Hi guys, iam 45 yrs young, not new to sports but after a sever accident piled on the weight, fast forward 10yrs and at 18.5 stone decided to start running.

2 yrs later after running related injuries started triathlon training as a way to avoid injuries with non-impact sports, and a dream was remembered.

Done 3 so far 2 olympic and a GoTri.

Now into 2nd year of Tri's doing this years AAH series, Slateman done in 4.08.00 with Sandman just a few weeks away.

Iam a lonewolf with my training as i find it difficult to make club meets(work a 5 set rota) so always looking for like minded ppl

Morning! Been lurking a while have you Wink Hopefully we can provide you with an experience somewhere between Slowtwitch and the Ironman Journey FB group! I too do pretty much all my training alone; still haven't got that Lonewolf tattoo yet like in the film Blades of Glory. Young family and the ability to train at work means it's the most efficient way.

I hope we can be of some help here Smile

Hello & welcome! Smile I do the majority of my training on my own to ensure it doesn't impact on family life too much, and as yourself I struggle to be able to be around for club meets. I had a go at the Slateman this year, loved it, even that awful run! Came home in a pretty pleasing 3hr18m59s

TBH while I find I have plenty of motivation to go out and do the training on my own, my biggest difficulty is to push myself into the hurtbox when solo

i had major issues on the run tbh lost over 30mins on the quarry section, but i did it with a smile all the same.

Hello!

Fairly new on here as well and also new to Triathlon.

All my training is done on my own for now, I just seem to prefer it that way.

Since joining, I've found this site a great source of knowledge. Everyone's pretty switched on.

I would like to give it a go but as I'm so damn far away (Lowestoft!) I had to tie the Slateman in with a family holiday. Not sure I will be able to sell that one again to the wife for a while! Very Happy

Oh go on then, I'll join. With my mighty 3 hours per week training regime. Smile

Well, right now it's closer to zero but half X is on the radar so need to get moving a bit again.
