My intentions this year (2009) are to take part in at least one event every
month, see list below. you'll see I failed in April, not a good start!
After each event, I'll try to put up my thoughts for you; follow the links
on the left. It's not great art, I'll never win the Booker, or anything
else for that matter (like my races), but the whole purpose is to simply dump my initial
thoughts (whenever I have them) about each event so that I have a reason not to
take part again next time (you'll notice that I've now done Blenheim three times, and been to
Stratford-upon-Avon three times as well, so that plan isn't working too well!).
Sept 6? –
Cotswold (tri) - booked
Oct 4 -
Warwick (Stratford-upon-Avon) (tri)
All triathlons are sprint distance (750m swim/20km bike/5km run) or
thereabouts; targeted time of 90 minutes.
The duathlons are 2mile run/10 mile bike/2 mile run; targeted time of 65
The bike ride is 'only' 54 miles.... Targeted time of 3 hours 30
Please check back to see how I fare during the year.
P.S. I'm thinking about 2010 already; I'll be 50 in January and am toying
with the idea of having a crack at my first marathon (no prizes for guessing
