I am attempting my first IM this year and don't have a bike quite yet (borrowed friends for other tris). Should I go with a triathlon bike or get a road bike with aero bars? I've heard both but am still unsure of what to go with.
I'm doing my first Ironman SA . !!!! Doing my first HI practice on 21 Jan. in Port-Elizabeth and so nervous!! Have never swim in the sea- just use to swimming pool and dam on farm-haha.
If I'm not mistaken, I think cell phones are not allowed during an IM. However, I use my iphone with Wahoo Fitness bike accessories. Will I get banned or DQ'd?
Good luck to those doing the Houston marathon this weekend!
@Catherine, I am not doing the race, but now is a great time to swim or work on your weakest sport , P90X and weight training. Coz is a long way out. You could also do a June or 26 week out HIM. Then come back down to start your IM training. This far out I would recommend having a plan for each week to help keep you motivated!
Anybody doing Cozumel November 2012?? What are you doing for a training right now?
it went to a time trial start duathlon.
@ryan- thanks man... appreciate the info! 70 is not bad at all! hope it is not cancelled again this year... what happens when they cancel the swim?? is the entire race cancelled and rescheduled??
@ Brent: thanks for that recap! Congratulations on a great race, and thanks for including the details on what went right and wrong, and how you got through it!
