jezza - 

1.  you need a forum name,  choose one yourself other wise someone else may choose one for you.   (meface has gone so metits is next...... don't ahhhsk, just choose a name.

2.  there is no club,  there are no rules.    but we do ironman in varring degrees of badness.

3 we support each other as best we can.  we are all trying our best, we are all trying to finnish asap. as it hurts

4 say hi, here or facebook.  get involved, enter a race buy some kit, train

5 main race next year is austria, with an hon mention to outlaw.  IMUK gets  a mention in depatches as I am there.

the pirates are large / dispersed now so soemone will be going somewhere else

what a lovely day

Fastest pirate.... donald I recon - stonking performance, with maybe PSC next?  Nico mentioned in depatches.....

GB gave up after a nightmare bike, I gave up after 200m on the run.

nicely done to those pirates racing, but especially to those feed stationing / supporting.A long way to come for a long day - thanks  

Good to catch up with stuff I have missed.  Untill next time

im just swim biking now.....been having calf issues for the last 6 weeks,   physio dug around today.  nothing broken but they are extremely tight.  i fell of the bench as she was digging around in them.

a finish at barcelona is the priority so this will just be a training day now..... 

the trainers won't be coming

what is an invasive shrimp?

online coaching is it worth it?

I use everydaytraining.... (jo carritt/steven lord). About 70 a month but i pay yearly with a discount.

I started with them as i wanted to see how much i could improve.
2 years later i was going really well and started thonking sub 10 was on the cards. Swim improved, bike a lot but the run was going really well. Lots of nice staedy MAF/hr based run sessions really paid benefits.
Shame i broke (old rugby injury)
Biggesr thing i noticed in year 1 was bike volume. 4 hr bikes became 6 hr bikes.
Year 2 it was adding staedy run volume to the bike...
Now It helps me swim (different sessions every week), turbos vary whixh is good,
I het power advice as well...
It helps me personally as i hate letting people down, so some one asks me to ride 6 hrs -i feel guilty if i don't do it.
I also now have more focused sessions...... i used to overplan and under acheive when i did my own programs....

I justify it as its the same cost as a gym membership.... and i dont have one of those anymore.

I meet steven for a week once a year -on camp. Helps massively with training /prigram as he knows me know. Straight internet coaching can be tougher.

I atruck it lucky and i get on with/like my coach and we have a good relationship
Be prepared to get out after 3 months if you hate eaxh other... (too moany/heavy handed/ignores you/not naggy enough). We all need different things from a coach and all coaches are diffrrent
