So it would appear that despite being a CrossFit 'star' with nearly 600k Instagram followers, you can't go from no Ironman finishes to 50 IMs in 50 days Laughing

They went nuts obviously. But end result was that she managed one questionable finish, plus two more 'legit' finishes over six days, then pulled the plug.

I'm tempted to start a thread titled "I'm thinking of doing 50IM's in 50 days..any thoughts"

That is a whole world of stupid. I've got a couple of friends / clubmates who have gone down the whole Instagram motivational fitness blog thing. I guess it's a new fitness industry. I'll stick to posting pictures of my cat.

You'd have thought they'd at least do some homework and read up on the deca-nutters before drawing such a silly line in the sand.

Lmao

Ok, I'm just catching up on all this, but there's a lot of reference to the Iron Cowboy (admittedly never heard of him). His website is so bombastic I wanted to throw up - he does get a lot of stick also on ST.

But one specific point which confuses me:

Quote:
They also said -

“You can’t do 22 half ironman 70.3 races in 30 weeks!”

YES I CAN, and I DID!! (Guinness World Record)


Am I missing something? It's a world record to do 22 HIM in 30 weeks? Do they have to be 'official' HIM or something?

Even as a lazy, slow triathlete I'm pretty sure I could achieve this if I set my mind to it (and clearly most people on here could do it) - that's only one each weekend with a few weeks off every now and again...?!

What am I missing Confused

TBF it irritated the hell out of me ( I know, I know, I clearly don't have much else to worry about) that some boarderline personality disorder 'fitness star' declares that she'll do 50 IMs in 50 days.
