Bude Awesome fouresome Quadrathlon.

Throughout the 2014 Quadrathlon season I have struggled with several open water swimming demons.

The feelings of, jelly legs, nausea, and lack of coordination in transition.

I decided to try and deal with them and how best but in the true Lincsqaud tradition “Extreme”.

So I went on holiday. That was after booking the Bude Quadrathlon in Cornwall.

Lincsquad Ladies first at Louth.

 

Ladies first at Louth Tri.

Sunday saw the Georgian market town of Louth hosting its first Sprint triathlon. SBR Events put on a great show which was perfect for a handful of Lincsquadders wanting to fly under the radar and gain some much needed practice, fitness, experience or confidence in preparation for the upcoming  Brigg Sprint. The 140 finishers started the day with a 400m pool swim, a 13.75 mile bike ride followed by a 6 k (2 loops) run.  The longer distances meant they got plenty of value for money than your normal ‘Sprint distance’ tri. I guess that’s how you should look at it, rather than having another 10 minutes of ‘eyeballs out’!

Ironman Copenhagen “The Dobber way”

IMCopenhagen High Five

 

It all started back at team relays in 2013 as we were packing up, as the entry for IMCopenhagen opened on the Bank Holiday Monday.
