Club Update and Training Plans for the week of Saturday 16th June

Congratulations to Dave and Sean who, last weekend conquered the 113 – a half iron distance race in the Cotswolds.  They both smashed the swim in just over half an our each, cycled 56 miles and then both ran the half marathon is just over 2 hours – an amazing achievement well done.  Dave came home in 5 hours 25 minutes and Sean in 5 hours 40 minutes – and it was hot too!!


Good luck today to all Standlake Primary School children who are taking part in a triathlon at the Sailing Club – the first leg is a kayak on the lake, followed by a bike ride and a run!  Have fun everybody involved.


Kirsty and I have entered the Cotswold ladies only Tri on the 24th June.  There is a novice event and sprint relay – for anyone else who fancies a go:


The TriFerris Cotswold Sprint, this year on the 9th September is now sold out but if you fancy having a go in September then there is the Humanrace Season finale triathlon on the 16th September at Eton Dorney… looks like a good one to end the season – there is a first timer distance, as well as a novice, sprint and Olympic distance.. and it’s always a pleasure racing at Eton Dorney:


Training plans are below… hope to see you soon
