Dog Tired

Dog Tired!!! Two hour, 6km swim session yesterday morning....phew it was tough, I was bloomin' aching at the end. Gez, our swim coach, keeps you motivated though, so you daren't quit. The guy could convince me that a three hour session would be a good idea, even when my arms and shoulders are screaming NO!
Did a really cool fast run session in the afternoon, I love being on holiday from work. I have so much time to do stuff I love. I've been putting the run miles in over the last two months, so I'm hoping to reap the benefit with some quick run times in 2009.
Anyway Merry Christmas to everyone out there, wishing you all a great New Year.

This time of year it's hard to keep focus, food and drink tend to take centre stage and the weather is horrible to train in!

This is me coming out of the water at Bala 2008, it was the last race of the season - it was fun. I didn't really have any run legs on the day, but with a hard winters training, hopefully I should be sharper for 2009............
Bala was my last "race" of the season, although I have done a couple of races for fun since. A 1hr criterium race in Prestatyn - I hadn't been on my bike for 2 weeks and had the legs ripped off me, it was a buzz! I then did a 5km open water swim race in Turkey, there were some pretty fast guys there, I know, I saw there feet briefly at the start! Three years ago I couldn't swim 25m so I can't complain!
Anyway back to feels good!
