65 planned for the weekend. That will be the last long ride before the Norwich 100 on the 27th.
OWS plans scuppered for tomorrow evening, boss has booked in a late meeting.
Good work SD
Good work SD, and great news on the front crawl... it's a painful process that's for sure!
Am I a freak? I can only swim crawl. Couldn't do breaststroke to save myself.
at 6'3" and 20 stone doing triathlon.... errr yes you're a freak!
I can do both but not having swum much (competitively speaking) since school, which of course wasn't that long ago really, it's been a bit of journey back on front crawl. My BS was always my strongest stroke and pretty much still is.
I was happy with the 1200m in 27 mins today though, there's hope yet! unfortunately there's no pool sides in OW which is the bit which constantly worries me

Quite ironic i became a diving instructor.
Thats the good thing about diving, it helps you sink if your a bad swimmer
Gastank, when I did my first (and only, to date) OW event I found the lack of pool sides to be a good thing. You get into a rhythm and just keep going, rather than having the interruption of turning evey 25m.
One day I will master tumble turns and the whole pool swim will be fluid and unbroken.
Right after I dream the winning euromillions numbers, and Sean Bean agrees to elope with me.
2 hour bike tomorrow, and 1 hour run on Sunday.
Might move the run to Monday because I HAVE to go to the pub a Sat evening to watch the Heinikan cup final and its my friends last weekend that he will be allowed out (he's getting married next weekend) and I hate running hungover
Hubby away all weekend so I am sole childminder, which means turbo-ing Sat & Sun nights
popping my tri cherry tomorrow morning!!
Bon chance Rafi!
the swimmy thing is optional isn't it?
well, I have been practising falling off the bike in T1
You'll walk it Raf. Not literally
Good luck Raf
Well as you know I popped my tri cherry this morning - and it has to be said tri nutters are certainly friendlier than runners!
Completely ballsed the swim up - started OK, but kicked in the face after about 50m, stopped to regain my composure and couldn't find my rhythm again - so ended up bs the rest of the way. Most disapponting!! Don't know what went wrong, but need to work on it big time!!
But after swim exit, things were great - must have overtaken half a dozen people in T1. I just kept it simple, had race belt on under wetsuit, so just put helmet, shades and shoes on and legged it! Overtook loads on bike (great feeling overtaking bikes worth 5 times mine) - avg 22.1mph ovwe 22km, wasn't over taken once!! T2 easy, straight out for a 21min 5k
So that's the first one out the way, onto the next........
