Basildon Aquathon - 6th April

Postby vernaburgess » Mon Apr 07, 2014 10:43 am

I had a pleasant day in Basildson Sports Village yesterday for the Basildon Aquathon. Great venue with fab pool and adjacent park excellent for an off road challenging run.
This was 400m/5k swim/run and the 8 lane pool meant a snake swim was possible - up and down each lane from one side of the pool to the other means 16 lengths done and no counting required! We set off at 20 secs intervals and generally had clear water the whole way. Then it was out for a run round the park - this was hilly and boggy but I passed people all the way round and knew I was running well. I finished only 10 secs behind the female winner on run time - shame about the 3 min I was slower on the swim !!
I finished 54/136 overall, 9/47 female. Picked up 3rd FV40. Stephen was along for the ride too - finished 4th overall.
