Overall, I would say that training has been going well. There has been no recurrance of my calf injury and my swim continues to improve. My first race of the season (White Lake, NC) is just a month away now and I have a "warm-up" at the Cary 10K road race next weekend. The calf issue and some typical "winter bugs" slowed things down early in the year, but more recently things have been going well.
I spent a very busy week working in the UK a couple of weeks back. It featured a lot of early starts and working into the evenings, so it was definitely a light week for training. I did manage some time on the bike in the gym; a short run around a very fancy golf course and a muddy six mile hike where I managed to get lost in the magnificent Cheshire countryside and ended up getting followed by a large group of about twenty (thankfully friendly) horses! On the plus side, I did get to stay at this place......
