The first day with options! 1. Sea swim or 2. Lie in, I took option 2.
Legs a bit tired after aquathlon yesterday so made sure I had a good breakfast ready for today’s cycle.
3 groups set out for Teguise (31 Kilometres) at different times with the aim of arriving together for 12.30. It was a good steady climb with Jo, Ted and Sandra encouraging and coaching us along the way. The promise of cake and coffee did not disappoint, amazing selection of cakes. Coffee delicious and a bargain at €1.50.
Great quick ride back as nearly all downhill again with tips from Sandra about cross winds and cycling down hill. Couldn’t catch Toni and Helene the speedy downhillers.
Afternoon session in the pool for 90 minutes yes I repeat 90 minutes for a session of pool drills. Don’t think I have ever spent that long in a pool without a cocktail in hand and a float to lie on! However the session flew by with lots of coaching from Sandra and Jo, their patience unwavering with my limited swimming experience. I definitely feel a bit quicker than when I started the camp.
Quick change and cup of tea ready for a Ted talk, didn’t realise we would get a Ted talk on a triathlon camp!! I could have listened all evening to learn about how to maintain fitness after 55 and Ted is a fine example to us all. Supper then sleep ready for our mini tri tomorrow.
