Pyrenees Crosstrainer
Pyrenees Crosstrainer
No shortage of training opportunities here in the Hautes Pyrenees. Now I have plenty of time to train I wonder how I competed and trained for all the triathlons from 1986 onwards with a job to do as well.
So I must focus on what works best and race as and when I can.

Balma 10k(Toulouse)

Crosstrainerby CrosstrainerMay 3rd 2011
The fastest 10k course in the Midi-Pyrenees, 735 finishers all looking for PB's. Woke up to great morning and set off for Toulouse. Seemed a bit windy when we arrived and getting hotter by the minute. I had tapered a little on an easy week's training but it went pear shaped when the gun went off and I just felt "off", no energy, tight stomach etc. Dug in to halfway but knew it wasn't "on" for a good time. The last 2.5k straight into the wind and the only bonus was that I kept the second half to within 23 seconds of the first 5k.
