19 Month Update May 2019
I’ve just got back from the 2019 Pontevedra ITU Aquathlon World Championship race for male 55-59 Age Group.
What an amazing experience – loved it!
I placed 36/40 in my age group race – 1K open water swim then transition into 5K run.
Swim was cold (14 degrees) and up to halfway against a strong current – I placed 39/40 – it was tough as I’m not a strong swimmer.
Run was hot (23 degrees, no shade) but a nice 2 lap flat course – I placed 17/40 and would have run through more places had I not lost so much on the swim.
My hip performed perfectly and allowed me to deliver my very best race.
Looking forward to improving my swim and continuing to train consistently, strongly but sensibly for the run – hopefully sub 20 next year.
