Hello I am a former swimmer (about 15 years ago) turned Triathlete. Got into Triathlon in spring 08, as part of a get fit campaign trained hard all winter. Instantly got the bug & now starting to enter events.

its that time again.

So I have had a few weeks off from training & taken in some good R&R. Had time to reflect on my races & look at where improvements can be made ready for next season.
On assessment my Swim is not too shabby, but will need to continue on improving stamina & speed. Its my cylcing & running that really needs the attention, running at 5km was about 20-22min dependant on course so need to focus on getting that down & maintaining for a longer distance. Cycling is an area where i hope to notice the biggest difference. I must be commited to getting in some serious milage in over the winter. I have access to a turbo trainer so there really is no excuse.

So it is today that i embark on training for races next year. My plan is to step up from sprint distance to standard / Olympic distance, With my 'A' race being the Mazda London Triathlon in August 2010. Over the course of the winter & next spring it is all about getting used to those distances & really putting in the hard effort, after all you only get out what you put in right!.

October - November is purely aimed at looking at technique across the three disciplines. Whcih equals nice easy training to break me back into things.

From November through to spring is where i plan to build the distance & base fittness, I know that this is going to be hard, especially the early morning sessions during the bleak winter....brrrrrr.

Hopefully by spring i will have a good level of fittness & will be able to start concentrating on speed over the required distances. I plan to enter a duathlon & a 10km race at this point.

Feel free to follow my progress & if anyone has any training suggestions or race recommendations, please comment.

Kind regards
