Nick Shasha had a good hit out at the Bridge Triathlon on closed roads and was rewarded with a 2nd. He followed that up with the London mile with 2500 runners aiming to smash a single mile, sounds easy, it isn’t if you are running at 4min 41sec pace…
The Bridge triathlon in Kent, so called because dramatic views of the Queen Elizabeth bridge were the backdrop for what was to prove to be a fast and exciting triathlon on closed roads.
Despite some confusion on the swim I managed to navigate well enough and have what felt like a really strong bike along closed and fast local A roads before settling down to the final 5k run. Again I managed another podium with 2nd in age group.
Next up was the City of London mile. This was too good an opportunity to miss. A free to enter 1 mile closed road race in the City of London is my kind of niche. Short, sharp and painful but over quickly! As it turned out the heavens opened, the course was twisty and turny and slippy so I managed to get round in a slightly pedestrian 4.41 (around 10 seconds slower than my PB time). However, this was still good for 11th overall from almost 2,500 and 1st in age group.
