Tri-Force

I was lucky to be part of a very active and friendly triathlon club in St Albans. Despite my lack of training and races – I was very new to the sport – they didn’t reject me took in one of the Tri-Force team in the Nottingham club relay championship.

When I arrived at the venue, the Nottingham National Water Sports Center, I was amazed by the number of people and bikes. It was more or less being in an outdoor bike show.

Format

The format of the race was nice, as you had a break between each discipline. Each team member had to compete on his own. So, the order was Swim1 -> Swim2 -> Swim3 -> Swim4 -> Bike1 -> Bike2 -> Bike3 -> Bike4 -> Run1 -> Run2 -> Run3 -> Run4, where 1,2,3 and 4 are the team members.

The swim was in the lake. And as usual, people swam on each other, and you couldn’t see anything in the water, not even your hands.

The bike ride was nice and flat, around the lake.

And the run, slightly hilly, again, all around the lake, with a straight line finish in front of the grandstands.
