Ultra / Adventure racing
Whats your favourite, best discipline
Just wondered which disciplines of the swim, bike and run (unless you wish to add another - walking/hiking, climbing, etc) are your favs and which you are good at - in order
Dr Nic Twinks
1 Swim, 2 run, 3 bike (by a long way)
And am "best" at them in that order too, but I guess that kinda follows.
MMmmm Universal Twinkler
bike (by a long way)
Swim (very poor but improving)
And same as Nic as to 'order' in which I'm good at them too
Like my children I love them all the same. Am equally average at all of them in my own mind but split times relative to others in a race would probably indicate that the bike is my weakest with swim and run about similar.
Must say i really can't stand cycling hard on the road but love racing in tris for some reason. Probably the reason for the crap bike splits.
Same as Dr. Nic.
Swim, run, bike.
Improving all the time on the bike. Should make bike equal to run by London triathlon 2004.
ive totally changed since last year though. in 02 id have run top of both.
Chris from TriTalk
I thoroughly enjoy T1 more than any other part of the race. Does that count?
Dr Nic Twinks
I prefer T2. But the finish-y bit is always good as well.
3-swim run bike
1.run 2.swim 3.bike
Altough plan on improving bike skills ready for next year. Plan on always keeping the running strong as it's lovely passing people who've had better swim and bike disciplines!
Tee hee. I second that IW, although I'd probably put eating at the top. (people will keep bringing cakes into work...)
seriously much prefer cycling, as i've been doing it for years.
slightly less slow at cycling than other two.
more a case of which one am I least crap at... running.
Like the biking, but need to improve..
swimming.. er yes .. well.....
Found out this summer that I am far better at cycling than I ever was/will be at running. Wish I'd taken it up years ago!
Love running training, hate running races, hate bike training but love bike races. Wheeeee!
Swimming ... really, really rubbish. But at least I've got beyond the 'drowning' stage.
