I’ve decided to enter:
- The New Forest Triathlon. This is nearly an Olympic distance race on 3 May 2009. I’ve entered it because I want to do a race before Lanzarotte and there are not many to choose from. It has a 1,100m lake swim and so will be really, really cold. I did it in 2007 and the lake swim caused me problems because (1) I wasn’t in the lake until a couple of seconds before it started and (2) my goggles kept leaking. I was disappointed with the bike because it was the first time I had put clip on tri bars on to it for a long time and I wasn’t used to the position. The run is mostly off road and I wasn’t used to that sort of thing then either. Hopefully, I’ll do better this year.
- The British Triathlon National Club Relay Championship in Nottingham. This is on 22 August 2009. I am doing this with people at work and we are planning on entering three teams of four people. I haven’t a clue what the distance is: The swim is either 400m, 500m or 750m, the bike is either 15k or 20k and the run is 5k. Different bits of the website say different things!
