Getting braced...

This week I received my training plan for RAB 2010... Well, actually I got 3, for varying levels of ability. You were given a brief questionnaire to determine which training level you were;

  • Enthusiast - What's a bicycle?
  • Club - Has ridden a bike on occasion

Seasons End

as a New Years resolution I set myself the challenge of doing a triathlon this year... I ended up doing 5, and it's probably kept me sane as I've been continually pestered with leg injuries.

More mid-week Racing

Last night was my third sprint triathlon of the year. For this one we decided to try a different organisational company called Human Race, who are doing a monthly series sponsored by 220 Triathlon Magazine. They have a good reputation (and also organise the big Windsor Triathlon).

Stupid Hobbies

After having survived a couple of sprint triathlons in the last couple of months I decided (with a bit of encouragement) to have a go at an olymic distance triathlon. In terms of time and distance it's a big step-up from Sprint distance to Olympic...well, double everything in fact. The distances involved would be a 1.5km swim, a 40km bike ride, and a 10k run.

Halfway House

Nearly halfway through the year, which is more than a little scary. Time to see how the New Year Resolutions are shaping up...

1) Regain running fitness after injury.

a Change of Tempo

The Reading Half is finally out of the way. By my standards it didn't go too well, with a finishing time of 1 hour and 33 goal was always to get round without an injury however, and that was aciheved, so we'll call it a draw and move on.
