friends to watch me sweat it out over the 20K cycle. Now all that's left is the race itself.James has set us the challenge to complete the relay in sub-1:30. After the amazing results from his Bupa Fitness Assessment earlier this week, he looks set
(over the course of about 6 months) to knock my 5K PB time down from around 24 minutes to 19:56!Admittedly, this time is not official. It was measured during one particular Thursday in April, at a 5K handicap race against the people at the Virgin London
in the water.I swim in two pools - one is a beautiful restored 1930s municipal pool. It's a slightly random 30.5m long (which makes doing the maths of how far I need to swim even harder!). The water is cool and clear and I usually get plenty of room to myself
in August (750m at the Hyde Park Triathlon Relay with the rest of Team TW, then 1500m at the Marlow Swim)- Two 10Ks in July- An autumn half-marathon (I am dithering between Bristol, Cardiff and Birmingham - advice appreciated!)- The epic Cyprus International
On the day that top British triathlete Helen Jenkins secured her London 2012 qualification slot with an inspiring win in the Dextro Energy Triathlon London, another team got ready to take on the Hyde Park course: The TW Relay Team.As the watch hands
poor man's John Wayne.Scroll forward to late spring 2011, when Team TW decided to take on the Hyde Park Triathlon. After working on the Triathlete's World website for a year, I knew that I could no longer blame cycling itself for my irrational hatred
and it was a pleasure to represent team TW along side the GE relay teams.
this into this fartlek session this week:(2 mins easy, 30 secs hard, 1 min 30 secs easy, 30 sec hard) x 10. Cool down (10 mins)…where the 'hard' is 6:26 min-mile pace. The second area is my posture. I'm an incredibly inefficient runner, which I think is largely down
and camaraderie that go into Team Sky has made me more determined than ever that the TW Relay Team shall be a success. And I've got no excuse not to nail my nutrition strategy now I've got my hard-earned sweat test results.
The cycling gods via Genesis Bikes have answered my prayers. This week I took delivery of my new and frankly beautiful Genesis Equilibrium 10.The Equilibrum 10 was Genesis' top-of-the-range road bike in 2010. This great all-rounder proves steel
