I assumed he was riding home as well. Not as impressive as I'd thought. 

2 weeks between IM's - just too close

So, due to rather odd circumstances I've got entries to both Wales and Mallorca. 

Due to a bout of illness a couple of weeks ago that knocked me for 6 I definitely want the extra time and will make Mallorca the 'A' race.

The question is, do I do Wales? Do I bin it. Do I do it at training pace? Am possibly thinking of racing through to about 20km into the run and jogging/shuffling the rest. 

Am fairly fit, doing 15hour training weeks and looking at 10-11hours (maaaaaaybe sub 10 at Mallorca) time goals. I could quite happily do the swim and the bike and not be wiped out from it.

Anyone tried this or have any knowledgable suggestions?


If you think you need more time then you need more time. To train and recover. If you want Mallorca to be an A race then emptying the tanks (it's impossible to do an IM without causing a lot of fatigue) two weeks before is lunacy. 

Yes you can complete two - but if you are targetting a result then drop Wales.

IM Wales

This is the 5th Anniversary of IM Wales. It is a course that is far from easy, but the local support is supposed to be excellent. It consistently gets rave reviews from competitors and spectators - maybe find out what the buzz is about?

I'm in a girls only cycling club in Hull - there may be a couple of bargain bikes (possible one for free if you make a good case) among our members - but its a bit of trek from County Durham?


A bit of a Trek?
