…I’m not sure virtuous is the right term. Smug is probably better. You find me back at my desk with porridge and coffee in hand after finally getting back in the pool after what must be something like 4 months off.
There is something about getting up at 6-6.30am on a Monday morning and going to the pool that is truly awesome, psychologically scaring and physically painful, but awesome. It’s like climbing up to the 10m dive platform and launching yourself off into the week…as long as nothing goes wrong you’re off to a flying start!
This is training week -2…i.e. 2 weeks before I start training for Celtman proper. Time to see what is and isn’t working after the Highland Warrior back in September…looks like everything is working okay but not a strong, flexible or fast as I’d like, but hey hoe…that’s what you get for sitting on your backside for 4 months.
Anyway we are off and rolling…wish me luck.
