Brighton Marathon Accommodation Advice

Posted: 07/10/2014 at 19:40

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.

 

...joke.

 

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.

Blimey is this a witchhunt! Theres some very judgemental people on here, sorry to disappoint but simple answer was I was busy yesterday with work, school runs etc.

I am fully aware of the amount of training needed, hence starting 3 weeks ago, well 4 as I included the great north run as part of my training.

Oh and I agree on the experience on here comment.

Train, train, train, I get it. I presume we all have our own little mottos, or sayings to keep us going on those cold dark sunday mornings at 8am on a bike or running. Mine is Better Never Stops and I always remember this when struggling.

I actually thought in the winter people put their road bikes away hence the mountain bike sessions.

I had lost a stone early on but due to not being able to train didn't lose the rest and since then have put it back on. I  am fully aware of my diet and when I'm training I eat well, clean and hardly touch the booze too. I tend to be an all or nothing person, if I'm not training for an event or something or have a purpose I tend to eat badly.

I was overweight at the start to begin with and missed about 12 weeks in total of training  due to niggles and injury so didn't lose as much as I usually do, caused by trying to do too much in a short space the time. Usually I start January but have started 3 weeks ago so I can ease myself in and not rush it.

Nobody is blagging anyone.
