Cardiff Blackweir Time Trial (CBTT)



  • RG - I am on the pics, but can't see them properly now, bloody work computer.  I came in 16th, weraing blue Nike shorts, white Nike T-shirt, and blue'ish gloves as it was freezing lol.  Defo saw you, but didn't know whe you were lol.

    We were also in Tescos later.

  • daz - My daughter was laughing at the thought that you were warm enough to wear shorts and tee shirt but needed gloves. Still looking for your pic.


  • daz - did you have a bandage on your knee?

  • I always wear shorts - don't do men in tight lol.  However, my little fingers feel the cold, and it was bitter image
  • Yep - a knee support! image
  • My hubby had shorts and  tee shirt on he said he had to clench his fists when running as his fingers hurt so much with the cold while running.   My fingers where ok but ny fet were so cold they hurt when I walked. I ned to dig out my thick socks!


  • RG - My toes felt fused together with the cold before the race image . They warmed up though once I got going. I too always need gloves as I've always got cold hands !

    Daz - "Don't do men in tights" - I'd be worried if you did !!!!! image

  • I've definately got to do this some time...maybe the weekend after the Llanelli Half...depending on how I am feeling!
  • Hi katie,

    It is a lovely course. My hubby loved running it and got a pb.


  • Daz - "Don't do men in tights" - I'd be worried if you did !!!!!

    Yes his vasealine habit is worry enough............

  • Katie - come and give it a whirl, it's a fab little event.

    Mmmm forgot to Vas on Sat, might make me quicker next time lol.

  • TT.. hun...  >>whispers<<  Hide your tights!!  image
  • Hi All,

    How did the second event go?

    Katie, did you go?

  • Hi All,

    How did the second event go?

    Katie, did you go?

  • Second event went very well.  There were 60 finishers, so numbers slightly up on last week.
  • hi sarah

     i ran this week too!  ankle is still not fully recovered so probably should have taken it easier than what i did oops!  omg could i tell i havent run for a week!!

  • Thanks everyone who turned up today for the second run, numbers slightly up on last week - 60.

    Weather was better than I thought it might be, must have helped as there were a few PB's and also the Course Record went.

     Look forward to seeing you next week.

  • Hi all,

    Well done Southwales22. Hopeyour ankle recovers fully soon. Bet it wasn`t as cold running it as spectating!

    Looking at the photos it looked great fun.


  • How did this go today, anyone do it? Bet it wasn't easy getting a pb in that wind !
  • Hi Sarah,

    Still haven't had a chance to do this one yet, did Llanelli Half this Sunday just gone so wanted to be rested for it. 

    I'm off on tour this Monday, and am away most Saturdays for a while but will definately try to make it sometime.

    If I wasn't being so lazy I could probably come this Saturday but not sure if my legs will have recovered properly from Llanelli... that's my excuse and i'm sticking to it image

  • Did this again today and there was another fairly good turnout. Quite windy but managed another pb. Thanks again to Phil and Co for organising it image
  • I'm gutted not to have made a return to this again yet - was at the first event but since then illness and childcare duties have conspired against me.  I'm dying to get back and see what I can do to my time!

    I think the idea, the whole ethos of the event, is fab.

  • Hope to see you there soon then HT !  image
  • Well we seemed to settled out on numbers over the last few weeks, once this London preparation period is over perhaps it will pick up again especially as we hit the summer.

     Just to let you know that the Lucozade Van will be with us for the run on Saturday 5th April.

     Hope to see you all there.

  • Oh thats good as 5th April is my next pb attempt image

  • Hopefully the weather will be good to us again then
  • Pity I got dodgy guts.

    TT's in the week(bike not foot) and felt good, but run last night and felt weak and shite image

  • JFDI ! image
  • and sh*t on the grass?
