1) diet. I need to shift some weight, at least a couple of stone as I'm currently at least 16 stone. It would help if for a start I would get my arse onto some scales, and then repeat that regularly to keep track. Snacking and eating crap is a major issue to be resolved, as well as sorting the overall diet.
2) structure. My training needs some. I'll be moving back to Manchester in August and I'll be looking to join a tri club for swim sessions, as I've done a few with my current local club. My bike and run training needs structure though to help me improve, so I'll be looking into HR and power training. #1 will also help me improve
I've just joined Manchester Tri club and done my first swim session this morning Really friendly bunch. If your looking for someone in Manchester to plod around with then give me a shout - same to anyone else the more people I have to make excuses too the quicker they run out.
Stevie G. The clue is in the name trundling rather than racing is my thing. As long as I finish I don't massively care about the time at my end of things there's usually a fair bit of chat, at least I the first few miles.
Panda - shit does indeed happen. Put today in a box and lock it away. It's the tortoise that wins not the hare. When the going gets tough the tough get going. Mind over matter. It's just a case of left foot, right foot repeat. Remember there's always another hill! Etc etc.
Seriously I had a shocker last week too but then a cracker this week. Just be thankful that when you had a wobble (which will always happen) it was'nt on the big day. Now it's done you can cross it off the list.
