Whatcha! I'm Annie, a 30 something plodder. I reside (& sometimes run & do other triathlonny activities) in Barth. My greatest foe (apart from crisps 'n woine) is my cozy, comfy, warm, yet extreeeeemely Evil Sofa[TM]that insists on sucking me up, rather than letting me get to get out for a swim, cycle, or run.

In at the Deep End

I did it.

After, oooooh, about a year of deliberating..

I finally went along to the Triathlon club. Tonight.

I'm giving it a try for a few weeks, you see.

And tonight (Matthew) they were swimming. Yes sirree.

This should have been a Good Thing: as swimming's been m'best event at m'ploddy triathlons. Unfortunately all the ploddy swimmers were unavailable this evening; and only (mostly) young, lithe, bronzed and toned swimmers turned up for the speedy speed session.

Which consisted of:

A 500m warm up.

A 300m warm down.

And a lot of 50m relay sprinting in the middle.

Which was also OK - apart from the fact that we had to leap up out of the pool to start the next sprint. Ha! And could I lug m'mahoosive frame out of the pool? Could I heckers.

Stupid game.

Must. Practice. Lugging. Frame. Out. Of. Pool.

I have some super pool-shaped bruising and scratching down my arms to prove I was there, though. Nice.

1300m was glugged on my part overall. Quickly.

And a few brief, but friendly-enough chats were had.

Cycling & running round a race track tomorrow night.

Oh god.
