Ooh, Me ears are burning!
Hi all, how's it going? I've kept a low profile since picking up a calf injury after London which took an age to heal. I even avoided lurking on this thread as I was in deep sulk mode. I'm all better now with a whole month of run training under my belt, so the Outlaw should be a breeze.
The positives I can take are that my cycling is a lot stronger now with a handful of comfortable 100+ rides on my TT bike which is encouraging. Plus the speed is there too as I average over 20mph for this in zone 2 heart rate, which apparently is where its at with this Iron distance malarkey.
I also managed my first 25 mile Time Trial in 58mins and 42 secs which I think is decent for a debut.
My swimming has also improved as I no longer fear the distance having swam it a few times now, I won't be breaking any records but I'd be more than happy with 75 to 77 mins for the 2.4 miles.
The running is what it is, so we'll just have to see if I can hang on.
I'd better have a read back.
