So, our 4th challenge of the year is the Eton Dorney triathlon in May. As I mentioned in an earlier post, swimming is not my forte, but today I had a triathlon training session in the gym instead – a 20k bike ride, followed by 5 k run. It was tough work, and man my legs were jelly on the treadmill for the first 300m or so, but in the end I think it was a good effort (20k cycle in 40:55, and a 5k run in 26:18) – at least if I’m last out of the swim, I might be able to make up some time on dry land??!
And now for that important training element called recovery – I’ll be on the couch watching Super Six Nations Saturday for the rest of the day!
