Just wondering if anyone's had their cheque cashed for entry to the Beaver triathlon. I entered a few weeks ago but my cheque's not been cashed yet. I can't wait to find out if I've got a place or not!
On the overtaking in pool-based tris, I'm even more nervous than before about a race I'm doing on Sunday (I'm only doing it to try and help get points for my club for a team comp).
Last year I swore I'd never do another pool-based race. I put down my correct estimated time. When I was tapped on the foot by the bloke behind me I stopped at the end to let him pass. Once he was in front, I tried not to touch his feet as I guessed he would get away from me eventually. Anyway, he didn't and I couldn't help but touch his feet, even when I was shortening my stroke so much it must have looked like I was doing some strange drill.
It was a long swim for a short pool with narrow lanes - about 800m - but he wouldn't let me pass at the end of the pool. Eventually I managed to overtake at a moment when there were only 3 of us in the lane.
Hope this guy's not there on Sunday, and hope you don't me butting in with my moan.
