Racing in pirate colours for first time on Sunday.  It's only a 10k, but the only way is up, right?

Tim, I always run better off the bike, you are nicely warmed up and the cadence is 'there' following the bike
(its all relative and I still run like a lumbering thing)

I run quicker coming off the bike and in training I have to concentrate on keeping it together and not going out too hard and fast.

Returned to proper running last night with a few 1500m intervals.

Just completed my longest swim. 4km / 160 lengths in 85 mins.

I feel like that all the time Spoons (hungry, that is, not pleased with my swimming!).  Probably a tapeworm.

1hr 05 on the bike.  Jeeeeeeeeeez it's cold out there, my arse is like a block of ice.  Warm hands and feet tho' - odd.
Not the best training week, a couple of sessions missed due to work/kids/hubby/life in general.  Still, will manage my long bike tomorrow and long run on Sat.

Goodness it's cold today.  Applying the chamois cream brought a shudder & a grimace.

Morning All,

A lot less chilly then yesterday. A great session in the pool last night, the usual 300-400m of warm drills, floats etc... and then 20 x 75m off a diminishing rest recovery. Really pushed hard and enjoyed it.

well done spoons and holgs on the swimming. I am no longer the slowest in my lane at tri club now - I know that cos I keep catching people up and having to hang around a bit.  just need to sort out my legs and kick and I will be getting there
