Alison and Emma finsihing the Ironman

Ironman Barcelona 2nd October 2016

Report from Emma

Well what an end to the journey. The conditions in Calella were absolutely perfect with a flat sea to begin the race. The swim was actually a pleasure! The start went well, marshals allowing 6 swimmers in every 4 seconds, giving us all our own space to start and I soon got into a very easy rhythm with my stroke which I found easy to maintain throughout giving me a swim time I was immensely proud of.

The bike was a little more gruelling. The course was rolling, on good tarmac, gently sloping downhill with a tailwind all the way out. A few hills but no problem at all. The nutrition worked but as I began to feel more nauseas it was harder to take it in but take it in I did.

Onto the run and what a joy to get off the bike! I was so elated to make the cut off and felt relieved to be upright! My legs and joints were not keen at first but energy levels were good.

My legs hurt but energy levels felt good however by the 3rd and final lap my legs from the hips down were seizing up. Walked probably half the last lap trying to keep my nutrition down. With about half a kilometre to go, family and great supportive friend spurred me on and I FLEW to that finish line! An amazing run down the red carpet, I blubbed so unfortunately all my finish photos have closed eyes!

Never mind, I felt awesome! What an absolute tremendous experience! Then I promptly threw up in a nearby bush!

Sandman Full Trithalon 18th September 2016

Sandman triathlon done. 1K swim, 60K bike, 10K run.

What a great event. Probably my favourite event so far. Well organised and a nice atmosphere (like most events really).

Brilliant location, my first sea swim and beach start (so got to feel like a pro!), quite a tough bike (not that hilly but seemingly endless long uphill drags) and great run through the woods with a tough last stretch on sandy paths and the beach.

All in all very scenic. Will definitely revisit next year if anyone fancies it.

Cotswolds 113 Middle Distance 21st August 2016

Alison returned to compete in the Cotswolds again after doing her first ever middle distance triathlon last year.

It was Emma and Andy's first middle distance.

Andy did a great time and raced it, though he felt fairly battered afterwards.

Alison didn't beat her time from last year, but her and Emma were treating this as a training session rather than a race, in preparation for their Ironman in October.

Will Bloomer running

Blithfield Triathlon 31st July 2016

A cold morning for a nearly August day! We were glad to get in the water to warm up... until we got into the water that is! It was very chopping, no one could see the buoys, and I personally didn't enjoy the swim at all!

The bike course was much nicer. Plus the sun came out!

The run course was flat, but dangerous (the ground jumped up and head butted me!), but none the less we all had a great day and Will showed us all up by doing too well!

This was Lukes first standard distance. He seemed to almost enjoy it.

Alison came 1st in her age category.

James did the sprint distance and did an amazing time too.

Well done everyone.

Andy Speke completing the race

Wenlock Triathlon 10th July 2016

Andy finally got over his fears and completed the Wenlock triathlon! After crashing on his bike as he came into transition, Andy failed to continue with the Wenlock Triathlon (on account for being taken to hospital) several years ago. After lots of nagging, we finally got him to give it another go.

Andy was more cautious than usual on the bike (his excuse for Julian beating him overall by 5 seconds!), but completed it without crashing and managed to see just how long and damn hilly the run is!

This was also Lees first sprint distance triathlon (after completing his first GO TRI in June). He had a brilliant race.

Well done to everyone who raced. Roll on next year!

Chatsworth Triathlon 3rd July 2016

An extremely cold river swim, a hilly bike (hills that make Shropshire hills look flat!) and very hilly off road run, but both Emma and Alison did amazingly well!

The standard distance swim was cut short to 1000m due to the river water temperature only being 12 degrees (in July!!!!). Emma struggled to get her wetsuit off in T1, due to no feeling in her freezing cold fingers!

Alison qualified for her age category in the ETU next year.

Leeds ITU Standard/Sprint Triathlon 12th June 2016

Although the organisation of this event wasn't great, we over come the setup (and retrieval) of two transition areas located miles away from each other. I think we can all safely say that we will not be doing another race with separate transition areas!

Despite this, we all enjoyed the race and had an amazing weekend. The weather held up and some of us even got to see the elites race!

Avenger Sprint Triathlon 5th June 2016

This is a well run event, held on the grounds on Ragley Hall near Alcester, with any profits going to charity.

A 650m swim in the lovely lake, then a 22k beautiful rolling hills bike ride followed by an off road 5k run around the grounds.

This was the furthest I had run since March, but i managed to get round without my legs falling off!

European Triathlon Union Championships (ETU) Standard Triathlon 29th May 2016

Bill and Alison had the wonderful opportunity to travel to Lisbon in Portugal to represent Great Britain in the European Triathlon Union Championships (ETU) Standard Triathlon.

They got to try out the bike course on closed roads before the race day, have a lovely swim in the sea, watch the Sprint race and watch the Elites race!

A great experience for both to be part of the team GB.

Both Bill and Alison got to stand on the podium with the Union Jack after wining Bronze medals in their age groups.

Everyone at BASCTri thinks they are both amazing and we are very proud of them!

Congratulations to you both.

Rossendale Sprint Triathlon 29th May 2016

Marks third ever triathlon was a tough hilly one (more hills than Highley... or so he says)!

It was a hot day for climbing hills!

A 400m swim, followed by a 21km bike (with Mark looking very slick on the bike), topped off with a nice a 5kn run.

Well done Mark. You are fast becoming a proper triathlete (with no socks)!

Slateman Standard Triathlon 22nd May 2016

Blimey it was hard! Toughest run I've ever done I think. Savage hill climbs through the quarry and a couple of other sneaky climbs followed for good measure. The bike and the Llanberris pass wasn't exactly flat either. I'm proud to say I didn't walk at all on the run, and almost everyone else I saw did.

It also hammered it down with rain just before the start which didn't help matters. My feet were so cold on the bike they were still numb for the first 5K of the run!

Distances consited of 1000m swim, 50km bike followed by a tough 11km run.

247th out of 821 finishers.

Transitions were slow as I had a blister on my heel so tried to put a plaster on in T1 then put socks on in T2 - slick!). No prizes for guessing what I'm doing now - BEER!!

BCT Sprint Triathlon 24th April 2016

A great race for our 2 representatives at Wombourne Triathlon, Alison and Emma's first triathlon of the season and yes it was cold but they are hardcore!

Emma almost had an overall PB... if a bloke hadn't got in the way on the swim and maybe not putting a top on for the bike in transition would have resulted in her PB!

Well done Emma, 8th in age group, a great start to the season.

Alison smashed her previous PB by over 2 minutes! Won her age group (and there were a few in it for a change) by 18 minutes, and was 2nd (only 4 seconds off winning it) in the age group below, as they got her age group wrong. Obviously her youthful looks!

Storm the Castle Duathlon 17th April 2016

Alison and Emma took part in the duathlon located in Ludlow, which claims to be the toughest duathlon in the UK! 10k run, followed by a 33k bike, finished with a 5k run.

The organisers put on a bike familiarisation ride this morning a few weeks before the race, to allow competitors to get to know the course. Emma and Alison found this a very useful.

On the race day, both did really well, reaching their 3 hour target, with the bike averaging around 15 mph.

Both feel that there should be a reward for completing the country's toughest duathlon! It would also be brilliant as a club event because the atmosphere in the castle afterwards was amazing with lots of clubs there and it's local.

Both did so well, with Alison coming 1st in her age category and Emma coming 2nd in her category!
