Early morning walk around Carsington Reservoir…then breakfast


Me and Heather both had a day off work on Friday (21/1/11) and decided to take Poppy around Carsington Reservoir. 


The weather was perfect, a little frosty and it was very quiet. To finish I had to try the Full English all of which was organic and locally produced.

This years events

I really enjoyed the Evil Sheriff Duathalon (see previous post) so this year I’ve signed up for some serious events.

What is triathlon?
Triathlon is a multi-discipline event where people compete against the clock and each other. Swimming, cycling and running with no break except for the transition (this is a quick pit stop to change for the next discipline).

Foremarke Hall is located to the south of Derby, and easily reached from both the M6 and M1 using the A50.

The swim
The swim will be 16 lengths in the 25 metre pool.
