Good news from OAC’s Howard Jeffrey:
Last year I started to swim and bike to get stronger for running and avoid all the niggles that come with regular racing.
I did a few Triathlons and I have had to go through all the new niggles that come with swimming and biking (I should have known!) and can add them to the still present running ones. I have not yet become faster at running although I do feel stronger.
What was unexpected was I have qualified for Team GB in the Triathlon Age-Group European Standard Distance Championships in Turkey next year. Just found out today as was not notified earlier.
Don’t ask me how I did it as there were some criteria – apart from ticking the box and paying the registration fee, which I did at every opportunity – that I have unbelievably satisfied.
Move over Alistair and Jonny…!
