Next Series of Races and Season Schedule

Now that I have finished that final ten day block of training which had three key run speed workouts I feel much more prepared and ready for the next WCS events. I had done a couple of runs trying to keep up to one of the best marathoners in the world (who happens to live at the end of my street :) ) John Brown which was challenging but great for my speed and confidence. I now feel like I have the extra gear I need to put down a great 10k off the bike. My cycling has finally started to click after switching from Blue Triad TT bike to my Blue RC8 road and then to a Triad that I made in to a road bike which rocks! It took some position tweeking but I have got it organzied now and I feel strong. Lastly the swim will hopefully come together this week as I start to unload my legs into this weekends race.
