Statrted doing triathlons this year myself, I cant believe the numbers out doing them, becoming a very big sport in Ireland. Have you got the wet suit yet mayo4sam??  I find i cant swim in the pool at all any more since I got it, too boring. Awful easy to swim in the wet suit too,the legs hardly have to kick at all to keep balance with the lift

Started the triathlon training this year myself, Im sticking to the sprint events (750m Swim, 20k Cycle, 5k Run) as my swimming is still quite weak. Have to say Im really really enjoying it, although the training is fairly time consuming. But as squinted eye says, the numbers out doing it is unbelievable.

Anyway, doing my first one this weekend in Mulloughmore, so hopefully it goes well. Following that, I've registered for Ballina in July and Lough Key in September. Would be just delighted to complete 3 triathlons this year.

mannix i suppose it depends on a lot of things but i'm 30 & reasonably fit, i'd should be doing a 20 min 5k. Got the wetsuit alright, wiggle.co.uk is great. Am doing ballina as well steve, i've a few loads of turf that need bringing home if u have the time after, its on good & early. Did kilcock as the 1st, only learned how to swim since christmas so was kaking myself but it was grand, 500m. Then athy, 750m but in the river, easier & quicker. Doing lough ree as well, meant to be good for beginners. U should look out for gaelforce also, defo worth doing

good man mayo4sam, might see you in ballina. wont make any promises bout the turf though. got my wet suit from wiggle.co.uk also, brilliant website. went for the orca s2 suit, it said it was good for buoyancy so perfect for me ;) Like yourself i only took up the swimming around christmas so it's been a steep learning curve.

 Gaelforce - is that the kayaking and mountain climbing business?? sounds like a challenge alright.

I'm a regular long distance runner. The problem is, that it has slowed me down from running at speed. Has anyone any idea how to pick up the anti as regards speed or do they not go hand in hand. I really need it for  Hurling. I was thinking cutting out so many miles? Is this the way to go..

25 mins for 5k is hardly pathetic is it?


Not sure, anyone answer this ?
