29/05/12 - Bike / Run (Time Trial, Glynn Neath, Swansea)
This is was the first time trial event I've done with the club and I really enjoyed it. I was one of the slowest males, so I was luck enough to be set of 10th after the very quick ladies in front of me. Even though I don't have a TT bike, I tried to get in the best position possible and give my legs a great workout, down on the aero bars and go flat out in the same gear for the full 23 minutes.
Well that was the idea, I tested my bike before I left and I had only gone and got a flat from the weekends ride, as I rushed to get the club session, I left all my tools at home, this included spare inner tubes too, so my night didn't start the best. I had no idea how to change the rear tire so I suppose it was a blessing in disguise that I did it at a club session. I was helped to change the tyre and when I came to inflate the tyre I only went and snapped the valve off so I had to take everything off again and start again, so I was covered in dust and oil, and not ready to race. I also didn't get time to put on my Garmin for the stats so that will have to wait till next week.

02/06/12 - Free Ride, (New Forest, Southampton)
An early start to beat the bank holiday traffic, my legs felt great as I had 3 days off previous to this session, which I feel quite guilty about. That is 2 swims and a run that I've missed this week. I do feel guilty but I do now that it will effect me on race day, but fingers crossed not to much.
I remember this ride from the previous time, and I really enjoyed it, I started to run out of energy on the previous session with 5 miles to go so I'm keen to get that issue sorted out before race day, and I'm happy to say in this session I had it sorted, I was fuelled up and feeling great all the 50 miles.
