There you go

I completed my third triathlonesque Childline Challenge in Swansea this morning in my fastest time so far. Icons passim delineate the 2007 and 2008 campaigns, and the event itself took a sabbatical last year.

Intriguingly, I tweaked my lower back in a forward fold at the beginning of Bikram yoga yesterday morning, and was in such pain that, for a while, I couldn't even stand never mind bend. I would have quit (what with a triathlon the next day) but I was too crocked even to get up and walk out. As I lay there however, I realised that there was nowhere I could go that was going to make my back better, so I persevered in the hot room emphasising stretches as I gradually improved, but easing very gently into any twists.

I was largely fixed come the end of the session, and well enough to cycle, swim and run this morning; lesson learned.
