Big Cow Race Report - An absolute Stonker!
by justal May 28th 2012
Just finished my Big Cow Triathlon Race Report and what a race it was.
My planned easy relaxing day on Saturday didn't quite work out as I ended up being taken to Northampton General A&E and spent all afternoon there being poked and prodded, having blood tests, urine sample, ECG's, cannula's inserted and even a doctors finger in a place you don't want to know about.
I then ended up having to rush around all over the place but seemed to recover from my ordeal OK and put in an epic performance for my first ever 'big' event - I certainly seemed to rise to the occasion and knocked 90 seconds off what I thought would be my absolute best possible time, finishing in 1:03:27.

Did anyone lese here compete?
My next race
Although I'd love to, I won't have time to blog here too often, but I do keep a regular blog all about my Triathlon (and other) exploits here:
I'm a born again Triathlete, having done a few races in my teens, I stopped doing any sort of training for over 20 years and then started again in 2011 when I was 40. I had fun doing them and didn't do too badly, so I'm once again on the way to being able to call myself a 'Triathlete'.
The blog above contains plenty of training tips, notes on any particularly exciting training sessions or those of note and my race schedules and reports. It also contains lots of other things too, all about living a 'Simple Life of Luxury' here in West Wales where we spend our time swimming, cycling, running, MTBig, windsurfing, surfing, gardening, beekeeping, watching the sky at night and many many other things - I hope you enjoy it.
