Outlaw Triathlon this coming Sunday, heading to Nottingham tomorrow. Think I’m ready, too late if not. Biggest concern is the weather, as I’m not keen on cycling in the rain (although had plenty of practice recently). Met Office forecast for Nottingham Race Course below:

Last time I did 11hrs 47min 05secs (splits below), so hoping to beat that whatever the weather throws at me. I’m hoping that coach Jason B (http://www.performancecoaching.me/
) continues to have a positive impact!
Using same bike as last time, but deciding to do a complete change in T1 and T2 into most comfortable bike and run kit, as hopefully being comfortable will help me flow better? Will post report next week…
…is a right pain in the arse. Probably caused by running hard (Edinburgh 1/2 Marathon with Sandy Cleland) on shoes that were past it, then not resting up. Last week was a big running week for me, about 60km, and I’m now hobbling about. Remedies include massaging with Tiger Balm (homeopathy I guess, but it smells great) and rolling a frozen Sigg bottle on the floor with knackered foot. Hope it’s OK by tomorrow, hill reps on the bike. Wikipedia Plantar fasciitis >>>
Thetford (Norfolk) is fabulous. Well, the forest is anyway. A morning run on trail and track, in the sun, lifts the spirits, but tires the legs – 19km! Amazed to hear Cuckoo calling near the range (juvenile bird? I thought all adults were back in Africa, or maybe just leaving) and glad to see and hear Woodlark in the clear-fell areas north of Mayday Farm [Yes, these are now in BirdTrack].
