Ironman in 8 weeks - advice needed

I think a few sacrifices to the gods of triathlon are in order!

Then maybe a red carbon wetsuit, a red carbon bike and a red carbon pair of running shoes should do it.

I've also heard of a really good Lond Distance Tri course that someone on one of these sites runs.....

    Sub 10? No problem! Just get your WAT to threaten to curtail any more overseas triathlons unless you put in the necessary training. All that expense and you're below 25 hours a week training???

    If you needed to go Sub 9 then that's tougher. You're going to need more motivation to push yourself. Think that if you get there, you'll get a whole carbon fiber / titanium kitchen and bedroom set for the underseas volcano lair as a reward.

    And maybe go for a run this afternoon.

    carbon running shoes shound great! Where do I get some of those?
    Maybe I could just run in my bike shoes without cleats.....

    conehead - have u done Florida before? Is it good? I saw some clips of it on Youtube, the swim start looks AWESOME!

    Good luck with the prep!

    C'mon Conehead - we are all reposing great faith in you. You have the Hawaii 70.3 behind you, the Black Bomber, nuff said.

    Go on give them a good stuffing - good luck
  • I can't run, I can't swim but I can bike ( not very fast though) and your asking me.....

    Just tear it up mate... as you say - stay classy.
