Congrats smoke free! That's awesome!

I should go swimming again this week, haven't done anything, only biking and a bit of running. 7 days to the triathlon; it would be a good idea to get 2 more swims in before the race.

What's your triathlon Tipsku?

I've swam (and cycled) more than usual this year due to being injured for running. I've enjoyed the swimming so much, we've booked a Swim Trek holiday next year!

@smoke free It's half an Olympic distance triathlon in Ravensburg, Germany on Saturday. 750m swim, 24 km (15 miles) bike, 5 km run.

It's a hilly course, I expect about 325m of elevation gain. I've trained a lot on the bike in recent weeks because I have a niggly Achilles tendon so my running has been limited. I can run a couple of miles but I don't want to risk anything so I will postpone any longer runs until it feels normal again. I hope your injury heals soon, too.

The swim is in a lake. I think I should survive it but it won't be pretty nor fast. About a fortnight ago, I swam 1000m in a lake in about 24:30 minutes. That's about 5 minutes slower than what I used to do when I was younger.

Got something to say?
