Training Reboot

Training Reboot

It’s been a long 3 weeks without training.  My back is finally cooperating and I don’t have any more bronchitis.  Allergies are still kind of bad right now especially with all the flowers having opened up and the trees spreading pollen all over the place....
Over Two Weeks Off

Over Two Weeks Off

You might have noticed that I have been strangely silent about my triathlon training recently.  I think I may have mentioned in my last Training Log post that I’ve suffered a minor back injury at the hands of a misguided individual.  As a result I’ve had...
