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.

on yer bike part 2
So today was the day we rode to work.
Rode my bike from my house to timbos at 04.30 this morning. He had the tandem out ready to burn...Set off full of promise, the sun was just coming up over the downs & the birds were singing. Then we hit our first obsticle, Foxhill, Wanborough. For those not familiar with it, its steep & long...totally killed us and this was right at the beginning. We decided to change routes a bit & instead of us going up Baydon Hill (Another monster) We cut down to Aldbourne & along to Hungerford. Which is where we picked up the A4 & headed onto newbury, fairly undulating roads all the way to Newbs & before you knew it we were at Thatcham. We stopped to grab some liquid & jelly Snakes..thanks M&S & seemed to really pick up the pace on the second half of the journey towards reading. Arrived at reading ahead of schedule in a time of 2.40mins including 2 stops. Which we were really happy with. Total Journey was 44miles. Although it was a very enjoyable ride I dont think its something we will do again anytime soon.

Got a pool session tomorrow eve, first one in a while. Might do the whole session on pull, depending on how the legs feel.

Cheers
