this is a superfast update as i am perched on a wall on the peurto del carmen seafront, it's not a ver comfotable wall, being made of lava rock and the sun has gone down too its a bit chilly. steven is waiting for me in teh local 'spansih ' bar in front of britain's got talent , showing on sky tv. that gives a flavour of the resort!
we've been here a week, done a bit of recoveing from my slightly dissapointing, but still within the realms of respectable (and certainly sufficiently painful) 3:01 at the london marathon. set off on good pace - a litle too good, really -and slowely faded to 7-ishmin/miles
been riding the winds and re-familiarizing myself with teh layout of the island - and the TT bike! for a bit of a kick up the arse i raced th evolcano olympic triathlon today. famed for the high profile field of triathletes it attracts in preparation for eh Im in 3 weeks time. i managed a reasonable race - that's all i can say. not super quick but a good hard training session. celebrated with a beer. well, it'd be rude not too.
