I think I can do this

It’s been a busy few days of triathlon training and wedding planning.

Friday – ran a 5K PB of 25:45

Saturday – visited a load of potential wedding venues along the M4 Corridor and then went out for a meal in T Bones in the evening with Kathryn’s parents.

Sunday – visited a few more venues on the way back to Cardiff through the Brecon Beacons. Then ran a 10K at 55 minutes flat including a 24:59 5K for kilometers 1 to 6

Monday – rest day. Had to help Carlo with his computer.

Tuesday – 700m swim including a 400m PB of 11mins in the morning; finally got out on the bike proper in the evening, did 18K in 45 mins with a my supposed flat section of it into a headwind – then transitioned to the treadmill and ran a 10:06 2K.

I’m actually beginning to feel like a triathlete – assuming that all triathletes struggle to sit down after a bike ride!
