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.

A new race for me this year, 14.7k race on chemins(tracks) around Tarbes. So after a few days off colour fighting off the bug my wife brought back from England I wasn't expecting very much. I set off as a training race with a target of 1-15 and finished 30secs outside with 2 hills, 1 for1k and the second 1.5k so a good day out.
The end of the first quarter of 2011 and time for some reflection. A big improvement on 2010 as follows.
Monthly totals: Jan to March 2010
Time 85 hours
Distance 798 k running and biking

2011
Time 95 hours
Distance 1353 k

So plenty more biking but also a very strong running quarter.

"If God invented marathons to stop people from doing anything more stupid then triathlons must have taken Him completely by surprise!"
