15th and 5th fastest run split off a 330 watt rain soaked ride. Pretty happy but just needing that bike pack to come together and tend to my swimming some more.
Yokohama really exceeded my expectations as a place. Very nice people, super clean and organised. Although the 12 hour flight and jet-lag isn’t great, I’d defo come here again.

The calm before the storm in transition
One of the funniest things I’ve seen before a race – Richard Murray’s bike complete with a Snickers!
Back to Loughborough now for a few rest days then a big 3 week block into hopefully….. Europeans.
24th solid start to the season. Was a little frustrated I got stuck in the second pack which didn’t work too well together, and ultimately was a minute down on the main pack in to T2.
Feeling I’ve winter well, on to Yokohama!
Post race – got Alistair to sign a top for HHAC presentation evening raffle.
Three times British Duathlon Champion – more to follow…
First race of the year – 2nd place after leading most of the way.
I’ll be racing Dewsbury 10k in early Feb to see how the extra bit of run mileage has gone then plan to race Wilmslow Half Marathon on 24th March. This will be my first time at the distance, but given our (Myself and training partner Adam Bowden) weekly tempo run is 50 minutes long now, I’m sure we will cope ok. (Bowden racing Workingham half)
