When I decided to get into triathlon, the first bike I bought was a £700 Wilier Escape with an 18-speed Campagnolo Xenon groupset.  After a while, I spent a few pennies upgrading the wheels (Campag Scirocco, I seem to recall) until a few years later the groupset found its way onto an Argon18 frame and the old Wilier frame went to a friend to become the basis of a fixie.

With a handful of unused holiday from 2017 that I had until the end of March to take, I headed out last week to the warmer climes of Mallorca for a few days ‘solo training camp’, otherwise known as the ‘cycling on my new bike and doing the bare minimum of running and no swimming’ camp.

I guess when it takes you six months to update your blog, you should really be questioning why you still have it at all!  But surprisingly (to me, anyway), I do still get the odd mail and social media message from people kind enough to let me know that they’ve found previous posts and advice articles useful.

Wow, May 2017 and my first blog of the year.  That’s really bad.  Let’s say I’ve had other things on my mind.

Well, under my own definition, I can no longer call myself a triathlete.  It’s quite sobering.  For what it’s worth, my definition of a ‘triathlete’ is someone who has completed a triathlon, of any distance, in the last 12 months.

That’s not me.
