First off, the 1500m sea swim in Llandudno. This is held on June 18th and is the same sea swim to the standard distance Sea Triathlon i also signed up for. I am crazy. At least that is the general consensus of opinion on facebook right now. I'm inclined to agree.
Not entirely sure as to why i choose to do a sea swim Tri for my first standard distance, but the fact i get to practice the swim made it seem less crazy. That and its not too far away and just the right time of year i guess.
But before then, i am doing the Pwllheli Sprint which is a 400m pool swim, 20k bike and 5k run. That's on March 27th. Then on May 22nd I am doing the Cheshire Sprint. Also a pool swim, but 500m then 20k bike and 5k run. For this i have company, Katy is joining me and we may have a friend from London come up to support us, which would be superb.
So it really just seemed like the natural progression to do the next distance event. What can i say. I need races to motivate me. I now have races to do that. My god do i have races planned. I also have the Ellesmere half marathon in 4 weeks, and my knee is still bothering me a bit. There is also a little 10k trail run on April 10th which i may do.
I haven't signed up for the Lichfield HM on May 1st. I'm gonna wait to see how things go. There are plenty of HMs i could do if i'm so desperate to do one. I really want to get a sub 2hr, but my focus has just shifted. I'm sure you get why!
So right now, i am shitting bricks!! I know if i train hard, i can complete them all. And hopefully even compete in them too, as opposed to just finishing. Bring it on!
