Sunday 21st June

Liverpool Triathlon today - olympic distance. I only decided to actually start at the last minute due to the really bad cold I have had all week. Just took each discipline a stage at a time in case I had to pull out. Got through it - I felt the weakness in my body in the bike and found the four laps quite gruelling. Very cold too. But I managed to finish it in 2hrs 51 which is on a par with Athy as the run was definately not short!!

Really pleased that I gave it a go now - and finished 3rd in my age group. Very good event, well marshalled and organised. I found it less agressive than some of the Irish triathlons that I have done, especially in the swim.

I now need to get rid of this cold and get some serious training in for Antwerp.
