I would be several hours behind you. And that's just after the swim leg! Oh god. It's a terrible idea... but I kind of want to.
My alternative plan is to move to Iceland and become Iceland's top triathlete. I feel that this could be possible as in the week I've been here I've seen only 2 cyclists and I've not seen anyone else running. Which makes me #fastestgirliniceland. Right?
I've been thinking about IM UK too, because I have clearly lost my mind.
If there hasn't been any float throwing or deliberate underwater kicks then I don't count it as a swim.
You should do another TT, Luci! (says someone who's never done one)
I've had a similar experience - was told to move out of the medium lane as I was "too fast". I am very definitely a medium swimmer, they were in the wrong lane and should have been in the slow lane. But men pretty much always refuse to go in the slow lane...
I'd love to say I chose not to be rude. But that would be a lie.
Cambridge Aldi was full of cyclists this morning. I got some "winter" gloves, which will probably do for autumn (#forevercold), lights and some nodder led reflective arm bands, which will keep my mum happy and unfortunately will be quite useful over winter as this city appears devoid of street lighting.
Hat and gloves too, do you think?
I'm going to look a right tit.
What?! I'm looking forward to it!! Though we're only in Reykjavik for a couple of days at the end, we'll be driving around the north west before that.
This reminds me, I'm going to Iceland at the weekend and want to do lots of running. It's so hard to know what to pack for it - I'm still in vest and short shorts mode.
Still in transition though, mine was at the end of the run!
Reminds me, I saw someone with a camping stool in transition at my last race. Just a stool, mind, not a proper camping chair.
