Well last Sunday I was joined by the 2 Tony's & had another early start & drove down to Crowborough in Sussex for another Tri. It was a 400m swim, 20k bike & the usual 5k run. I had been shield training Thur & Fri the previous few weeks & my legs were heavy before I event started & by god the cycle nearly killed me off. The first 4k were downhill & I reached nearly 45mph. The bike ride was a tale of 2 half's, with the adage of what goes down must go up. The second half of the ride nearly killed me!!!

|The other machines at the start!!|
|Racked & ready to go|
|The speed & profile of the ride. God I hate hills!!|
The run was another hilly circuit but it didn't compare to the bike ride. A bacon sandwich to finish & another excellent organised & run event that I will do again next year.
|Another one chalked up!!|
I'm now looking forward to next year & I have entered a half distance, which is a 1.2 mile swim, 56 mile bike ride & a 13.1 mile run. I'm hoping this will take me about 6 hours. I need to work on my swimming & running & to help with the cycling I have ordered myself a new bike
|My new baby!!|
I've only got 2 more events this year that I've entered, a 100 mile bike ride this Sunday & then Eton Downey Tri on the 29th September. I think I need a rest after that!!!!????
