Day 3

We start at a popular touristy cave. Initially we we told to bring the head torches for the 2km run through the caves, but then Yang told us on briefing "Don't worry abou the lamps, we will turn on the lights for you!". Made is laugh, looked like everything is so easy can be done in China: "We will pave the roads for you", "We will turn on the weather for you" and so on...

IronMan strikes back!



I haven’t done an Ironman events since 2015 and started to feel like a I need a new challenge. I had to opt out for relatively local race and it was perfect option for Ironman Wales, thanks for the tips from Claire&David, my fellow kiwis triathlete buddies. I couldn’t make my mind easily – 8 weeks is a very short notice period for signing up to a full IronMan event and I knew I would be able to get a new PB on such a demanding course, but the curiosity and desire for a new challenge overweighed the other factors.


I was told legends of great support of people of Pembrokeshire but a real life experience is better than any words. The atmosphere started building up days before the event and was giving me the goose bumps. That pre-start adrenaline rush is what I like about such an epic event! The starting line-up was around 2000 athletes with 1700 from GB with 4 kiwis and 2 Russians. I managed to find a new friend Pavel from Belorus/Poland – he was driving from Poland and I was happy to jump in his car to get Tenby a bit ahead of my family.









The town is buzzying!

Day 2 is  the "queen" stage of the race, with the most hours in kilometres racing.
We had to use the GPS for navigation and not the red ribbons like we did the other days. I had a real drama trying to upload the track provide by organisers to my old GPSMap 72C. After a fair dose of tambourine banging, dancing and singing to the IT gods I finally managed to get the track on. Some teams were using just their Garmin 920XT to navigate off the watches. Most of the turns were marked with red arrows and you barely needed the GPS (may 2-3 turns overall)

This time, we rode on the bus for almost an hour to the start line. It was near a dam in a scenic place. Also, the toilets were world class - my first time in China races! They had plastic bags as containers for the waste which you had to "flash" by rolling the plastic bag with a foot handle -  I think Reta forgot to "flash" :)

For my third race in China I managed to get a hold off a pure kiwi team, all of them keen multi-sporters but it was the first experience for them.

A bit bored with all the multi-sport races recently (kayak, mtb, run, kayak, mtb ,run) I wanted to challenge myself a bit and do something which I haven't done before. I was thinking abut getting an ultra trail run ago and the upcoming inaugural Wellington Ultra Urban 2K was perfectly timed (2K stands for over 2000 m of climbing)! The best part was that the flat\paved sections were minimal and following the magestic(al) Wellington trails around the city, the trails which are mostly familiar to me as my trainig ground.
