Afternoon

Out on the bike this morning and got soaked!

Gobi - not racing but just keep a record of my sessions and good to see an improvement in time for roughly the same amount of effort.

Evening

Just over 10 miles this morning on the wet and muddy trails around Farnham. Was quicker than last w/end so maybe all the track sessions and form work are making a difference. 

I think I'll be cycling tomorrow.

I'm very much open to constructive criticism which is what was being offered, so no problem there.

Apparently I need to be more upright, shoulders more relaxed and arms should be mimicking the action of bell ringing!

With the swimming I was told that I need to concentrate on getting my left arm higher out of the water and maintaining a flatter profile, which I'd sort of worked out for myself. Swam just over 3K today and with the adjustments noticed a smoother travel through the water and quicker lap time so the advice worked.

Is there a correct/incorrect way of cycling? I guess there must be. Over to you Gobi!!

Morning

Rest day yesterday but out on the bike today.

Interesting couple of Tri Club sessions; firstly on the track on Monday I was told I need to change my running technique and then on Tuesday at the pool I was told I need to change my swimming technique!

Guess I'm probably doing the cycling all wrong as well!!

But that's the good thing about going to club sessions, getting coaching and having someone point out stuff that you're doing wrong and suggesting drills that will rectify it. 

So, plenty to work on!!

Morning

Track session last night with the tri club. 400s + 800s. Out for some hill reps later and swim tonight.

Took Rusty for a walk at Frensham yesterday when, from around the corner, appeared a procession of zombies. Poor dog didn't know what to make of them and looked very concerned when a women with bloody gashes on her face came over and started stroking his head!

Filming finishes tomorrow and 'Snow White and the Huntsman 2' arrives in January.

Another rainy start to the day. No SOC run but off to the track tonight for 400s/800s.

Maths - it's called Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. There are some more photos on Flickr Zombies

Evening

9 miles today - muddy trail run with some decent hills thrown in. NW 1 drift of pigs (had to look up the collective noun!), 1 heron, 4 horses, ZW (zombie watch) 4 - and, for the non-believers, here's the proof (photo taken yesterday)
