Today's event was a 5k Run/20k Bike/5k Run duathlon - so a chance to get my old bike out, old is an important word as its a 20 year old Dawes Mountain Bike.
|Ok, back in the later eighties and Dawes used Pink & Black alot...|
OK, armed with two bananas and a half packet of jelly babies off I went.
The first 5k was like a normal ParkRun except I had to keep to pace myself as their was a lot more to come,
and felt good.
|Still smiling ... must be the first half then ...|
|Final straight (back to the Billy Whizz hair)|
Phew, after that 'extra peddling' back to the running for the final part of the running, this time not so pleasant compared to the first one, but after giving by the power of Jelly Babies I managed it (I may have given out a few to some of the other runners to cheer them up).
Overall, a great race, and I completed it in 1:42:20 which was about the time I expected - now back to running.
