Back from my holiday sporting a few stitches and a sore hand, Mrs A didn’t want me to do it, but today I raced the 2014 Grafman Middle Distance Triathlon. It was a little bit of a last minute decision to enter but I had always planned on doing a 1/2 ironman before Zurich. Grafham water is pretty close to home so it seemed to make sense!
My strategy for the race was my normal appraoch; survive the swim, wreck the bike and hold on in the run. And so it was, the swim was OK, the ride was OK and the run was hot. But I survived and got around in 5 1/2 hrs, it was a little bit of a wake up about the training I would need to do for Ironman but it was another step towards Zurich.
