Steyning Triathlon

Following the hamstring injury, I've adapted my training, reducing my intensity and cutting down my running significantly. So far it seems to be working, as I've put in a few good performances since my last update.

Best ever Park Run
Not my fastest, but according to official Park Run stats, my 18:35 in Apr 2015 was worth more than 18:10 in September 2010, this was a better achievement relative to my age - with an Age Grading of 78.26% Cool. This was a complete surprise. I'd run 19:18 at the Fulham Palace Park Run the week before. I put in an 18:55 the following week, so very encouraging.

AG win at Steyning Triathlon
The conditions were shocking for this race, with rain lashing down in high winds. At least it wasn't particularly cold. Decent result though with 6th overall and 1st 45-49 (of 9) and 2nd MV40.

My time was slower than last year, which I suppose given the conditions wasn't that surprising. However when I took a closer look at my training s/sheet, it showed that last year (while training for the City to Summit), I did a 2 1/4 hour run the day before & 5hr bike 3 days before. And I still managed a faster splits for all disciplines than this year. To be fair, this was after 7 months of consistent training and at peak volume, just before the taper. I was super fit and this year, I'd just had four weeks of come back after an injury that took 5-6 weeks out. Still, it shows that you can still be fast in a shorter distance tri on long distance training.



1st Midweek Duathlon
This was a small field, so the win wasn't such a big deal. More encouraging was my pacing for the runs. At 3:48 min/km for the first 2.33km and 3:50 for the second run of 4.85km that was surprisingly fast. It compares to 4:22 min/km for the Steyning 8km run (contains hills), but I rarely run faster than 4:00 min/km for any multisport run leg, so another good metric.



ETU Euro AG Champs, Geneva
Bonus - having missed out by 90secs on qualifying at Bala, I eventually received the roll down email and will be donning the GB team kit again in July. That helps compensate for having to drop out of the the Brighton Half and Marathon Smile



Next Race is at Arundel next week - I'm looking for another good AG result, one month further down the line on my recovery...
