A weekend of sport with both the Rock N Roll 5k And The Cheshire Triathlon taking place this weekend.
Liverpool Rock N Roll 5k
Enjoyable 5k on Saturday morning, great atmosphere to match the lovely weather. My time was 24:06 which I was very pleased with as my PB was recorded last year in the West Kirby tri which was 23:24:00. I would love to be able to get a sub 20min 5k but I am not sure if I can as my knee cause’s me to much pain if I go to fast, maybe one day. Overall it was a great morning and I will defiantly sign up next year.
I’ve done the Nantwich Triathlon a number of times now and it’s always good fun. I know the setup of the transitions so I don’t need to worry about what items go in which area. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the courses are well marked.
Sign up for the next event here.
I felt great on the swim and the bike, my training in the pool over the winter has made a big difference.
I’ve put my times below from today’s event, I’ve made a PB on the Swim and both transitions. The bike was only seconds of my best time and the run was a little slower than normal which I think is mainly down to running the 5k in the heat the day before.

Overall, very enjoyable triathlon and looking forward to running the next UKtri in September. I’m also doing the West Kirby Tri later this year.
The medal and the race number…
