Back to Back Wins… and a 2 minute PB for Yeoman

Another weekend and another race. This time I headed back to Woking for a splash & dash race. Ran by Lee at Fullsteam event the pool based tri is perfect to see how the season has gone as I did this race back in April.

Going off last, I was lucky to have only one other person in my lane with the other fishes in the next lane so I could use them as a marker. Fastest swim split thanks to my BlueSeventy swim skin and off onto the bike.

A good friend lent me his Revolver Kronos disc so I was keen to see how it would compare to my zipp 808 firecrests. Well it was fast, super fast and it allowed me to take the fastest bike split and a clear gap on those looking to chase me down on the run. Switching to Ipro sport hydration is making a massive difference racing. My body always feels fresh and I’m not getting drops in performance which is real confidence booster.

The run course is twisty and that still is an understatement. The recent rain made the trail paths tricky but I was moving freely passing earlier starters.

Super excited to see that I was first overall with a 2min PB (mostly on the bike I must add) and around 3minutes clear of 2nd place.

Been a mad season to date. Now five 1st places 4 2nd places, couple of 4ths and a silver at the sprint champs. One race left at Thorpe park for the final European qualifier. So it will be good to measure myself against the best around.

About Kate Wallace

I've always been involved with sport of some description, particularly adrenaline sports (skiing, boarding, kite-surfing, bungi jumps, parachute jumps, mountain biking) and endurance events (7 marathons, lots of halfs, Caledonian Challenge, London to Brighton bike ride, Moonwalk, played/coached rugby), but I'm relatively new to triathlon as it's actually taken the place of other sports after a couple of bad accidents! Although looking at the biographies of all you other Viceroys I'm a bit embarrassed to admit that all I've done are a few team traitahlons (running or cycling leg) and a couple of super sprints and sprints on my own, I'm hoping that being a Viceroy might persuade me that swimming in open water over 400m is actually possible.
