    Some very speedy TTing, the inaugural East Grinstead Park Run and some very long endurance racing to tell you about this week!

    A battling 8th place in the World Open Water Champs for swim legend Val Mclaren - a water temperature of 28 degrees and sun burnt face and shoulders added to the difficulties! Val says that the single 3km lap was made more challenging for her by the first buoy being 1.2km away - slightly further than her eyes could focus! Apparently she’s going to spend the winter working on strength training to make the most of her excellent technique - true champion dedication! I’m sure others of you have… More....

    A couple of great performances to report this week; Juhana Kirk has been showing his speed again and sent the following; Just a few lines to say I did the Ashdown Forest Triathlon recently based at Cumnor House School and organised by Hedgehogtri. Course was more or less standard distance: 600m swim, 40k bike and 7.5k run. Somehow I managed to come second in a time of 1:54.30! Very unexpected.
