Wow twice in one week…this has been unheard of recently!
Just a quick note to thank everyone on behalf of K and I for your kind comments and support recently
on our way to world domination!
The sporting community really is phenomenal and second to none!
So onto the next race: the Outlaw Holkham Half in 2 days’ time!
It will be my first ever half iron distance (1.9km swim, 90km bike, followed by a half marathon) as Kyle ended up doing the only one I’ve entered on 3 weeks’ notice, after I was hit! My A goal is to beat his time from that race 😉 (although he is one of those people that can do everything and finished in 4.42 with a 1.15 run split!).
Training has gone really well. I am running faster than ever before and my cycling is continuing to improve. Unfortunately, I had a crash at the Stonehaven Beer Festival Sportive, on the 1st bend on the descent on Cairn O’Mount (if you have been there, you’ll know that wouldn’t have been pretty!). Although nothing was broken, I have had shoulder issues since, but I am still hoping to put in a solid performance in the elite field of the race!
(speedhub gear is clearly amazing since there were no tears!)
(The beer was a great painkiller…at the time! We managed to get in the local paper with this shot!)
For those looking to track me, I am lucky number 8(is that a thing?!) and my race kicks off at 6.27AM (again, is that a thing?!?!?!).
