Exercise: Thursday - Exercise bike 30, Friday – Swim and Weights…and rest all weekend…Today Boxing
I am starting to realise what a significant investment in equipment a triathlon is (simple Simon me is just understanding that you need good equipment for all three legs..)
As per the “Ultimate Training guide” (a mag for Tri People...) I need
Sunscreen - Check I am bald man!
A wetsuit - I have a pair of faded speedo’s
Spare Swim Cap - You need two? I do not even have one
Race Singlet - Does a wife beater count?
Goggles - Check
Bright Towel- If everyone has a bright towel then how does your towel stand out? I am going for a beige towel
Baby Oil - Apparently this is for getting in and out of your wetsuit (and no I do not have any)
Vaseline - I am starting to think I might be reading the wrong kind of list
Bike - Maybe by the end of this week?
Bike - Shoes What do you think?
Bike - Pump I have a foot pump does that count?
Helmet - Check (long story but I do have a helmet..)
Baby Powder - No chance
Running Shoes - I have an old pair which are in desperate need of an upgrade
Sunglasses - Do Aviator sunnys count?
Hat - Check
Spare Safety Pins - I am starting to wonder if this is a tri or a new born child? I mean Baby powder? Safety Pins? Whats next nappies?
Toilet Paper - Now I am scared
