Hi guys!! Just checking in for a catch up although have been lurking!!
Hope you are all well, sounds like training is going good! Hope you get that 3rd leg covered for Outlaw.
I have 2 weeks until my 1st HIM (non branded event in Fort William).... trying to stay positive as that will help me get through. The swim is my weakest so if I get out alive I should be ok!!!
A few more hard sessions this week as I am off work and then I will be less intense next week (much less) although will be up in FW for the week before and will be going up Ben Nevis via the Carn Mor Dearg arete rather than the tourist path.... No other major plans other than bits and bobs of swim/bike/run before the race.
Then after the race we are off to Skye to hike the Skye Trail for 1 week and wild camp for 6/7 nights. I am tired thinking of it all but sooooo excited too!!!
Today managed a run with some random hill reps thrown in... a swim of 1500m (pool) and a wee yoga class. Not too shabby. A good day planned tomorrow of a swim bike and run. Easy swim after a tough set today, tempo run and 2hr bike.
Have decided might go for Outlaw Half next year before full IM late in the season..... Never thought I'd say it
