Who's joining me?
Hi Ellie, if you have only limited time I would concentrate on the bike. The swim you can muddle through and can always walk the run. The bike course is a bit lumpy, so get as many hilly rides in as you can. No need to panic you have months of summer riding before the Vit. I live in east anglia which is flat as a pancake so I did go up and ride the course a few times before race day. This helped my confidence a lot. Don't worry though, it's not the Alps just a bit more undulating than we have around here.
Just in case its useful, there's a group doing open water swiming sessions actually at the location of the Vitruvian swim (Whitwell harbour on Rutland water) on Wednesday nights from May. http://inspire2tri.com/programmes/open-water-swimming-2/open-water-swimming-events-in-rutland-water for more details. I'll be down there, although the Vitruvian is out of my league this year!
Well hopefully the snow has all buggered off now and we can get on with our training.
Did some useful bike miles over the weekend and was frozen solid most of the time though I can't run at the moment as I have a calf injury - but this is improving and I hope to be running again by next week.
How is everyone else's training going?
Drop me a line if you do come up, EllieO - we're 2 miles away and can provide a base if you want! You should be able to PM me through the forum.
