Training has begun

Mexico and Kentucky trips are done. Despite the fact that I still have a dodgy ankle I have started my training. Today I had a swimming lesson from Coach Andrew. I discoverd that I had been swimming a duff freestyle for 45 years. No wonder I have always preferred breaststroke. So now I have drills to do to make me more like a fish. But the bike will be worse. So the half ironman is actually going to be quite a challenge. I have set a time goal of around 7 hours - it sounds doable on paper but we'll see how the training goes.
