Today was another good day, all elements of the triathlon completed without pain and in what is a consistent time (1,500m swim – 29 mins, 40km bike – 1hr 12mins, 10km run – 49mins 35secs).
Although it was a cautious run on the roads with the coldest night of the year so far and icy pavements. I started the run when the temperature was -2 degrees but finished it as it reached a whopping zero.
But an empty pool and company on the bike from someone who has the title of Head of Happiness at a pork scratchings company made for a pleasant triathlon.
Sights are firmly on Saturday and the next milestone – a quarter of the way to the total.
