It’s here! I’ve started these threads primarily as therapy/support for anyone subjecting themself to the Full or Half distance training plans, or otherwise building themselves up to iron distance races!
Is your first time or last (!)? Planning problems, nutrition questions, injuries, podium places, travel, bike mechanics and of course shopping! No, really whatever it is, whenever your race is or the plan is TR wholly or otherwise share your journey
Ironman or any other brand doesn’t matter, anything long course; half to full distance or similar/longer. Short course thread is elsewhere.
This will be my ninth season and as always hopefully my most successful - I hope it will be for you too.
The 2021 thread2900 posts, 37,000 views 2021 was successful for lots of us as pools reopened and racing resumed
2020 thread for reference, contains lots of good discussion, over 3500 posts, the challenges of training in an uncertain world, and the 2019 thread with all the hard work and success stories with a decent medal count at both Full and Half distances!
There will be a monthly roll call where we all post the previous months training, successes and failures. Post your username, and if you have a race signed up, the name and month it takes place. Optionally I’d also be interested in what plan you’re following, a half or full TR plan , part TR part something else, or something else entirely.
