Right back to it today with a 1hr swim, bike tonight- Did a bit over the break fitting in some turbo work, a few swims and a 50m and 70m bike. I must work harder on the bike, they really hurt.

I gained 5lbs over the holidays. Oh good God.

Lardy Donkey seems more appropriate.

5lbs is easy to gain and a bugger to lose !

Time to read 'Racing Weight' again I think

I managed a few runs and a couple of MTBs over the hols, only put on a couple of pounds.  Time for an hour on the turbo.

Just weighed myself for the first time in a few months & back well over 14st.

I dropped over 2st last year, target pre Ironman this year is sub 13st.

Was a lovely evening last night, was going to head out the door in just my tri shorts (and jacket) but after getting kitted up and ready, about to head out the door I found out that my rear light had packed up  not having great luck with lights, front light had a problem with it last month.

Managed to go for a 8 mile run instead.

Then was going to go swimming, turned up to the pool and its shut  grr.

Nothing like a missed session due to a dodgy light. Good that you converted it to a good run though, well done.

I think you and TB are ones I need to keep an eye on this year.

Swim trial to join NEWTS next Tuesday, 400m in 12 minutes, so tried it twice this evening ... 10 mins and 11 mins.  Chuffed with that.

You'll enjoy NEWTS. They have cracking sessions at the NISV.

Nice brick session last night 45mins on turbo then 32 min run all HR zone 2, 8mm run guess thats okay, legs felt okay. I got a 10k off road race on sunday that was cancelled in Dec due to the flooding. I'm going to use it as a trining run i think and cycle there and back to get my long ride in.
