Dear All, nothing to do with property but something I need help with this time. I have taken the rather silly step of signing up to do Ironman UK next year, for those that have never heard of Ironman, it is one of the hardest endurance challenges in the world and comprises of: 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike ride, followed by a 26.2 mile run (marathon). These are all done one after the other and with a cut off time of 17 hours to finish overall and individual cut off times for each leg, I hope yo finish in under 15 hours and I am trying to raise money for Scope at the same time, so if anyone would like to sponsor me please use the link below and thank you in advance.

http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/fundraiser-web/fundraiser/showFundraiserProfilePage.action?userUrl=NeilHollingsworth

The event takes place 20th July 2014 and is in Bolton so anyone in the area would like to come and shout some encouragement at me please come along however, if swear back at you I apologise now as I will be in severe pain :lol: :lol: :lol:

Thanks Sue, Rich and Carol much appreciated. I entered a Great Lancashire Swim race yesterday to practice the 2.4 mile swim and see how much work was required on my swimming. Was hoping for a 1hr 30 min finish and managed a 1 hr 20 min so happy with that, just need to get my head around the next bit 112 miles on the bike :D

Hi all, just an update on my Ironman UK Challenge and another big thank you to all who donated to my charity page, well it's all over and the official results are:

Swim - 2.4 miles with 2,000 swimmers setting off together, lots of punches, kicks etc... Time 1:15:54

Bike - 112 miles of hilly terrain, lots of crashes and some amazing support. Time 6:39:17 (of constant pedalling)

Small jog at the end of 26.2 miles - Again hilly and damn hot, but again awesome support. Time 4:39:36 (not bad considering my Manchester Marathon time last year was 4:25 on it's own)

Overall time - 12hrs 50mins 26sec

Div Rank #131

Gender Rank #539

Overall Pos #577

Remarkable what the human body can do, with good training and excellent support if I can do this it is not beyond the reach of anyone, I will put some photos on ASAP
