Six months to go

Started writing this last weekend but never got round to finishing it. Sorry.

Well in 182 days I'll be running the Virgin Active London Triathlon. Starting to get a little nervous to be honest but it's mainly because I still can't run and thus can't train during the week. Rang some gyms this week so I can try to train while in London. The prices were slightly prohibitive (ranging from £60-90) for a split centre membership. If I get desperate I'll have to join.

I did two bike rides this weekend. The ride on Saturday was very short but thats because I had a lot of things to do.

The one on Sunday was 22km long and I completed it in under an hour. Which I was really pleased with. The route can be seen below.

I was genuinely impressed with this ride. My legs were jelly when I finished though. As you can tell from above I have now joined Endomondo so that people can track my progress. I will also be including rides in my blog. It really is a clever website.  The only other items of note were the fact I have ordered a new stem for my bike to help my get in a more aero position following something I saw on Youtube. I've also ordered a Road ID in case I have an accident.

Please remember you can still sponsor me at Justgiving.

Thanks for reading
