So I have been feeling a little guilty - I have not really been doing much since Oliver - the locked ankle was a little more serious with some minor ligament strain so I did not run for 3 weeks or so, I was also told no swimming as well so that left the bike. A good friend of mine bought a new training bike and wanted to reduce inventory so I am the proud owner of my first mountain bike - actually it is a hybrid and well since I have no gear I am using it as a commuter bike. I have started riding to work - I live on the side of a mountain so the ride to work it pretty good 15km pretty much down hill the ride home - yep 15km pretty much uphill. I try to ride 3 times a week but still feel like I am slacking.
3 weeks ago my new half marathon clinic started - usually this is a small clinic - 40 tops - not this one - 60+ people! I think it must be due to being a featured clinic leader in the lastest Running Room magazine. Either way that means I started running again and since I want to do a fall full marathon I have been doing add-ons on Sunday.
Swimming has been - well pretty much non-existant - I have been to the local pool twice and used my pool twice when I am particularly lazy - but since it is only 15 metres it is not ideal.
Why am I listing all this because it has dawned on me that I have a sprint tri in 2 weeks.... yeesh this should be interesting to say the least. Ah well I guess it will be for participation. I should probably try and do at least one brick before....
