Thanks for the reply.

Behind in training for Ironman half and Full UK this year.

Posted: 25/01/2015 at 11:50

I've had a few nasty  bugs last 6 weeks that have wiped me out so my training has suffered plus work and moving home issues.

I'm doing the Staffordshire half and Bolton full UK Ironman. I'm also doing the London Marathon 26th April, I'm upto  half marathons running wise, 1 mile swims (always been a good swimmer ex lifeguard ands coach) and upto 30 miles on the canal on a mountain bike that leaves me feeling not too tired tbh.

I'm starting to get a bit worried I've left the cycling part too late? To get upto 70 miles by June and 100 miles by July.

Outdoor swimming in West Yorkshire & which website for cycling events?

Posted: 29/12/2014 at 09:38

Hi all, hope you're all having a good festive holiday.

I'm looking to start my outdoor swimming now in preparation for the Ironman. I'm based in Halifax, West Yorkshire. I just wondered if anyone knows of any weekly events or training in lakes I can attend near me thanks?

Also for the cycling I'll do one session a week with a club on a Monday/Tuesday but for my long cycle I'd like to do organised events, like cycle sportives or Audex's, I've had a nosey online and there seems to be a few different websites but is there one definitive website that I can put in my location and maybe even miles wanted to cycle and it shows me results from all other sites/evens/organisations etc?

Thanks

Hi all, few friends and family are doing the Brighton marathon so  I wondered if anyone had any advice on accommodation, staying sat and sun.

Thanks

Any Triathlons or Duathons before next April from now? Winter events?

Coming from Yorkshire I don't doubt that though the sea swim I'd hazard a guess is a lot more hard work then in a lake, and the Wales course is a tad more hilly.

And I watched the wales ironman! That must count for something.

P.S I wont be doing that one ever, hats off to those that did, that looked brutal.

Hey I value  your input as others. Bike at all costs. I'm getting  the idea whats involved, tbh I knew I'd struggle on the bike hence the pull out from this years ironman.

I did, I've admitted that. Not sure if your just having a dig now  tbh, nothing untoward here. If your bored then move on, happy to take advice  but you just seem to be posting to ridicule. Not even sure what the aim of this discussion is now tbh. Im aware im unfit, im aware whats involved, im aware I need time on the road bike not the mountain bike.

I did lose a lot of fitness quickly in the summer, I actually started a new job april that was 8-6 office job so found it hard to train, so now back working from home for same employer so I have that flexible option.

I'm quite lucky in that I work from home for my employers so can fit in training around that, and if a swim session takes 2 hours I just work later that day.  I also live 2 mins from my gym so weight sessions at 7am are easily done.

I do get the sense people think I'm a newbie and a bit unaware of whats to be done but that's far from the case.  I went to watch the ironman Bolton this  year and I've watched them all on TV, yes I know means nothing but I use it as inspiration.

I got my runs upto 20 miles and swims up to 2.4 miles and cycle upto 40 miles this spring just gone, I just felt I wasn't fit enough combined and the 2 months missed due to injury meant I would  struggle at the ironman so pulled out and went to support instead.

I'm under no illusion the task ahead and how big a challenge it is, I've done 5 marathons so have some idea of sacrifice yet I know the ironman is a whole new level.

Last few weeks has been about easing myself in, some swim sessions,  sprint tri, great north half, and  a few running sessions too. Nothing structured tbh for the first month or so.
