BBT, I'm doing the Blaenafon route on Sunday for the first time.  I've driven it, even my car found it hard.  Still seriously considering mountain bike, but will probably man up and take the road bike.

2100m swim in an hour tonight with the Tri club.  Feeling good!  If a little weary...

Oh Sue that is very very bad luck indeed .... How frustrating
It does however sound a lovely place for a race

Bad luck Sue.....just Lanza to look forward to now!!

First open water of the year last night - went to do 1500m just try out the new (secondhand) wettie, but felt good once I'd warmed up, so did 3200m in the end. Not extremely fast, but felt strong all the way round so pleased with that.

Thanks for your support, although IronCat wins the prize for being closest to what I went through.  Back training for Lanza. but my energy levels are very low - alot can happen in 3 weeks though, starting this week.

Yep, I swim at Tri20 and it was a scortching 16 degrees last night - well, they what they said. Wasn't too bad - a little chilly on the last lap, wish i'd gone for 2 hats though - my brain was getting cold!!

Cat and Bedders swims there occasionally, as does No Way Out - he's the other guy with a Pirate swim cap.

Lovely off-road run in the sun, didn't see a soul.  Top notch.

Hoping to start OW swimming next week too.

Swimming in polar conditions can never be good for anything unless you are a seal

I swam in a nice pool at an ambient temperature for an hour and 5 mins

I ran and hopped and jumped and did funny drills for 2 hours

Now I am at work until 0700 ....   living the dream
