I have a 2 week family holiday booked before IM Wales - it was booked before the IM (my first).

I'm hoping to do a week of tapering and then a week of pretty much full relaxation to be fresh for the day. Seems like I'm less stressed about the event than others - or perhaps just naive!

IM Wales is on 10 September, and I am on Holiday from 14 August to 4 September, however, I am going on a camping / beach holiday, for 3 weeks I will be right next to the sea on the Bay of Roses in Spain, so fitting in a 4k sea swim most days shouldn't be an issue, an early morning run before it gets too hot (and before anyone gets up), and since I am going a week earlier than my wife, a couple of 180k rides should be on the cards.


Expect to see you on the podium then😀 At least a really good swim of 28k a week.

I didn't even do 28k per month for Deca Iron training... Rolling Eyes

Seems like a pretty good way to burn yourself out?

Good point, after my recent experience I will be really mindful not to burn myself out.
