Triathlon time

I’ve gone and signed up for the Blenheim Palace triathlon in June 2013. There are a couple of guys from work who’ve signed up as well so there should be room for some healthy competition.

The training has already started, with cycling into work as many days as I can in the week. I’ve started to see an improvement in fitness already taking a massive 45 seconds off my 5k running PB on Saturday at the Southampton Parkrun getting under 21 mins(20:48).

I’m trying to work up a list of events for next year to see how I’m progressing, this years times are in the brackets:

  1. Eastleigh 10k – (44:32)
  2. Needles XC Half Marathon – (1:57:21)
  3. Isle of White Randonnee

I’m going to try and find some more to add as the year goes on as well.

I need to work on my swimming as my crawl still isn’t really anywhere near where it will need to be if I’m to make it anywhere near my target of somewhere around 1 hour 15 mins for the whole thing.

  1. Which distance have you signed up for? A friend of mine is trying to persuade me to join him at this event and so maybe we might get to finally meet in person. We are probably going to go for the “sprint” distance.

    1. I’m doing the sprint distance on the Saturday IIRC.

      I’m still thinking about doing the Virgin London Olympic distance the month after, just need to psych myself up enough to enter.
