One Fast Hat
by justal Jul 2nd 2012
Looks a though I've bought myself some time with my new aero helmet... I've only used it once so it's impossible to tell if it really does provide me with an advantage as it could just have been that the wind was on my side today. However, over the past three weeks I've ridden the same 13.2 mile time trial course to gauge my time.
1st time without an aero helmet: 35:50
2nd time without an aero helmet: 35:46 (4seconds faster)
3rd time with an new aero helmet: 34:35 (a massive 1 minute 11 seconds faster)
Could it all be down to the pointy hat?
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.
