Thought I'd do this a bit different this year. Give a bit of a summary of how each days training went, if theres anything worth mentioning that is.
Training hours this week - 6hrs 4mins
Pool Swim 1 hour - 1.27 mile
Cancelled the club coached endurance session due to feeling rank with man flu, also hadn't been swimming for over 2 weeks so wanted to check i could still float & swim. So hit the UEA for a more relaxed hour. First time Ive been on a Monday & at 7.30pm found it quieter than I'd ever seen it which was a bonus. Had to do the first 10 lengths in the shallow section due to a club session still going. Went a bit quick at first & thought i was going into cardiac arrest after 100m, but managed to calm it down and have a relatively relaxed session.

Attended this on Friday night. Great to meet up with fellow triathletes again, chat about events during 2012 & what we are planning for 2013.
Went through the formal club stuff then did the awards.
|Age groupers who represented the country. Including our World Champion, Iain Dawson|
Once the awards were done it was on to socialising, Pizza, Ice cream & Mobots
|Paul the official Mobot king|
|To our relief, Stan didn't turn up in his speedos|
Let the feasting begin
Cycle maintenance course started today. Four week course which will helpfully move me up from useless status to OK at looking after my bike status.
Today's lesson was pretty basic, tyres, punctures and wheels, but did learn some new skills.
How to make your wheel true, replacing spokes & removing the rear cassette was particularly useful. Also made me realise buying a decent cycle maintenance stand to work on my bike is going to be a worthwhile investment.
Next week brakes and cables - http://www.bicyclelinks.org.uk/course_maintenance_intro.shtml
Think that's the lot for this week. Training increases to just over 7 hours i think.
