first steps into the world of tri this year, signed up for athy(sprint), planning on doing my local ones as well, castleconnell(sprint) and Boru/Killaloe (olympic).
At the same time i'm finishing an MBA this year, thesis gets handed in in oct, and i was looking for some way to celebrate. stumbled on this
olympic /half ironman in Lanzarote in early november. a week away would be nice, and the idea of doing a warm weather tri appeals to me.
so, question, anyone done it? or know anyone that has? am i biting off more than i can chew
secondly. am i nuts thinking that given teh time i could target the HIM, with a view to just finishing, not thinking about times or places or anything like that? The swim would be okay, know i can get to that distance easily enough with some training. cycling i'm doing an average of 100k long cycles at the weekends already, averaging 28 to 30km/hr, plus turbo sessions and shorter spins during the week, that'll be picking up now again with the long evenings
running, i had been targeting the half marathon in Limerick in june, but was out of running for two moths with an injured foot, and just back, gone from 15km long runs at the weekend to struggling with 7/8,but building back up slowly. given it's 7 months away, am i mad to think that i could be ready for the HIM?
