doing what i say i'm going to do wk1

it's too soon to use the 't' word but it's been a good week. 100m pedaled, a couple of short road runs, a lovely sunset trail run and an hours worth of swimming. what i need is five more of these then i can start operation ridiculous tri.

i feel slightly tempted but i won't.
im not a big fan of tri's but this one's different
go for it!
ps cracking shot of jane..is she doing it too??

trio said...

100miles commuting? That is good going! When I'm commuting a lot I have no chance of running and/or swimming as well. You are becomming a true triathlete!

kate said...

uc- i've never been tempted by triathlons but like you say this one is different...and have you seen how difficult it is to get an entry for the ben hill race ;) re:photo, thanks! lovely run last night, did you see the moon?! jane can't be tempted by this race but that's what she said about the hpm...

trio- ah, but your commute is more than double and then you still ride for fun ;) you are a machine!

trio said...

Kate my commute varies, so this last week it was often longer. Although still two days of 12miles each way. But on a big commute week I don't ride for fun as too tired.

Now that you are a triathlete I think we will call you the machine!

sbrt said...

Wow! You dont do things by halves. That is a truly ridiculous Tri.

Sorry to mention the T word but I think you may need to do more than 100 metres a week =)

You are utterly, gloriously bonkers. Go for it! Hope you can find time for the incredibly tedious swim training. 1900m in a sea loch is some going. I shall follow your progress with awed fascination.

Simon said...

Ridiculous, but in the most glorious way! Go for it!! If only I could swim and bike at anything above pootling level I'd almost be tempted myself...

Got a few mates doing the Hathersage Hilly Tri in July. Possible training bridge for ya? It's much easier obviously. I might enter the team event and do the running thingy bit...

Doing what you say you're going to..... sounds suspiciously like a training plan..... now I'm suspecting identity theft, this post has been written by an impostor.

kate said...

trio- ....i've not ridden off road since 'puffer...

sbrt- the way i think, is that if you do something shorter you have to be quicker-i am never going to be quick!

hayfella- why thank you :) yeh, the whole swimming thing. erm, it's going to be more about survival for. still learning how to front crawl :-\ !

simon- that's the problem with you speedy folks, always worrying about being slow ;) i had seen that race and am tempted. but the idiot in me would like the ben tri to be my first ever triathlon...yeh, i should probably try (hahaha) the other tri first ;)

jumbly- contact jane if i start talking about heart rates and brick sessions ;)

kate said...

Emma said...

kate said...
