Training has taken a bit of back step over the past couple of weeks, firstly with travel & appointments ranging from IT issues, a leaking boiler, 3 wisdom teeth extracted, doctor/Nurse checkups & a years worth of administrative catch up that needed to be completed.
I still raced the UK70.3 soon after a long haul flight from Australia, which to be honest was a little too much to squeeze in, but I figure It’s home & Its important to race here & it was great to see so many familiar faces again…Jeeze I forgot how tough that course – 52 hills in 56 miles says it all.
Some mechanical issues prior & during the race didn’t help much but I stuck in as best as I could & finished 7th thank-you to Jamie of MSD that supported myself & Martin Jenson over the weekend & to The triathlon shop, Bristol & the Oxford Tri club.
Note.. pack wellington boots next time, UK weather isn’t like the continent

Next start – Ironman UK 31st July
Ironman UK will be my next start. It’s been 3 year since I have started here & the event has moved on from Sherborne to Bolton. I will be looking for a top finish here with a record of a 1st & a 2nd in my 2 starts in 2007 & 2008. The new venue looks just as demanding as the last course & I’m looking forward to it.
Thanks for the continued support
Stay posted for my 2001 ride & ill be pod casting with Joe Beer again in the coming weeks
