    My Triathlon went well as I am sure you all knew it would. ( you always have more faith in me than I have in myself)

    The swim was slow but felt calm, the cycle course was brilliant, with steep ups and fast downs it was really enjoyable and then run was fine. So all in all a lovely morning. Our club used it as the club championships and I was a little disappointed that there were prizes for the  3 fastest ladies and  3 fastest men only , which we already pretty much knew who would get what, as you would  in a club where you compete and train together . I think it would be nice next year to have some other prizes maybe for the most improved or even some sillier prizes. 

    Now I have a very hilly half marathon in my sights and need to get some good running/hill training in. At the moment we have great weather and I have enjoyed some lovely longer runs . I have really missed the long runs over the summer where I have been concentrating on Tri's .
