The good news is that I have made a bit of progress. Training has started and I was starting to feel pretty good about it. Then the 2nd Half of the Summer term started, work commitments meant my 5am runs and swims weren't sustainable. Training took a dive but as the end of the term struck I have had a cracking weekend with a short ride on Saturday and then Sunday saw a 3km swim followed by a 10km run. A bit of a success as I am not suffering today!
Hoping to get out Tuesday morning for a run and to the lake in the evening.
Recommend the Tri20 Swim Centre, very friendly and it seems to be well organised.
Oh yes, sponsorship! I have decided to raise money for Helen and Douglas House, a charity my family and I have been involved in raising money for sometime. I have not done much recently but this is a challenge that will push me hard. Finding time to train, to build up the distance needed and to complete the race itself.
Please sponsor me to help raise money for an extremely worthy cause!
