NR - it was fantastic thanks! It was my first big ride - never done much over 50 mile before and then mainly on the flat, so was pleased to cope with the step up in distance and feel l could have run afterwards (I didn't obviously - we had lunch and got pissed!) But fantastic views, rain could have been worse, almost cycled to the snow line - about 30m short!

Race was well organised (apart from the start - although  with heavy rain forecast late morning I think many with a late start time came early to avoid bad weather). But def do it again!

Cycling in the snow in the middle of May.  I love Scotland.  Well done you.

Run done.  Just a wee one today. Was going to be 3 miles, but once I was out there I decided to do a bit of the route twice and make it 4 miles.

Tri suit no. 2 has arrived...................................and is a perfect fit 

I, on the other hand, am a perfect twit. Obviously didn't read the product info properly, because it has no padding. None.  Not even a waffer theen nod in the direction of a pad. Doesn't even bear thinking about .  

Have just ordered another one. Third time lucky.

Back from the pool. No drills today, just a very steady swim up and down. Did a mile in 45 mins.

So Fink # 1, very slow but really focused on technique and drills, main set was 12 x 100m and this element was complete in 27'01... Spinning later

Am very very tired

Where are pics of perfect tri suit?

Patience, Grasshopper 

Good work in the water.  I am having to learn not to pay attention to work rate and focus on technique.  It's hard when I'm so used to the "x lengths in x minutes" mindset

my running buddies are suggesting that I taper now, i.e. stop training... apparently i might need some energy for next week?
