Weekly Roundup 29/4/2019

With only one week until the Big T, the event is pretty much all planned out. More help will always be welcome on the day and it is a fantastic way to understand the sport more than just the weekly training.

There’s the Calne triathlion this weekend also. A few of us are racing, with this also being the first ever tri event for some in the club! Good luck everyone. You’ve trained consistently and well – you’ll smash it!

Onto this week’s racing and there has been loads going on with members smashing their pbs all over the place. First off we have Kiera and Emma racing at Corsham 10k. Kiera pbing with an awsome 1.06 and Emma struggling with injury but showing the Hot cCilli spirit to complete the race.

Making the trip to Hamburg we have Ian D who reached his goal of a sub 4hr marathon with a time of 3hrs54mins! We’re all so proud of you for this massive achievement and wish you a safe trip back home. You can pass on local info to Nicole for when she does her Ironman in 3 months. Don’t forget that the Germans market some of their alcohol free beer as a sports drink!

Members are starting to head out for Open Water training too. Vobster recorded 10-12degrees yesterday. Lake 32 is marginally warmer as it is slightly shallower.
