Enought about the office and more about the training I say!
After getting my new road bike on the weekend I had arrange for it to be serviced, so I thought why not do a little brick session tonight. Well its a little cycle to the mechanics house (1 mile) so I gave it some welly up the hill so I could feel a burn in the legs, off I hopped at the garage ran my bike up the drive (like I was taught on Saturday) and said give me a call when its done... so I should have a nice new shiny bike by tomorrow evening.

So im happy with that and it will do me for this year and if im still as keen next year as I am now then perhaps I can upgrade next year.. if my wife will let me.
Back to the training, I dropped the bike and off I went for my run, I can join up with my normal route of 5 miles if I run down main road for 1 mile. I didn't feel much "jelly legs" when I got off the bike and it turned out to a pretty enjoyable run. It was pretty warm tonight but I still had the underarmour on, perhaps I shouldn't be wearing it now as summer is nearly here.
I'm now on a taper for race day on Sunday, swim tomorrow and light cycle Wednesday.. and we'll see what Thursday brings.
