Urgh Health & Safety cancelled the Winter Windsor Half literally as everyone arrived because so many of this morning’s duathletes succumbed to hypothermia in the snowy conditions! ❄️ So I stepped down to do the 10k swim, I mean run, instead ☔️ At least the silver lining to the big, fat thundercloud was that I finally got an official pb 😬 #defrostme #10k #DorneyLake #runner #running #instarunners #NikePlus #Nikerunning

More of a steeplechase than a run. But still took nearly 3 minutes off my PB!! The phrase "wet dog" springs to mind. Someone told me my next race would be a PB and they were right! #personalbest #pb #10km #marathontraining #halfmarathontraining #runforrestrun #etondorney #swj #proud #wetdog

Results just in from @vestarowing big day out @dorneylake... Telemetry didn’t stick to the wet boats 👀 so we entertained ourselves with some pieces against the girls

My first half marathon didn’t go quiet as planned. Prepped up, pumped up, arrived in Windsor to be told that it’s cancelled due to awful weather conditions and risk of hypothermia. Happy days. 😔

Well that was an experience!! A whopping 50% DNF in today’s standard distance duathlon, myself included. For the first time I made the decision to withdraw as it would have been stupid to carry on given it was SNOWING and I was in the wrong gear for the weather. I was good for the 2C temps but hands and feet got saturated and so cold with the wind chill, apparently -4C, even my energy bars froze! On the plus side fitness is good, the initial 10K run was on target but today my gear was only good for Sprint distance not Standard. Racing is not all about PBs and glory, sometimes it’s DNF and learning 🤔

Finished !! 🏅❄️ Non stop rain + snow, and 0 degrees made things pretty tough! Finished in 1:33:54, 16th in my age group and 44th overall out of 200+ competitors. Don’t know what my individual splits were as @nikitadriver and I were holding our own 500m sprint to the car + warmth!
Thanks to everyone for support leading up to today, and the @f3events team, especially to @nikitadriver for standing in the cold to cheer me on and get the photos you see, glad to get the first one out of the way 🎉🏃🏻🚴🏽‍♂️🏃🏻! #duathlon #windsor #runwithian
