Triathlon Man

Running the Barcelona Marathon will be my biggest achievement this year but now I can proudly say I am also a Triathlete after completing a local Sprint Triathlon yesterday.
A Sprint Triathlon consists of a 750m swim in the sea, a 20km bike ride and a 5km run.
I didn’t do much training for this event as I knew none of the 3 disciplines would give me any difficulties and I had no intentions of trying to do it at any kind of speed. I am also enjoying focusing on gym work now.
4 amigos (Tony Poole, Dave Tait, Wally Walton and moi) took part alongside 70 or so others in our category.
It was a great occasion. Despite not pushing myself too much, I also don’t think I could have gone any faster anyway.
I finished with a time of 1hr33m which seems to be a relatively decent time for my first attempt. Dave Tait did really well at 1hr17m and Tony Poole did 1hr47m but what an amazing achievement for a man ready to celebrate his 60th next year ! Wally lost his timing chip so we have no idea how he did but it was around 2 hours.
We finished the day off with beers and food on the beach with our families then I came home and enjoyed listening to Pressure for a while before heading to the pub to get some junk food and a few more Martinis.
A great day all round.
