This workout was a little bit different it was a duathalon at Estnor castle in Hereford.
10 km mud run
20 km mud ride
3 km finisher run
3 hrs 37 mins 28 seconds
This is one of the worst things I have ever done. I have done a duathalon before and I enjoyed it but the duathalon today was horrible.
The first run was great it started out in the fields and quickly got to the landrover tracks. As soon as we got to the muddy tracks the fun started we were running through mud and wading through puddles up to my bollocks. Anyway there was a lot of up and down and we got back to the transition after 1.05 ish.
After a quick change of trainers we were out on the bikes. The first km was the same then we headed out onto the roads through the park for a few kms and that is where the fun ended. We then hit the off road tracks again, it was fucking crazy off the bike and start pushing for the thick end of an hour through. When we finally got back in the saddle, there were some good downhill sections. Unfortunately I couldn’t be arsed to enjoy it.
After 2 hours on the bike back into transition and then back out for for the final run. This was nice little 3k through a bit of a stream. All was good.
I have done it but I don’t know if I am glad that I did.
