Good write up Tim. I told my wife and daughter that Bolton was one of the hottest places in the UK

Good work Will. Started week 9 today with an hours coached swim session.

Felt knackered after a day of interviewing & dead legs from yesterday. Good swim session has cured those.

Runningfeet - Blackminster half is a nice event - I've done it quite a few times.  Flat, although a few undulations - the ones I remember are a bit of a drag at about 5 miles and then a particularly nasty incline right at the end of the 6 mile loopy-loop which always catches me out, and you get to do it twice.  Also it's over distance - you go straight past the last marker and think you've finished but there's still 100m or so to go. The thing that always amazes me is how fast the leaders are going - the speed us mere mortals run means we're bound to be lapped usually midway through the first 6 mile loopy...you here them it coming up behind you and then they zoom past at some speed.  www.d2ride.co.uk  ZolaP - Good going at Kidderminster.  Did you see Wiggins and Froome apparently they were in the crowd.  Half way round we thought you would cave in but you looked full of beans in the home straight.  Coolio.  www.d2ride.co.uk

Glorious day here but very frosty overnight, so bike and run will be done this afternoon once the roads have warmed up.

Did a 5k time trial with running club last night, didn't get to do one at the end of last season so was not sure what to expect with all the low heart rate training that's been done this year to date. It was on a running track so perfect conditions, but broke the 20 mins so really chuffed. 18:43 - very suprised

Doing a DIY olympic distance tom with some of the RC should be fun.

Great time TB!

Good job TB!

Beautiful day here in the Thames Valley.  Managed a early pre work swim and then a 45 min jog along the river at lunch.  Sooooo wonderful to run under a blue sky with a warm(ish) Sun on the face.  Shame the weather is set to turn by the weekend.

NR - Yep to the foam roller being painful.  Stick with it though.  It's honestly worth it

Thank you all, I was very suprised, hope it just means that I'm getting generally fitter ready for the harder training to com before outlaw.

IronDonkey, yes beautiful day here too, hope its like it tomorrow, I think it may still be a little cold to get out the pool in a tri suit and do the planned 30miles, think i may get changed.

Great run Badger.

Brick for me this afternoon.  Just over an hour on the bike, and I managed several times to have a drink on the move , then a 30 min run.  Longer session planned for tomorrow, rest day Thursday, swim Friday, long bike Sat, long run Sun.

Nice running Badger

Ran back from work today dang me it's surprisingly warm today, had to stop and take my base layer off and roll my tights up .  Been out on my mtb just now, and hunted a copy of the new Tomb Raider game for Mr Frag, it'll help take his mind off the ManFlu he's suffering from

 

kettlebells later - ding ding!
