cert I'm sure!)

it went dark at about 6.10pm...I'd finish in the dark even if it went dark at 11pm!!!

I'm just back from Kona as my brother won a lottery slot. I would never want to do it, extreme weather conditions  and quite a boring run course - nothing to look at all on the second half and pitch black. Great atmosphere as a supporter though.  Beautiful place.

Big g - well done on park run no.30! Don't push your Achilles, glad it was ok today
I'm in sunny Yorkshire this eve and flying from Heathrow tomorrow at 2pm...grass skirt and flowers for my hair at the ready.
Doing a run on Thursday it's an attempt to get in the Guiness w.r. Books for the highest number of people running in underpants. I;ve bought myself a pair of massive black granny knickers and will position myself next to the fattest person taking part!!!

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
