I'm a memeber of the Scottish Triathlon Federation! Mainly as I'm racing abroad this year, so the insurance comes in handy!

I'm a member - it reduces the entry fee for races and offers insurance (though never used it).  The cost isn't cheap so I suppose as WW says, it depends on how often you race.  I'm not a member of a running club so pay the extra unaffiliated fee for running races.

Well, swim didn't quite go to plan this morning. I am absolutely buggered after managing a whole hour of unbroken sleep last night as firstborn is ill.  However, I did manage 2375m in 1:05.
Tomorrow's another day.

Rest day for me


Just a trip to the physio .. for a bit work on my knee

I went ahead and registered for the 2 day, 3 race event in May.  Sprint on Saturday morning, Olympic later in the morning, and half iron on Sunday.  You only live once right?  $152 total for the 3 race bundle so can't beat the price.

Yanky that looks like a damn fine weekend if you ask me!


Nice swimming ladies 

I went and did another run technique class which seems to be finally making sense and I can feel a change in my running, hopefully for the better !!

5 hrs work to go and then off for a few days

although I shouldn't really be running, I have been doing short run/walks on the treadmill a couple of times a week, and concentrating on having a more mid/forefoot strike and it feels ok actually. I have only been doing a little so it isn't killing my calves either

spinning class floowed by masters swim is lined up for this morning

Is one of those trendy pose/chi running things Melds ?

Sinuses full of goo this morning . Hoping its after effects of the long swim yesterday and not mr frag's manflu

Supposed to be long run and short ride today, am leaving it a while for my head to drain first...

G'day all


Just a wet and wintery 7mile run for me 

Taking the dog to her physio session this afternoon

I discovered today that if i remove my bike from the turbo trainer it can be used as a form of transportation. not sure it will catch on though.

nice 48 miles, warmer and drier than was forcast and found a nice stretch of closed road where I could practice using the tri bars. too scared to use them at the moment when theres traffic about.

oh, and at this mornings weigh in just 1 kg to go and I will no longer be a fatman.

Good work running dog
