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.
Got a decent tri team there mate. Could only choose ours from the Directors, so the third choice was tough – in the end we went with Tim.
Most likely Nick will do the swim as he as got plenty of previous. I will probably do the run – should be good for a sub 20 5K. Tim will be hunting you down (lol) on the bike. He has just had a Claude Butler road bike delivered.
We were going to have some “fun” with Tim’s bike, but alas he’d already put it in the car….
He def wouldn’t find that funny!!
What do you think of our team name “Die Tri-ing”
Let’s hope not!
