The triathlon race season starts around Easter so I am supposed to be in the middle of a 'rigorous winter training regime' ...
It's not quite 'rigorous' yet. I am training for the Reading Half Marathon in March and want a sub 1:35 time. It's an achievable goal - at least that is what I kept telling myself as I ran 9 miles this morning in the freezing cold.
Swim training with TVT has restarted after the Christmas break. The big news is I have upgraded my swimming trunks and ordered a new nose clip (yes I am serious). Apparently the new trunks should make me more streamlined and they have 'endurance+' embroided onto them (very manly). Better still the fabric is 20x more resistant to chlorine ... although I am not really sure how that will help.
Bike training is my biggest concern - it has been way too cold to sit on the silver rocket. Thankfully I do get to cycle to work & church meetings but it is just not the same as a ride with the boys.
I have booked into the Windsor Olympic Distance Triathlon in June with a view to dispel the memory of last year's terrible swim. I also plan to do a few sprint distance races as well, its going to be another tri-tastic year!
