Thanks Duda - I will order it instead of attempting to alter the one I have. 

Fink Plan for half ironman

Posted: 12/10/2014 at 22:16

I have the Don Fink book for the full distance and wondered if the plan for the half was much different - I assume for the build and peak phases the times are different for the half than the full but is there much different apart from this.

Is it worth getting the book for the half or is it as simple to adapt the plan for the full and if it is easy to adapt what changes would you make ?

I am entered for a half in 2015 (Bala Middle Distance in June) with the plan to step up to full in 2016.

Can I request to join as well as now I am back in training I need the extra motivation of trying to get off the bottom of the table ! First thing it will make me do is remember to log all my training  and secondly to train more !

I am also more than happy to donate £5 and also think both Lanza and Wales in 2016 for the PSOF champs - some people might want to do one but some might even want to race and / or support at both. enough time between them for some people to consider both ? 

P.S. I am back in training so watch out on Welsh roads for the foreseeable future ! 

P.P.S on iPad so don't want to mess up the list so if someone can add me it would be appreciated.

Very glad to report that my kit arrived today so will head home after work and see if I can fit into it after all the excessive food consumption over Xmas.

many, many thanks to The Kit Fairy for all your hard work.

I would be interested in riding the course whenever people make it down and as I only live a few miles from the route i can make most weekends. If agnyone needs tents, camping gear or even somewhere to stay just let me know
