I saw this video for an athlete planning to do seven Iron distance races next week. Thought people might be interested. I have my first Sprint Triathlon this Sunday, the same day as he starts his challenge. Hopefully I'll finish before he does Smile

The video was posted a couple of weeks ago so apologies if it has been mentioned here before but my search didn't find it.

It's where all the Tritalk nutters hang out and moan about how little training they're doing in preparation for the deca-ironman Wink

the logistics will not help. He has to get from one island to the next each day. Even with private car/boat/plane that would average 2 hrs per day

About 10yrs ago in Oz there was a guy called Andrew Stanfield that did (I think) 6 IMs in 7 days IIRC. He started was down the south coast of NSW and used the bike and run each day as a point to point strategy and ended up in Forster for IMOZ. He took the Saturday off and did the last race as a competitor in IMOZ. He raised a load of cash for charity.

Must've taken its toll though as I'm not sure he ever raced again, certainly disappeared from the radar anyway.
