I was just wondering if anyone is taking part in the UK ironMan this year in Bolton.
This will be my first IM and I cant wait! I completed my first 100mile cycle last weekend and so am feeling cautious optimism about the main event.

Done a few in my time - a new challenge everytime :)
As Graeme says, get the bike right and you'll be great.
Good luck......and enjoy
I haven't but I'm thinking about it as a potential good cross training challenge next year... RichL - when you say get the bike right do you mean the bike setup i.e. handlbars/tri-bike or the bike ride? I'm also pondering purchasing a road bike to go with my single speed and wondering if a tri-bike is essential kit or a road bike with those lean on bars is ok.
ah bike nutrition I see... questions re. bike still valid though!

2. Pace on bike is also key - don't start off too fast and leave your running legs on the bike. Have hit the wall massively during the bike and it wasn't a pleasant experience!
.....but as always.....make sure you enjoy - it's a great feeling when you see the finishing chute
Yeah i will be competing on Sunday, really looking forward to it. Weather forecast is good !
How did you get on Runner88.?
