August 2013

Or “what I did on my (kids’) summer holidays”…

Two races: 4th overall at Concorde Triathlon at the beginning of the month, and a win at the end of the month at August’s Eastleigh Aquathlon, in my GBR tri-suit.

Training time is down this month, partly due to summer holidays and partly due to a slightly increased focus on swim and run vs. bike. The aquathlon masterclass with Richard Stannard was inspiring.

Reading Triathlon is tomorrow. It’s a last chance for race tuning before the Aquathlon World Championships, even if it does involve a gentle interlude on the bike between the relevant business of swimming and running! 🙂

Finally, here’s the comparison between this month’s training, last month, and last year.
