Morning Makr, that sounds great. I run very early in the morning to avoid heat, traffic etc. It is so peaceful. The other morning I found a pushbike. Reported it to the police and they say if it isn't claimed in 28 days I get to keep it!

Ohh sorry, Mark!

Morning!! so tonight is my first trip to the gym, I'll complete 5k weather I have to run, walk, or crawl ha ha, so Di if you get to keep the bike your two thirds of your way to a triathlon!! 

My sister is an open water swimmer and coach and she's going to be giving me some pointers on the swimming side of things, that's something else I'm looking forward to once I improve my fitness level.  Mt father in law is a distance runner so no doubt I'll be  spending more time with him when I start running out door's....

Hi Mark, good luck in the gym tonight. It's a long time since I've ridden a bike and my swimming was always a bit like a dead fish! Have a good day. Let us know how it goes tonight.

Well done, Mark. That sounds really good for the first time in however long. Make sure you give your body time to recover tomorrow. Have a good weekend. My next run is on Sunday. My niece is training for a half marathon, so I go along and do 10k while she is running silly distances!
