All books that we have, that have a dust wrapper or parts thereof, are covered with a clear, glossy, non adhesive library quality wrapper, or a backed sleeve if there is severe damage. I mention this at this stage, as I return to my experience with the spectators. Now, as you can imagine, I was thoroughly enjoying my moment of fame. I knew I was coming up to one of the largest spectator hotspots in this event as I could hear the noise for quite some time beforehand.
They were often at the top of hills, so I was not going very fast.

The crowds were cheering and clapping and it was thrilling. My heartfelt thanks go out to all those that lined the streets and villages of Carinthia on that day. The rattle of the cow bells, the music and words up up up up were fantastic and a true thrill for a rather tired mum from Medstead. I beat the hills and I hushed my internal saboteur. No punctures and no sore knees and shoulders, I came into transition 6 minutes off my target time.
Octavo single issue cover by Matt Fox pictorial wrappers. Fairbairn recognises the following objects and egos - the libidinal and the rejecting - any and all of which might be personified. It's been known, for example, that there's a "tyrannical inner object" that has a great deal to do with psychological depression, with harsh super ego attack. He describes how "primitive defenses" often emerge during childhood in order to preserve the self from psychotic anxieties of trauma. Once we begin to silence the saboteur, we soon discover that it never really has anything new to say, it tells the same old story over and over, rehashing it whenever and wherever, hoping we will be gullible enough to listen and ultimately remain steadfast in its grip.
I had just cycled km in 7. I walked into the transition tent and experienced a very dizzy spell. It felt like motion sickness, and I was off balance. My lack of nutrition could have been an explanation but I am very prone to travel sickness and dizzy spells, and this felt exactly like that. I sat down on that familiar bench and tried to compose myself.
I then went into autopilot and set to work on my transition routine. Methodically I worked through my kit change, strapped my knees, prepared my feet, and filled my belt with gels. Time was irrelevant in this transition. I was not well and panicking was not an option. I needed fresh air and to get moving again, so I took my first gel and walked out of transition, again twenty minutes later.
Now, one would like to think that after completing two of the three disciplines, you are two thirds of the way through the event. But this is an Ironman and again it is not meant to be easy. No, this is where the Ironman begins. Then I hear my name being announced telling me that I have 7 hours and 20 minutes to complete the marathon. I amuse myself at the thought now, but that seemed like plenty of time to run a marathon. I thought perhaps there is a chance that I might finish and get my medal. It is so important to dream and have hope; it is your kindred spirit when times are not so good.
I was under no illusions about my marathon; I knew I would not be able to run the whole way, due to my lapse in training and my dysfunctional lungs. But my dizzy spell subsided and I started running. I saw my brother well into his second lap, he looked on good form and that lifted my spirits and spurred me on. I had hoped to run the first 15km, but at the sight of many walkers and the return of my dizzy spells, I admit to walking much sooner.
It seemed to be a rather regular occurrence for many of the athletes, and gave me the confidence to follow suit. Fortunately, I passed Nick whilst running, so they were positive that all was relatively ok for me. Having only had one pee stop throughout the day, I was desperate to find a loo. I was taking on lots of water and coke and was obviously well hydrated.
There were many red cubicles on route and to save you from any unacceptable thoughts, I will say no more about this matter. The marathon was two laps and my first was very hard. The gels seemed to work for about 15 minutes, but the dizzy spells would return regularly. I became afraid that I would fall over or possibly faint during this time.
Fear is debilitating, I have lost the power to speak in presentations, and I have been frozen to the spot in a tennis match. I had thought that I might die when I got stuck in a couloir. I knew that my fear might end my dreams of becoming an Ironman.
I was lost in my mind for long periods of time beating myself up over my negative thoughts. Oh those damn voices. Many of you may well be saying, why put yourself through this. But it is for these reasons, to overcome my fear, to silence the voice of doubt and to succeed in my dream, to cross the finish line and hold that medal, would be my victory.
So I imagined that medal and that finish line as I had for a very long time. Sometimes we choose our battles, but sadly some battles choose us. I chose this battle, but I fought it in spirit alongside those that have not chosen theirs. The athletes and crowds diminished as I embarked on my second lap, I felt very alone and tired. A few km into the second lap I caught up with a woman that I had seen on the bike course, by this point I was desperate for company and social interaction. I asked her if I could walk with her for a while. Now this was a very good decision. She was very accommodating considering I was a complete stranger.
I asked her if she had any ideas on how to get to the finish. She announced she would be walking 4 miles an hour and would finish at 11pm. I liked this woman.
Hannah was her name. And I liked her plan. My voices were silent and I started to feel more positive; I seemed to be managing my dizzy spells with more confidence. We had 12 miles to go and I made a very good decision. I asked Hannah if she was happy for me to join her and walk the rest of the way. After all, speed was not of the essence as shown in my transition times.
For the first time that day, I genuinely believed that I could finish this event. We walked and we talked and we kept each other going. Well I like to think that I helped Hannah, but in truth it was Hannah who quashed my internal voices and talked me through my many dizzy spells. We got water for each other and Hannah picked up extra gels. We shared this special time.
