Summer Duo 09


HEre we go, Race two in the DBMax organised, The Big Adventure Store (TBAS) sponsored Castle Combe 'Duathlon' series.  I only turned out because my spin PT, Richard, said he was doing it.  He failed to show, pleading a pulled muscle in his back but at least Kev was there.  I'm still blaming him though - it's his fault I'm doing all this....

Will narrate more later.

Finished 86/102, I've not bothered to work out where I was in the M/F standings, maybe another time.  Talking of which, did the 5km in 28:15.954, T1 took 1:45.597.  the seven bike laps of the track took 42:34.344 and the final 3km run 18:22.290.  I really need someone with me for that last run, the two girls in front were just too far ahead to make catching them worthwhile.  Total time was 1 hour 30 minutes 58.184 seconds - something to aim at next year!

Well done to all participants and to all winners.  My friends at TBAS had much to celebrate as their man romped the event - Dave Roper put in an awesome performance, something I can only dream about.  Oh well, on to the next in November - after a couple more triathlons....
