    I'm told that the trick is to make sure your Bike Fit is done by someone who understands Triathlon. If you have your bike fit done from a purely cycling point of view you'll burn out your running muscles, while if you have a Triathlon Fit you can favour one set of muscles more for the cycling and "save" the rest of your legs for the running.


    Or, buy a car.

    I've just completed my last swim, and just like that the training portion of my triathlon journey is over!

    I think my goal of sub 90 minutes is a little optimistic, I'm certainly not holding myself to it. Close to that I'll be happy.
    But heck, I'll be happy to just make it through the finish line.

    My start time is 08:32, the friend I mentioned earlier who is in training for his first 70.3 starts 26 minutes after me. I've challenged him to catch me, and expect him to at some point. His level of training is off the charts, to give you an idea, he did the Leeds half marathon a short time ago, he lives in Doncaster and the mode of transport he chose to get to the half was his push bike. Mentalist.

    I'll post a bit of a report here once It's all over and done with.

    Survived!

    I was slow, but really enjoyed it.

    Could have gone harder in the swim.
    Got held up in traffic on the bike
    Run was challenging, fell run without a doubt

    My fast mate was 2 minutes quicker than me in both transitions, he caught me on the run. He came 5th overall, so I'm not too embarrassed by that

    1hr 47m total time. So nowhere near my 90m aim, next time!

    Well done, that's what it's about!

    Now you can sign up to all kinds of sophisticated training strategies to beat 90 mins next year.

    Well done beefcake. Just don't get hooked or you'll be dragging the family halfway round the planet for 'events' holidays.
    Simon no longer owes me anything, Dave does though.
    Floyd probably owes me at least twenty with the interest rolling up...

    Entered another fairly local one, slightly longer swim and this time in open water. Flat part of Yorkshire so less hills which is a relief.

    1st of September, just a few more weeks to get used to swimming in lakes then.
