So now the matter of the slow jog round London is out of the way it’s time to up my game!
It’s time to dust off my wetsuit and pump up my tyres and get on my bike.
Little video of the first bike ride of the session!
Triathlon season is here.
I have entered 3 Triathlons so far this year; the first is in 3 weeks!!!
I am one of 1450 people competing in the Outlaw Half, which involves a 1.2 mile swim, a 56 mile bike ride topped off with a half marathon 13.1 miles on the 29th May.
On Sunday June 12 2016 over 5,000 triathletes of all levels of ability will compete on the unique course in Leeds as part of the world series (including the Brownlees). Starting with an open water swim in the glorious Roundhay Park, the bike leg will see us complete laps in and around Leeds city centre before completing a run course and crossing the finish line in Leeds city centre, this is an Olympic distance event meaning a 1 mile swim, 25 mile bike ride and a 6mile run, easy YES?
The main event is then in July the UK IronMan in Bolton, which involves a 2.4 mile swim, a 112 mile bike ride topped off with a marathon 26.2 miles all to be completed in a maximum of 17 hours or you get disqualified!
The question is do I have time to learn to swim front crawl in time!?
