Some of my waister pals - and other forumites were doing Matlock Tri, so I went along to support - it would have been rude not to.
It is a seriously undulating course for the bike followed by a run up High Tor and down again - with a pause to admire the views at the top. Needless to say I stayed at the bottom to enocurage and take photos as they came through transition.
The three Waisters made it to the finish line in good style - and for Ellie, her first Tri, it was a great result - she enjoyed it and plans more!
And so today its back to a routine of sorts, the teenbeanzes are in school and MrBeanz goes back to work tomorrow.
So I was up reasonably early to explore another 4 mile route - one which should be ok to do when the mornings get earlier and darker. Turned out to be 4.3 miles, with a long downhill near the beginning and a long gentle drag back home. Unusually my quads felt the downhill section - usually my routes are more undulating so they have time to recover.
Trouble is I am incapable of doing that 'stand on one leg and stretch the quad behind your back' stretch.
