Welcome to my 2013 Training BLOG! ~ January 2013

Happy New Year!

Welcome to my 2013 training BLOG, tracking as the title suggests this years training up's and down's for the Sports fundraising challenges I'll be taking on this year. At the time of writing this I haven't actually deicided what I'll be doing this year although I am mulling over some ideas... Watch this space!

A great start to the year on my birthday with the Abersoch RNLI New years dip for my adopted charity who came to my aid in 2007. A massive turnout of around 500people including spectators... A very very bracing start to the year! :-)

Started the year with a broken finger and ruptured tendon injury picked up in December last year which has curtailed the swimming and cycling. Along with a fair share of snow and ice there hasn't been much running either so I've been focussing on a new past time of Spin classes at the Gym which I've discovered are hard!

The splint I've had on my finger for six weeks came off on the 21st Jan but it looks like there is still some repairing to be done. It has though let me get back out on the bike which was great!
