    Re: Helvellyn Triathlon

    Next step on the way done today. My first mile in the pool since I was about 10. I'm going to suffer tomorrow though. I don't think I've ever got cramp in my shins before! Still can't do all crawl, keep having to drop back into breast stroke to get my breath back. Enjoying a new challenge though.

    I'm jealous.

    Did my furthest today, I've been stuck in a rut of 2 x 20 lengths (can you have ruts when swimming?), but today I managed 1 x 40 lengths and 1 x 10 lengths.

    Still a long way off a mile (64 lengths), and my little toe was hurting . Moving in the right direction though....(along and not down, for a start....)

    You're doing better than someone in the pool today. They got fished out with the long pole. The lifeguards were most excited!

    I still can't get enough air in. Are snorkels allowed in triathlons? I think I need one the diameter of a drainpipe. I'm too used to running up hills where lungfulls of fresh air aren't in short supply.
