My triathlon training has totally sucked so far this year, what with being away a lot and having a stupid cough for ages. Then just as I was beginning to get back into running I got a weird kneecap ache thing, probably through doing a 12-miler while out of shape. So still at my heaviest ever, around 72kg! Noone seems to believe me when I tell them, so there’s still a bit to go before I’m an official fatboy. The “pack-o-meter” is currently in the danger zone with readings around 4 rather than a healthy 6, any closer to 1 will represent a state of emergency… Beginning to get back into it now though – did manage my first gentle swim in ages in the hotel, and a quick run early with no knee ache at all which was encouraging.
Time for an early(ish) night then maybe up at 7am for the usual 80km with the Tritons but the forecast is cold and possibly wet so I may opt for a much-needed lie-in instead and then attempt to compensate via the CompuTrainer which I finally got up and running.
