Tenby!! It's that time again

Recommended Posts

Bags packed, bike prepped car fuelled.  A good night's sleep and then hitting the road for the family trip to LCW in the morning. Hopefully the 'hay is in the barn' to coin Monkie's phrase  Can't wait :)

OMG - cant remember the last time I heard Freebird. I just looked it up. Fingers crossed for weather thats not too hot, not too cold & just right ... as Goldilocks would say 😊

Importantly ... how is Miss Flipper? Cool calm & collected?

A far cry from 10 years ago. Have a great time and enjoy both races - Flipper and yours.

Have a ball out there FP. Flipper will for sure.

Cheer Ex.   Hoping to give it a red hot go this year, this calf is a worry but if it holds together on Sunday, I'm aiming for 30 mins quicker than last year.   IIRC,  last year there were 1050 starters, 550 finishers and I came 385th.

Have a great weekend.  Importantly the weather looks bearable!!

Been scorch all week but it's cloudy today with a yellow warning for thunder this afternoon in Tenby.  25C forecast for Saturday and 30C for Sunday, eek!

Yeah for sure mate. 9 years ago that accident, can you believe it?  Hanging that medal above my bed during rehab kept me going 👍  Flipper is already up and asking what she needs to do. I said 'just listen to to the teacher'  (that'll be a bloody first:lol:)

Swim is done. 90 mins. Felt rotten on 2nd lap had to pull right over and hurl. Then I felt like sleeping. My worst ' normal' swim. Weird.

On the plus,Flipper had a ball

Bike is done. Jeeezuus why do I keep coming back here! This effing course is savage. it kicks you to kingdom come if it's cold and raining and does the same thing when it's hot and windy. I truly never want to see it again:wallbash:

This is run as a sportive but I never draft intentionally because it's usually an IM prep. I really dug in on this one. I was in wave 2 which was medium fast. We didn't start until 8:45 and the sun was already hot and very windy.

Did my usual trick of forgetting to start my watch. Think I started it within 5 mins. Never looked at it all

ride. Absolutely stocked to see 6:36 on watch at the finish.

Shattered !
