Did the South Shropshire Sprint yesterday (400m, 26K, 6.25K) - finished in 1:39:something...was a bit disappointed with that time to be honest, even though I know I shouldn't be. My lack of speed on the bike still frustrates me! And I found the run tougher than I'd expected. V pleased with a swim time of 6:33 tho! :-) Bike was quite hilly I guess, and I think the slightly longer than usual course caught me out a bit.

Still a v nice race, beautiful day, and good to see Daz there (sailing past me on the bike shouting "Come on!!!")

Not sure what his finish time was but probably 1:20-1:25?

MMmmm Universal Twinkler raced too and did a great time of 1:28 - only a few months after getting out of plaster!

How did you find it, Daz?

yes Nic had a good time.. and was very pleased with my progress since the op!

whats more the 1:28 beat last years time by nearly 2mins.. so well chuffed!

And you WILL get faster on the bike I promise!

well done both of you, I was thinking of you yesterday and wondering how you were getting on.

I was thinking of you three as you pootled speedily about that gorgeous town.

Well done.

[drums claws tappily]

come ON Daz...

actually 'pootled' outside the town.. to the north on a 3/4 up hill wind in face bike.. hardly see any of ludlow, but nice views of surrounding hills
29/09/2003 at 10:51
I didn't really see any of the nice views....mostly what I saw was my handlebars or the road a few feet ahead of me... ;-)

Well I saw Daz once on the bike (as he overtook me! Having started 10 mins? after me on the swim) and then once on the run too. He looked v cheery both times and gave me a high five on the run. I think he must have finished between 1:20 and 1:25..but for more info than that we have to wait for the fella himself.

oh that's a shame, Twinkles an' Nic. Ludlow's so pretty.

[impatient tapping grows louder...]

I suspect he's writing up a nice long detailed report...
29/09/2003 at 11:52
Maybe he's got the day off and stayed up there..?
29/09/2003 at 11:56
being force fed cream teas and muffins by his olds....

'oh but we never get to see you these days...'
29/09/2003 at 11:56
*LOL* Did they look like him? Did they both have peroxide hair?
29/09/2003 at 11:59
Lets not knock peroxide here eh!!!
29/09/2003 at 12:09
I was there too - it was a great race. I was in Daz's heat, didn't see much of him though as by the run he was about ten minutes ahead of me. I think my time will be about 1:31 ish. Really enjoyed it except for the bit on the bike where I thought I was lost (I wasn't) and thought I was going to get captured by some gap toothed locals and kept as their gimp for the rest of my days.
29/09/2003 at 12:17
Wow... I never knew!!

(and pssst, you were lucky.. most of the gap toothed locals were still in bed.. thats why its run early on a sunday morn...!!)
29/09/2003 at 12:24
yeah - in bed, with their families.

SR, I did think if you only you had the leather zipped face mask to go with the black gear you might have been ambushed on the bike leg and stored in someone cellar! :O/
29/09/2003 at 12:28
SP - cool, I probably saw you on the run then? I started in the wave 10 mins earlier yet finished in 1:39....

I thought I was lost on the bike too at one one around and I had fears of missing a sign or something.
29/09/2003 at 12:30
Sorry yes I meant "SR"
29/09/2003 at 12:32
SP short hand for SlowPoke.. my fault!!

what did ya' do Daz?
29/09/2003 at 12:33
but I showed you the course a month before...!!!
