Racing results coming in thick and fast so apologies if I miss yours and sometimes let people know a little belatedly! Kat Parkin’s 3rd place at Arundel Long tri a few weeks back being a case in point- sorry Kat, great result. More recently, Andy Peel finished top 10 and 1st in his AG at Ardingly Standard and great to see Kev Bashford back racing in the Sprint distance along with Sinead Taylor - well done both. Result of the week however goes to the remarkable Ken Treadwell who won his AG (70-74) at the English Sprint Tri Championships at Thorpe Park - brilliant job Ken and thoroughly deserved.

In other news, Pete Holley wants me to let you know that his Farewell to Blighty party will be at The Old House At Home in Dormansland from 8.00pm onwards on Saturday 29th July - hope lots of you can go along to see him on his way and thank him for all his efforts over many years with the club?

Martin has asked me to pass on this note from Aldo at Weir Wood Reservoir:

We have a Zone 3 wetsuit try out evening on Friday 23rd June that I would like to invite the EG Tri Club to. This is an opportunity to try the latest wetsuits and swim run kit, as well as a lovely 20% off. It starts at 5pm till 7pm.

Finally, as if I needed another lesson that age and infirmity can never be outrun, my left hamstring pinged in spectacular fashion on Tuesday night on the track at K2! As I rounded the bend on the last 150m sprint of the night with the wind behind me it felt for a few strides like I was flying but then with, to me, an audible twang I was suddenly doing that weird one legged hopping thing whilst turning the air blue with a range of expressive expletives! Ho Hum, maybe I’d better stick to scuba and skydiving - much less dangerous!

Train safe
