Open Water Swimming Season
by justal Apr 10th 2012
Just had a nice open air triathlon training day.
It started with my first open water swim of the year and a chance to try out my Forerunner 910XT in open water swim mode. It coped well, although the swim smoothing algorithm is probably just a little too aggressive.
This was followed by a sunny hill reps session on the bike and chance to try out my new (hopefully quicker in transitions) Northwave bike shoes.

Time to chill and polish off some Easter Chocolate now.
My next race
Although I'd love to, I won't have time to blog here too often, but I do keep a regular blog all about my Triathlon (and other) exploits here:
I'm a born again Triathlete, having done a few races in my teens, I stopped doing any sort of training for over 20 years and then started again in 2011 when I was 40. I had fun doing them and didn't do too badly, so I'm once again on the way to being able to call myself a 'Triathlete'.
The blog above contains plenty of training tips, notes on any particularly exciting training sessions or those of note and my race schedules and reports. It also contains lots of other things too, all about living a 'Simple Life of Luxury' here in West Wales where we spend our time swimming, cycling, running, MTBig, windsurfing, surfing, gardening, beekeeping, watching the sky at night and many many other things - I hope you enjoy it.
