4th January

Run    Distance - 2.5miles/4Km     Time - 34:33mins

My first training session of the new season on my route to The London Triathlon in August. I have decided to go for the Olympic distance this year and that this will be my final year of triathlon.
The battery on my Polar watch has run out so I am without it for now. I am working to Mike Pigg's training plan and it revolves around a HR monitor. So I am a bit stuffed until I get the watch back.
I was meant to be doing a test so I have postponed that and instead I did a run mixed with a walk
Feels good to be back in training.
