Got a podium spot in my Age Group and in the veterans category at a Sprint triathlon this morning, good to test the fast twitch muscles as well as the slow now and again..

Different race altogether to what I'm used to for sure, normally it's a steady swim, fast bike but hold something back for the run, start the run off steady and push and see how hard you can go for 13.1 miles.

A sprint is flat out from the gun.

So after a year plagued by injury, illness and life just getting in the way, plodded round my only event this year a sprint Duathlon. It was sloooow, 1hr 31mins at Oulton Park. However fitness was in such a state that just finishing feels like an achievement. Of course I utterly cocked up my watch going through transition 1, didn’t notice until transition 2 so other than official timings no real data to analyse. Hey ho.

Really need to work on my running as I’ve really struggled to get back to anything like the form I was in at this time last year so think the focus is going to shift to some 10k road races over the winter then maybe some mountain trail short ultras over the spring and summer. Onwards….

Oh and as a final insult I forgot to press go on my Garmin head unit so got no data for cycling either. What a fuckwit.

Ironman Barcelona last year I lost my Garmin watch in the swim in the first 100 metres, I did remember to hit start on the Garmin on my bike but somehow managed to delete the file and of course no run data. No data on Strava, so it never actually happend a bit like your duathlon ;)

London Marathon completed Sunday. Amazing event. Was aiming for sub 3:20 and got 3:08:51 so was chuffed with that.

Great run SV , in my mind in that crowd that equates to 7 min mile pace. Well done. Worth all the effort.

8:51 from being classed as an 'elite' athlete. Very impressive.
