My first wetsuit arrived yesterday! A Poor Classic from TriUk, is smells rubbery. I tried it on — took a while, but wasn’t as hard to get on as I was expecting — and frightened the kids. And my wife. It’s snug, as it should be, and I can’t wait to get out for a swim in it. Hoping for this weekend, but will have to see a) what’s happening elsewhere, and b) where my nearest OW swimming venue is. I now have ALL the kit for triathlons … and a bit late in the year, really, as the season’s almost done.
Still, I’ll get a few swims in.
Also, after a long break during which I only managed one 4 mile run (in France), I’ve run for the last two nights. Tuesday it was 6 miles along the canal towpath, swallowing flies and dodging dog shit. While it was very nice, I found it a hard run. Last night was 7 miles cross-country — through woods, through a farm, along the Usk Valley Walk, more fields, and lots of mud and hills — and I loved every minute of it. Felt great when I started, and even better when I got home. I’m back!
Bike ride on the schedule for today…
