Yesterday by chance I was able to complete all three Triathlon disciplines in one day.
First thing Saturday morning I competed in my usual Brighton and Hove parkrun. Last week I beat my PB by 10 seconds and finished the 5k in 19:25. This week I missed it by 2 seconds coming in at 19:27. Still, I don’t feel too bad about that at all. I am certainly gradually improving.
Then we had a children’s trip out to Burgess Hill Triangle, where we met some friends and the kids played in the adventure pool. However there is also a 25 metre competition pool. So I took the opportunity to swim 400 metres freestyle. I miss-calculated first time and swam 450 metres, so I rested and did it again. I finished on 8:44.
Finally in the evening I cycled along Worthing seafront on my Specialised Allez for 10k. Very wet and windy and only managed at time of 23:32. Still I am pleased that over the course of a day I have essentially completed a Sprint Triathlon!
