A small window has opened up between foreign trips and the family vacation. So it is back on the bike and into the pool. I'd say I'm on target so far. No point overdoing it. And I worked on the sleep deprivation, endurance and functioning whilst eating/drinking unusual fare while I was away. The half ironman isn't the only part of the Birthday Challenge - let's not forget that.

I'm going to Amsterdam tomorrow until Friday for a conference. I'll do my best to do something constructive training wise and not eat/drink too much. But I hear temptations are rife. Never been before - it looks a great city, and I'm staying in the heart of it at a fancy hotel. At the very least I need to visit a coffee shop.

The official half iron training schedule has been printed out. It's a 20 week program which I joined halfway through week 20 (they count down), and it is ready for modification and excuses already. Like they say ride an easy 60 mins. I am doing 10 mins at a time on the trainer in the garage to get my butt used to the very sharp saddle. I survived 49 mins of it at Danskin a couple years back so I know it can be done. But right now I am sore. Ran 2 miles to test the ankle out. So far so good.
