It was suggested this morning by Bill C that we should look towards building up for another small event whilst the weather is still good. For those of you who would normally classify yourselves as "swimmers" over "triathletes", why not consider having a go at the following two events:
- City of Perth Triathlon on 15th March - 400m swim / 10km cycle / 2km run
- Hillary's Triathlon on the 5th April - either 250m / 7km / 2km or test yourself over 750m / 20km / 5km
You don't need a flashy bicycle and at the very worst you could walk the run if you wanted to...but most of the rest of the Half Ironman crew will be at these events so it could be a good time to have a go.
So, if you are keen, don't forget we have a Monday evening cycle session at 6 / 6.15pm from the bottom of Reabold Hill and a Thursday evening run session at 6 / 6.15pm from the western-most carpark on Lake Monger drive that would be suitable for you to attend as we base these sessions on your own ability as opposed to feeling like you have to keep up with someone faster than yourself. What's more, you can just use your existing PAYG card - easy!!
And if you really get into it...why not look at entering a team for the Busselton Half Ironman on the 2nd May. One of you will swim 1.9km, the other ride 90km and the last will run 21.1km - not as scary as it sounds when you break it down like that!!
