12 Weeks to London…Week 3 (8th-14th July)

After a weekend of pushing it as hard as I could at the TriAthlone National Sprint Championships I had one day of rest to look forward to (Sunday 7th) before back at it again. Although we give out a hell of a lot about the crappy weather in Ireland, I wasn’t overly thrilled to hear of a heatwave hitting Ireland for this week! Massive amounts of sunshine doesn’t go overly well with my complexion, shall we say!! With two triathlons on the books for the weekend, Mon-Fri were not going to be all out. In the end, I sprained my ankle at the Two Provinces triathlon, which meant I had to pull out of Carrick-on-Suir triathlon and substitued in a nice gently 80min cycle just to get out in the sun 🙂
