Just a nice sometimes not consistently updated view of my running cycling and (fingers crossed) swimming

Fixie-fun

Fun is probably not the best choice of word....

first day properly using a fixed gear bike. built it up from other parts, got the most important bit (the wheel) from a mate then the frame from my brother, the front wheel was my replaced road bike front wheel and had an old brake lever from a sale at some point. anyway spent most of the time cycling it forgetting that it was a fixed gear, therefore nearly dislocated my knee every time that i tried to freewheel but it was awesome.

Definitely my new run around bike, and it's light enough to use as a good training bike.

anyway must work now.

Oh and swimming the other day, knocked off a quick 100 lengths...i wish, it was painful to see everyone who is good at swimming in the fast lane next to me just breezing by. and i clubbed my heel on the wall tumble-turning, still not quite pro at that.
