Tin Man
Making a decision whether to target and Ironman in 2010 at the ripe old age of 42!

Sterted tri last year just before I was 40, probably as a bit of a mid life crisis.

Thought I would use this to set out my thoughts, plans and general feelings.

Outlaw- 37 weeks and counting

Kenwood Triby Kenwood TriOct 17th 2012
Hello world, made a decision a few weeks ago to enter the Outlaw Triathlon in nottingham next July. 10 days before my 45th birthday.

I have "competed" in triathlon as a mid-pack finisher since 2007 when I was talked into it by a couple of friends in the local gym. Since that day this has become a bit of an obsession although to date I have mainly completed sprint, a couple of olympic and the Beaver Middle Distance!

So there I was at the Outlaw web-site thinking should I or shouldnt I.. Anyway before common sense took hold I filled in the form, paid the money and started oin a 40 week oddysey!

First stages are that training is going well, purchased the Joe Fink book Iron Fit and I am using this as the base for the training sessions although only at a modest 6 hours a week at the moment!

Hopefully I am going to use this blog to keep track of my thoughts and feelings as I pass through the coming months!

Will appreciate any comments and advice!
