Well I've just put some new tyres on my bike so that forced me into practising. 20 mins but at least I vaguely know what I'm doing now so going to practise once a week til I can do it in 5.

Just need some open water swimming and I'll feel a bit more confident all round

i went OW swimming today.first time this year.

I was moping around feeling bored this morning as OH had gone up to London.when i noticed on facebook that some NEWTS were going to swim in the sea in Barry and so i managed to tag along.the sea was cold but the sun was warm and I really enjoyed it and it was beautiful there.

getting ready for an early start to go and do a long bike tomorrow

8 mile cycle to Park run, park run, only 5 seconds of my best, 8 mile cycle back.

3.8K swim and now relaxing with a non alcoholic beer, my life rocks (not)

Snail I feel like a slacker for binning off my 4 mile run after my century ride now! Bugger it I've done too much running this week will do more harm then good..... I had a fun 105 miler last 25 miles avg speed was 24.3 mph according too garmin I was absolutely going for it was doing 27 mph on the flat! And did just under 40 through a 30 speed camera ... Needless too say heart rate zones went out the window the last hour hello z3/4

I did it 105 miles cycled. I got a tad lost at one point! 8hr 19 mins total time 7hrs 19 mins moving time. First 50 was great fun the second one was harder as had headwind for a lot of it. Good practice though and a confidence boost.

Seren I came from a mountain bike background and the bike is by my strongest discipline and I have no fear of downhills il happily hit 50+ coming down the hill in Marlborough... Which incidentally was where I saw the advertisement for the white horse challenge.... Also I do about 250 miles a week at the moment and about 350 in the summer. Oh and my average for the 105 miles was only 18.6 mph which isn't fantastic for me but I'm blaming the wind lol!

Well done Ali bear I bet you feel good now though.... Just grit your teeth in headwind and talk to yourself like I do!

Done 11:09 at my first IM last year going 10:30 this year! Massive swim and run improvements have been made over the winter... Bike still roughly the same... As a triathlete/ironman nut I'm still reasonably young so lots of time I'm the grand old age of 26
