I would love to do this again next year, was a great race last year, and looks like it will be even bigger this next time.

what now?

Blaenavon tri is roughly an oly distance, pool based swim too. It's a tough course with a right bitch of a bike course. Not sure if it will be running next year though.

Activity Wales run a couple of oly distances races around the gower.

I like to get off road in the off season and do a bit of trail running, I like being dirty

I felt pretty good going out on the run, using a run 4 walk 1 strategy, and walking the aid stations. I had to go for a pee at almost every aid station which slowed me down a little. But going through the town with the atmosphere meant that I couldn't stop and walk, especially when running past the pirate support and getting shouted at when I was going to slow down. First lap was about 1:15. The second lap was pretty much the same 1:15, the third lap was a little slower, at 1:20, but I was feeling good and would love to put in a sub 5 hour run, so I abandoned the walks and run the last lap, thanking all the volunteers at the aid stations which thankfully I would not see again. I ran down the finish shoot and finished the run in 04:59:36 just beating 5 hours, well chuffed and finishing in a total time of 14:08:49.

A great race with tremendous atmosphere and support.

I was absolutely freezing after finishing and luckily had an offer to stay in a warm caravan instead of the tent, so a huge thanks to Button Mushroom and Slagiatt.

At breakfast the next day I think I said that although it's a great event I didn't think that I would do this again, but know that the pain has died down there's a little but of me thinking just perhaps I will enter next year. So hopefully it will sell out before I make my mind up.
