First Triathlon done, harder than I thought as realistically not done enough on the bike, swim in pool went well, the hills in clitheroe were undulating and Jeffrey Hill was beyond me. The run was soo muddy and I fell twice, although sliding down the hill on my arse was quicker than running! Going to sign up for Southport Olympic distance now as it's local to me and the course is flat, going to train hard and next year do myself justice in Clitheroe
Pool was emptyish yesterday and managed a pb for 400 metres - 8:49. I'd love to get some coaching but work and family means I can only swim 2-3 times a week between 630-730 in the morning. Can I ask people's opinion on the best drills for improving my technique?
mrs digger, I had three years off running and thought I'd never get back to it, started cycling last year and thought I'd run a little, then I found out the pool near work opens at 630 so thought, what the hell enter a triathlon! The swimming has definitely helped make me a stronger runner, albeit a slow one.
hopefully a positive race report next weekend and then I'm looking to maybe do Southport Olympic distance in June.
