Apologies for the break from blogging and commenting. The internet at home is bung, and I cannot access blogger at work, except standing up in the kitchen. Where I am now.

Some stuff:
- Swim: Good. Swam 10k last week, including a very relaxed 1k in about 20 mins. We've joined a training squad. First official session tonight, but last week's trial session was great and we've both got some good pointers.
- Bike: Getting there. New pedals. New fit. New helmet, so I look less like a toadstool. Went for a shortish flat ride with P yesterday and could feel the difference. Before long I'll be hitting Makara with the rest of them!
- Run: A bit of a mess. Sore knee, then sore heel, then sick. Now ready to ease myself back into it, before we head away for ten sweaty days in Thailand. Luckily, my run is fine, but I'd like to make it better than fine, to have a better chance of achieving my secret goal of a sub-2 half at Rotorua.

I have that same 'not so secret' target of Sub2 for the run of the Half Ironman ... glad to see you back blogging :)

Sounds like you are putting some good planning into the swim training. I'm sure it will pay dividends.

Whats the run course like for the event?

Kate said...

Mike- pity you'll be off the bike a good hour before me ;-)

Aaron- it's tough. Bits of offroad, and hilly...

Just seen your comment ... only if it's going to take you 5hrs to complete it :)
