This is my recap of my time at Ironman 70.3 Staffordshire. This was my first middle distance triathlon and first Ironman event, I was using this race as a bridge between the sprint distance and full Ironman which I am taking on next month.
After July's GoTri this was my first attempt at a Sprint distance triathlon and forms part of my continuing training towards a full Ironman in Bolton next July.
A very tough race for more reasons than difficult obstacles, but a good fun afternoon out with great people.
My first mass start open water swim / race and my first swim over 1 mile. A lot of firsts for one day, have a read how things went on what was a very chilly morning in London
Having signed up for Ironman UK it is time to get some open water swimming experience. I have had 4 weeks of pool swimming which has seen my confidence and speed grow, now its time to take it outside!
Have a read of how my first ever triathlon went at the GoTri Biddulph event.
This was my first experience of Tough Mudder and just my second OCR after the Survival of the Fittest earlier this month. Have a read how I got on with all of the mud.
