  1. Pol's Triathlon Malarky

    This is a bit of a test blog so may get deleted at any point.

TBH i havent been training that serious or religously but have put alot of road miles in, including a few sportives. Not a lot of swimming has been done but the worst discipline to me is running.

    I suffer from cheese knees which surprisingly have been ok until ...
