I haven't decided which ones to do in the run up yet.  I won't be at the Outlaw half though, as I'm in Surrey. Will be looking to possibly do Windsor again and at least one half distance, hopefully 2 beforehand.  Have done Marlow which I enjoyed and will look at the Cotswold 113.

The Outlaw.  Figured it was a good event, with great atmosphere and lots of support.

Permission to come aboard and drink rum with Pirates?

Just entered my first (and probably only) full distance tri.  Think I'm going to need a few Pirates and laughs to help me along the journey.

Thanks carterusm.  No I don't count anything to do with food, calories/fat/carbs etc. I thought all I needed to do was stay away from the processed foods / sweets and rice, pasta, bread and potatoes.  I don't want to get obsessed with figures/counting calories unless there is really good reason for it.  I'll try the LCHF diet for a couple of months to see if I feel better and if there is any improvement in performance/energy levels.

Would the odd sucky sweet be OK or do you need to remove all sugars from the diet as well.  Figured that as we can eat fruit, then maybe the odd sweet won't do any harm.  I've had a terrible dry throat and although drinking lots of liquid, I did have 3 sucky sweets yesterday.  Otherwise I kept on track and away from the carbs.  Feeling OK, although it is only 1.5 days into it.  Really enjoyed yoghurt, strawberries and grapes this morning.  Made a refreshing change to my usual wholemeal toasted bagel.

I'm in too.  Can't believe I clicked enter.  My first full distance triathlon.  Nervous, scared and determined.  Let the hard work begin.  Not a pirate yet, will work on that, as you all seem a friendly and helpful bunch.

I think I might be able to do this.  Didn't think of yoghurt and fruit.  Thank you.  I'll be back for support when my cravings kick in, and my willpower is waining.  I really want to make this work.

I like this new idea, but I am weak.  Don't seem to have any discipline when it comes to food.  But reading this thread has motivated me to do something about it.  So I'm sat here at work.  Lunch is sorted (mackerel and stir fry veg - no rice or noodles), but what can I have for breakfast - scrambled eggs, mushrooms, tomatoes?  Can I have a sausage or is that refined/manufactured food?

Ditto Simo429, but I figured I've got a year to get stronger on the bike.
