LFTC takes second place at the Dragon Slayer Duathlon

You know it’s been a bad week when you get a puncture on the turbo trainer! I kid you not. Anyway, all was made good when I checked the results of the Dragon Slayer Duathlon, part of the London Triathlon League, which a hardy bunch of triathletes from LFTC took part in last Sunday.

LFTC finished second in the league. Whoop, whoop! Our highest finish ever in a London League event. Anna McNestry led the way with a third place in the open women’s event. This is our highest individual placing in a London League event also and it was only Anna’s third duathlon ever. Optima Racing Team here we come!

If you have forgotten how miserable Sunday’s weather was let me tell you it was absolutely awful. The race had to be shortened due to the conditions and the offroad run became a bit of a mud fest. Well done to all those who braved the conditions and took part in the race.

This weekend is the last of Seb’s linked swim sessions. Those in the high volume lane be prepared for a real test. In the low volume lane we will be mixing up a little more technique and fitness for you. Lastly, remember it is Park Run this Saturday so make sure you register before the weekend. A chance to stretch the legs against your fellow clubbies and see where you are at with your running fitness.

Another little video for those Javier G fans. A typical training week for those at the top of the sport is pretty hard to comprehend.

See you in the weekend, Tim (LFTC Coach).
