Training for a shorter Tri

Great report Mrs L. I must admit that I tend to end up painting my toe nails the day before a race.

I went out for a bike ride this morning. Just over 24 miles on a flat route (less than 1000ft of climbing), with an amazing average of 13.8mph, it was just over 14 at one point but the last 3 miles seemed to be into a headwind and I was getting tired so it dropped down a bit.

Good luck all,
I can't make it up there to support this year, but I have unfinished business with Outlaw Half. 1 out of 3 attempts successful, next one I want to do really well and have more than 15 minutes left before final cut off.

Well done and great report DB.

I did a cycle ride this morning and covered 42 miles, with a decent average of 12.6 mph.

Now I just need a speedy recovery to cook Roast Beef dinner. although I am already cheating as doing new potatoes not roasties.

Mrs L, everyone thinks that they look awful in a trisuit. Pour a glass of wine and relax.

Always have one rest day a week. 
Sometimes you may need an extra rest day, the body rebuilds itself during recovery, rest can be as important as running.

Wow DB that is a yet another big change, hope you get something lined up OK. I agree with Pete you will need to change your name on here.

I had another day off work, seem to pick the good weather days, sure that will not last too long. So off out after the rush hour traffic died down I was off out and did a big loop of Surrey avoiding the large hills, so 48.5 miles later got home, ate loads and fell asleep for a little while.
Feeling a bit more confident as I did not get cramp or struggle on the ups too much, think it was down to selecting the correct gear as I started on the hills. Arms feel achy now though.

Recommendations sought

I would go for 2 piece kit, tri shorts and a separate top, either vest or cycle jersey which gives you many pockets.
