Open water sessions at Hetton Lyons Country Park have begun again
£4 for un-coached sessions. Sign up at 6pm, in the water for 6.30pm. Don't use a satnav to get there as you'll get lost! Check google maps first to orientate yourself - the park is on Downs Pit Lane.
Ironman Taiwan Continuing his Ironman world conquests, Big-E completes Ironman Taiwan(Kenting). Swim pretty good 1.09 hrs for the 3.8 km - very hilly bike course first 70km then rest 110km ok but loads traffic on open roads 6 hrs 27 and what I expected - and a hilly marathon run - hot and humid - so dehydrated that my hearing was echoing and legs cramping on run - knew it was happening, drank gallons with salts but to no avail - just too hot for us big Norske people! Well that was Ironman number 36 onwards and upwards!
Richard Sill won the age 60 male prize in the duathlon promoted by Coalfields RT last Sunday morning.
Terrible cold weather with heavy rain. A well organised event and 152 people finished the race.
