First Triathlon

Friday, 31 July 2015 by

Are you thinking about doing your first triathlon? You’ve seen the distances (750mtr swim; 20km bike; 5km run or shorter for a tri-a-tri) and there is nothing that scares you, certainly not with a bit of training beforehand anyway. It’s just a bit daunting as you thought only real athletes did triathlons! But then you

AMPHIBIA BLOG – MATHEW PRITCHARD Firstly, i’ve got my licence back and i’m finally behind the wheel again. Some will say “oh god help us” but I’m over the moon as i can now drive to the pool at a time that suits me to train plus i can drive to Pen-y-Fan mountain again as

This spring I began to plan my triathlon race calendar-a silver medal in my age group at the 2014 European Aquathlon Championships meant that I had pre-qualified for this year’s championship race, so I was expecting to focus on my swimming and running.

So sport is good no doubt about it, as long as you avoid injury, illness, under-training, over-training, accidents etc……. but anyway I digress

It’s not easy to run a marathon, only about 0.5% of the populations of Western countries have completed one, but it’s exactly why hundreds of thousands of people around the globe set themselves the challenge each year.  Sub 3hrs is the Holy Grail for marathon runners, at least the quicker ones!
