Ironman 2017 - PE

Was not going to do another but now changing my mind. Still training as much as ever so may as well have some goals.

Sure hope the bike course remains as per 2016. The course was much more conducive for us heavier ous and also far more enjoyable I thought. Looking forward to the crowds of PE making my misery a little less :)

I'm giving this a miss in 2017... Decided to do the Addo 100 miler in March, 2 oceans in April and the main event of the year Expedition Africa in May.

 

Too many 'must do' events on the calendar all so close together!

I seldom do brick sessions. now an again I might run to gym, do a spin session and run home and that's it... too damn lazy to run after cycling :)

I am about 30% in, if bonus comes through strong and the stars align by end of jan I will commit.

At this stage the usual training is happening though...
