HOC Level C at Dymock - Blue 7.0kmRoutegadget
Standard HOC bramble-fest. Cruised round as after yesterday's efforts i wasn't sure how my leg would fare but was fine which was encouraging. Another week of strengthening and then i may get back into proper training.
Only one major error on 9 where i thought i was too far right and aimed off to the left but in fact i was on line and then wasted over 3 mins relocating
Swimming 1:01:48 
TTC Swim ~ 2875m
Need to invest in some flippers /paddles of my own as there weren't any my size to borrow today and its much harder without. Can definitely feel im improving

NGOC League at Knockalls - Blue 5.6kmRoutegadget
1st time i can honestly feel that my leg is much stronger than the last time i ran. HR Monitor didn't record so can't judge whether i was pushing myself more, it felt like i was. Was a bit tired after swimming so didn't have much energy for the hills. Really like this area and my nav was better that the last league event here.
Swimming 25:34 
1400m. so tired
Swimming 1:04:46 
Tewkesbury Tri Club (TTC) Swim ~ 2540m
Got wifi finally for my pad last night so i bit the bullet and joined the tri club. Seemed expensive but i think it will be worth it and massively improve my around training.
Session today was less arms focussed (thank god) as my arms still hurt from tuesday.
I think i've finally found a exercise that i can feel is working and improving my leg - weighted lunges
Swimming 34:08 
Got there early for once so did 1000 WU then 500m, 400m. Definitely can notice the difference in my stroke after only one session with the tri club
Swimming 1:00:00 
Went along to a Tewkesbury Triathlon Club Swim Session for the first time. Really enjoyed it. Today was very arms focused and included using paddles/floats/flippers. Should have just left my watch running as ended up missing a few sets so guessed the time. No doubt i'll be running with them soon but i think i will need a new bike before i go along to one of their rides/turbo sessions.
