I still have 2 weeks of solid training.

Self doubt is creeping in.

One week to go, and I'm okay. I have covered the total distance twice now and just done 10km at a bit quicker pace than I needed to be at to hit two hours. 10km seems easy now. Will do another 10km Thursday and then race.

Just finished my ‘peak’ training week. My tri is in 3 week.

I have just done 13 hours of swimming, biking and running this week.

Just done my quickest 6 miles in years.

Started riding again today. Felt good. I did feel a bit dizzy due to the meds I'm on so I'll make sure to avoid any roads.

Came in a sniff under two hours for the half marathon, so that is a decent enough morning's work. The two hour pacemakers started 3 mins in front of me. I caught them at the line. So I spent the race chasing a man with a flag on his back.

Hopefully Jem is doing well, today, too.

There's a pan flat half marathon on my doorstep in September. It is £30. Half of me says "do it and go for 1 hour 50mins".

My daughter did the Hackney half last weekend in 1hr 43min. That’s your benchmark ;)

£30 isn't too bad. Club races were about £22-25, last time I looked. Great Run significantly more (because they like money). There's a good race finder at https://www.fetcheveryone.com/race.php, just in case you want to check for a cheaper one in the area.

Also, Mali, not that this should affect our pride or anything, but she's (from memory) a high jumper. So, you know - not in her usual sport and all that.

To be fair to both of you, she is categorically not middle aged either.

Yesterday I finished Staffordshire 70.3 Ironman

As you can see I am so chuffed. It is the one I failed to finish by 1 second last year.

I was not happy with the swim as it was 6 mins slower than I wanted. I was in for a great time, till I got kicked in the face.

We wanted to take Darwin on a steam train yesterday, but it wasn’t running as some plonkers were doing an Ironman competition around Chasewater and the surrounding area. Russell said ‘bloody Kovacs’, and lo and behold, it WAS you.

Grumble grumble.

:DD

WELL DONE X X
