Another great weekend of Triathlon action saw AerobicMonster.co.uk Coached Athletes Andrew Bigg and Are Wroldsen race at Olympic and Half Ironman distances.
Both myself and Andrew had been working towards his 'A' race - The Anglian Water Standard Distance Triathlon. He had a great result with a solid performance, going sub 2 hrs : 30 mins in his first outing over this distance, the time included a 66 min 25 mile bike! In Andrews words;
"First Olympic distance triathlon done!!! Loved the swim, bike felt quick, and the run turned in to a run / walk for the first half of it. Legs came back for the second 5k. All in all, pretty pleased with the time"
Meanwhile in Gydnia Poland, Aerobic Are Wroldsen was on target for going sub 5 hours again for his target race, 70.3 IRONMAN Gydnia. Unfortunately for Are he got caught draughting on the Bike which added another 10 minutes to his time and blew his chances of the sub 5. Are Wroldsen come see Coach Jarvis - We need to have words about the draughting rules !!!!
