Parkruns have been as popular as ever and some good running form is evident. Emma S, Steve W and Mick W have all knocked out a season's best at some point over the past two weekends with the best performance going to Mick who did an impressive sub-20 minute run on the hilly and comparatively slow Nostell Priory course. As well as season's bests plenty of age-group wins and some high overall results have also been recorded.
Emma S did her second triathlon of the year on Sunday 1st May - the Lincoln Sprint (S400m / B22K / R 5K) and in spite of an awkward blustery wind and the infamous 'cliff' of a climb on the bike section managed a very credible 6/16 in her age group (pic courtesy of SportCam). Emma is currently working hard on her swim - complete with coaching advice - and is hoping to move towards the podium in her next tri event this coming weekend.
We extend a warm welcome to new member Harry Cole. Harry has competed in triathlon since 2007 and has already achieved the massively significant step of completing a full-distance Ironman event (S2.4 miles / B112 miles / R 26.2 miles). He is currently training for the Mallorca Ironman to be held in September: we wish him well. Harry has a particular interest in veggie nutrition and there's no doubt that full distance events are as tough a proving ground for effective and efficient fuelling as it's possible to find.
