30k on an old mountain bike  in hilly area is a great ride.....

I would say just keep doing what you're doing.  Motivation doesn't seem to be an issue, as rather than just give up at the first sign of an injury, you took the initiative and found something else to do instead.

I agree with Seren that once you start going to the club then you will become even more motivated.

Chester tri got me swimming too - fantastic efforts by them !

You will soon get better.... 

Sadly I haven't been going much this winter, as running has been this years focus, and the baths have been closed for renovation...

go along and try, you will soon fit in.. Manley Mere opened last Tuesday as well

You're in luck. Very good swim and run sections at Chester. Well coached and inclusive.... even the track session is friendly! The bike section has traditionally been a bit crap though... the Club Captain used to lead one ride from Blue Moon that's not especially popular because it's a bit hardcore. Unfortunately, he got seriously wiped out by a car just recently, so I'm not sure what the provision is. Other bike ride leaders weren't so common, but that might have changed recently.

Suggestion... Deva Tri in two weeks and they're crying out for volunteers because it's such a big event this year. Throw your hat into that ring and it'll break the ice nicely for you. I think I'm on "carparks" at 05:00

The club ride is still happening, Dom is on the mend, we voted in a new Club Captain earlier in the year.

check out the Chester Tri face book page or website

Will you be down there for the big race, Dave? Muffin's doing it, subject to ridding herself of flu, throat infection, sciatica, ITB strain, strained periformis, strained deltoid and... erm... no I think that's it.

I can't I'm in London that weekend, someone arranged tickets for the Bowie exhibition at the V&A as well as going up The Shard without consulting my diary !

and meeting Sprog 4's boyfriends parents. Eek


im sure Muffin will have a great time

Hi there, mitvated newbie. I've done one year in tri, and find that the whole aura is far more inclusive and fun loving than the running scene. A year ago I was virtually a non-swimmer and now? I'm still going to be last, but at least I'll find the bike. Certainly, call the Deva organisers and offer to marshall, they can never have too many.

I'm going to be dressed in yellow and stood on a street corner on Sunday myself.
