Another sunny day in London today! Out with my fave lady colleagues at the gloriously hot South Bank. Here’s a shot I took whilst crossing the river, you can really see the heat of the city from the photo!
I’m writing this in bed and it’s still 25 degrees out! London is in a heatwave and it’s come on strong. So much so our fave lido is suddenly too full to get into which makes me sad… We need to go in the morning only now if we want a chance! So as I cycled past that mental queue for the lido, I decided to clock a few extra bike miles instead and got this lovely view of London! Swings and sweaty roundabouts…
We were up at 8am this morning to have breakfast and head down to Tooting Bec lido to try and beat the crowds. Once we arrived they cleared out the whole pool for a big race which was in equal parts interesting and frustrating. When we left the queue was around 200 people deep to get in!
I also picked up my first ever wetsuit today which is super exciting! I’m sure you’ll be seeing a proper photo of me all kitted out very soon!
This post nearly became a “Pint?” categorized post until I remembered I had this stunning photo from this morning’s swim. London is tropical again and it’s bloody lovely for a morning swim before work.
A morning this sunny followed by an excellent evening with the girls? What more could you ask for of a Thursday.
Another round of brick training this evening! It hit 28 degrees in London today, absolutely glorious weather, but very warm for outdoor training! I cycled 15km home then spun round to run 5km with Nic in tow. We’re feeling quietly confident about the triathlon, hopefully this feeling will last all the way to the big day in July!
