End of the season approaching...!

DazDaz ✭✭✭

What are your plans for the last few weeks of the season (I know it's hard to swallow!) ? Gis a list!

I now have just <sob> a few left :
himuk - 31 aug
sevenoaks - 17 aug
south shrop - 31 aug
chiswick dry tri 18 oct

managed to get my first disqualification at thames turbo yesterday for breaking t-lights on the bike. bit bloody annoying at time. I did have a good 30-40metres but its bloomin tricky trying to go from 26mph to 0 in 40metres, clipped into pedals and on tri-bars. but at least they took splits for me.

  • Daz - how can you do two races on the same day? I don't think even the WildOne would do that.
  • DazDaz ✭✭✭

    its based in ludlow jj, do you know the town?
    its basically built on and around a hill, with a castle on top. the race takes place at the leaisure centre, about one mile north, down the road (corve street i think). i used to go to college here. very friendly place.

    will you come!? yay!

  • Crack of dawn indeed.....young people today, no stamina!
  • Just one left, boo-hoo, this Saturday, Kuhbach sprint 600/33/6.
    Then either Koenigstuhl 10k (uphill race) or Odenwald bike marathon 14 Sep.
    28 Sep Berlin marathon.
    Planning a month's rest afterwards.

    Then cross-country season.

    IM training begins right after Christmas!
  • I've put my name down for one more this season -
    28th Sept Cottenham.
    Now I've just got to get back to training for it!
  • Leybourne next Wednesday
    Southwater - 6th Sept
    Sevenoaks - 14th Sept

    I also entered the Nov 10K in Brighton but have just been reminded we have other commitments that day - doh!. I may have a go at the Chelmsford 10K the following week instead.

    So sad that my first seasons coming to an end already, looking forward to next year.
  • Shock horror! Just re-read the details for Sat and discovered the course is a bit longer than I thought - 700m swim instead of 600m. Might not seem a lot to you, but as someone who always dreads the swim, an extra 100m isn't a pleasant surprise.
  • Got Derby and Bala Olympic(21st Sept). then I shall be looking for duathlons, cross country season looms and then the big push for sub 3 at London.
  • just booked brighton tri this weekend, thinking about brighton 10k in november, and be rude not to do the Wimbledon 10k in early October given it's so close to home.
  • My tri season is now over. I was going to do the Cottenham tri but it has just been cancelled. :-( They can't afford the insurance because it isn't a club run race and also the council have just put a set of traffic lights in the middle of the course.

    Back to road races...
