I guess if logistics allowed and you could do it from home, it would be 5-6h out of your weekend; very manageable if you start 6am. But would you want to do it, could you be ar5ed?

I think that 'record' you refer to was doing official IM70.3 events (tbc), which becomes a time, cost & logistical faff. Again, wondering where IC gets his dough from to fund all this, if he's training & looking after all his kids full time. Racing one WTC event isn't cheap.

Confused Confused Confused

Hard to decide if was just advertising stunt knowing she'd fail, or if she was just completely naive to size of challenge and assumed she was very fit and exercised daily at hard intensity therefore could cruise along day after day if she took it easy. Not sure which is worse either being a charlatan or just stupid.

She's just another self-obsessed snowflake who probably spends more time pouting in front of her camera than actually exercising enough to do one IM let alone two.

I doubt she even looked up the very basics of how much energy it takes, and how she would feed herself between events to simply replace the energy consumed.

A lightweight, vacuous waste of electrons on the web IMO.
