In 6 days I will be joining 1299 other wannabe Outlaws in Nottingham as we start the Iron distance triathlon (2.4mile swim, 112 mile bike ride and 26.2mile marathon). I am quite nervous to be honest. Although I have done quite a bit of training with a heavy bike focus my swimming is weak and I have not gone over 2km. My wetsuit barely fits after getting fat not fit. I have ridden 105 miles but didn’t fancy running a marathon on completion. I have only run 16 miles in total since running the London Marathon in April. In short it looks bleak. My plan to get some free speed involved getting some new wheels, some tri bars and an aero helmet. Will it arrive on time? Who knows? I will wait and hope.
I am determined to finish and will post my game plan which is being formulated and changed.
I am going to give it all for Odyssey Cancer charity. Please support me and help me get through what will be an emotional day. https://www.justgiving.com/Oliver-Nokes
