That's true.... Road bike is going to have to wait until the new year so slow bike times until then as that is where I lost time. 7 mins swim I didn't think was too bad, just waiting for the official times to come up....

timings here buddy.....

i came 199 out of 258, not brilliant but not bad as it was my 1st

how about going up the runway, that head wind was like hitting a wall !! ..... i did 11mph going up and 28mph going the other way

Did you also see all the bkes that got crushed in transition?? near the end massive gust of wind and the bike rack fell over!!!!

Well that's the last time I get my brother to time my swim!!! He was 2 mins out and they haven't got my run or bike times......

so I cam 205th.... Not bad but disappointed with the swim.... That run way was just mean. And to do it twice was evil!!!!


my bike was on that rack, went back to pick it up and they'd moved it.... Think she's ok....... 

it was great fun to be able to watch the fast runners coming in after us....


well done JB!!! Are you doing Halstead on 9th June!?

the swim time must include the transition time aswell, because my swim watch said 6.41 and recoreded as 9.52


not doing halstead, but looking at another at friton lake, also have you seen this new triathlon place in chelmsford.......

That's what I was thinking, as they haven't put any transition times in. Am keeping to my brothers time then.

will check that place out, there is a good one in Colchester although they didn't have a lot of swim stuff apart from suits and goggles. oh and very expensive sunglasses.....

Fritton tri is nice - did that last year. Bike ride is relatively flat - not surprising for Suffolk!

No probs - glad it went well. I'm trying to educate my feet out of needing them, but you can get tired of bleeding all over your running shoes...
