Club Update and Training Plans for the week Saturday 12th August

Firstly, CONGRATULATIONS to Dave Rivers and Pete Preston who took on the Lake 62 Olympic Distance Triathlon last weekend.  Dave finished in 1 hour 30 and came 8th in his age group… Pete had a more colourful time! Here is his account:

It all started so well and was going fine with another great swim doing 1.5k in 24.56 then things went a little bit wrong, the swim out was extremely slippery and upon getting out I slipped over and managed to cut my finger down to the bone which bled profusely, I had to seek medical treatment so spent roughly 8 mins in T1 finally getting on the bike to head out. 
The bike went well until the 20 minute hale, rain and wind storm with, at this point, a throbbing left hand.  On the last loop of the bike I stopped to help out a fellow athlete who I had been jostling for position with pump up his tyre as he had a slow puncture and no pump. …The run went without any hiccups bringing me home in 2 hrs 50 mins

Second: BIG NEWS about a BIG SWIM this weekend  7.30am at the West Oxford Sailing Club:  

A chap called Oliver Danvers is doing 22 tris in 22 days for the British Red Cross. ’22 Tris for 22 lives’ is in memory of the victims of the Manchester bombing.  

He will be swimming at WOSC on Saturday (meet at 7.30 am for an 8am swim) he’d like others to swim with him.  It would be amazing to be able to give him a huge TriHard welcome so please come along to the lake if you can – even if you don’t want to swim… please come to support him in his epic mission.  For more info or to sponsor him please visit:
