Back yesterday from training in Spain. Had a really good time. Got some good bike training in with some good hill work over the Pyrenees. Overall it wasn’t as warm as we were hoping it would be and we got drenched whilst out on the bikes a few times. Did have a couple of nice days though and on one of them cycled over to France. Really beautiful, with lovely quiet roads. Made a nice change from cycling in the UK.

I was able to do some running but ITB still not great. Getting a bit worried now as I’m supposed to be doing some duathlon races in March and April.

Whilst out running 3 days before the Dewsbury 10k I picked up an injury to my ITB. Gutted! Meant missing Dewsbury which I was really looking forward to in the hope of getting a pb. Hopefully a 2 week rest from running will help. I’ll just have to do extra cycling and swimming sessions. Off to Spain for a 10 day training holiday in 2 weeks so really hope to be okay by then.
