Hi GTN, love the shows but am looking for some advice. I've been lucky enough to get a place in the London Marathon this year, I last did it in 2011. However now 8 years later I have changed. I was unlucky enough to have 7 operations where I was injured at work & now have a metal knee, although I can run both the surgeon & physio have told me not too, as I will wear out the resin between the plates & I only get one more knee. These last about 15yrs & I was 48 when I had it, so need to preserve it. I plan to walk VLM & am looking for advice with trainers, I'm 19 stone & when I go for a 10+ mile walk my heels are killing me. Any help you can give would be appreciated, I a a nutral runner/walker & will be about 16stone when I do it as I zwift & swim…. Ta

I did Ironman Italy in September which is also a very flat and fast course. I gotta new PB as did a lot of other people. Unfortunately though I fear this is not because it’s so flat but rather there were huge packs on the bike and people accidentally or on purpose took advantage of drafting. More interesting is to know which course is fastest for the top 50 or so where I guess there is less drafting.

Alistair Brownlee just won Ironman Western Australia in 7.45.20. Surely that qualifies it as a fast course. In fact, a lot of first time Aussie Ironman candidates choose this race for this reason…flat course, beautiful location.

Iceman!???? That make's Ironman look like child's play. I hope Anders stays safe and I wish him success!!!!!

Please do a Top 5 hardest Ironman branded race, for those of us who want a harder race, where it might be easier to qualify for Kona, because others are out off.

One of the extreme irons around the world, without question. Up in the mountains, against nature and the iron distance. Nothing better!
