So Sunday is the day I have been training for since forever, the longest triathlon I have ever done. OK, not an Iron man but half way there. All was going OK and then last Thursday I twisted my ankle when out running in the woods. It was not too bad, but it was bruised and swollen. Now a week later I can walk on it , swim and cycling seems fine. I have therefore had to adjust my plan for Sunday and I am not planning to do the run, but stop after the cycle.
On a more positive note,here is what I have achieved through my training.
I can swim front crawl comfortably
I have swum 1.94K in a competition
I have completely a sprint tri
I can now cycle with cleats
I can drink water while cycling and eat a gel.
I can cycle 44 miles and then go for a run
I can do a coached swim session for an hour and then go for a run or cycle.
My resting heart rate is lower.
I have learnt how to fix a puncture.
All good really and now on Sunday I can just enjoy the day and have fun. It will be a learning experience ready for next time.
