So I’ve been training a fair bit recently. Quite well structured too, but I’ve found that I’m just not spending enough time at home with Deb, Rach and Syd for my liking.
So….I’ve got a new plan. This involves loads of riding and loads of running, but a lot of it in the early morning or on the turbo trainer. It does mean though that I turn into even more of a hermit but at least I’ve a plan I can stick to that’s flexible enough to accommodate those whacky random things that sometimes just happen.
The whole focus at work seems to be moving towards a triathlon event in summer next year. Now, I’ve seen many people over the years boast how they’re going to beat so and so in such and such a race, but I’ve learned that the best policy is one of dignified restraint. You can talk a good race all day long, but that’s time I’d rather be thinking about my next training ride/run or what food I need to be eating right now.
There’s a lot of pretenders in this world who’ll rather try to push the psychological to the limits even if you’re just not listening.
Quietly (or as quiet as I can be when publishing this on the Internet), I’m pretty confident. I’ll do the bike leg (cos I reckon I’m pretty good), Rob will do the run (cos he’s a pretty handy half marathoner) and Wendy – cos she’s done a bit of swimming and her confidence will build.
More updates on that one over the next 8 months.
