O.rangeCannon's pirate journey!!!!!!!
O.rangeCannon's pirate journey!!!!!!!

So I'm now a pirate, (ie normal people who are inspired by the runners world forumites doing IMs)..... This involves drinking beer, buying lots of yellow kit, oh, and a race or 2 a year to give it an objective.

I bumped into the pirates via the runners world magazine / forum, and they gave me the confidence to dare enter an IM.


2010 IMDE - flat, Outlaw - flat
2011 IM Regensburg 2011 - flat, IMWales - hilly, oh so windy
2012 Lanza - hilly and windy
2013 - IM Lanza - the return :-)

Recovering from knee issues, (too many rugby injuries) so now the plan is to swim OK, be an Uber Biker, and just let the run take care of itself. Oh Well

Base 3 - Lets up it!!!

After a rocky April, it was all systems go for May. Good weather also helped.

I linked up with my local tri club as well so long weekend rides became an early start for 90 mins, meet the tri club ride, then on my own for another 2 hrs to finish.

I am feeling good on the bike, but I recon my run is lagging behind a bit

More thoughts re coaching

I am swimming more than before - not hard though

I am finding training more fun, and don't like missing sessions - its definitely more motivating.
