Good morning all, sorry its late, been so busy!
Since last time i wrote this things have been going really well with training – completed a 1/2 marathon which was supposed to be a training run but i got carried away with the event and pushed a bit to hard, but still great experience in the rain and wind of Llanelli! Yesterday i entered the Mumbles Duathlon which i really enjoyed, i didn’t go all out and took my time and just enjoyed it and used it as experience with transition etc! I felt really strong on the bike averaging around 15.5 miles per hour so i was quite happy with that and i have a 2 hour run planned this afternoon.
I’ve been upping the running lately for the marathon next month, which i am doing the 20 miler in llanelli next weekend so will be good experience as the furthest I’ve ran so far is 14.5 miles – which felt a long away around these hills.
