About the Event
The event comprises:
- Swim 750 m (in the cold water of Hartlepool Marina!)
- Cycle ~20 km (from Hartlepool Marina to Seaton Carew 3 times)
- Run 5 km (around the Marina)
I did the swim by myself with Benjamin supervising from the shore.
For the Cycle, we used our special tandem - a Hase Pino. I aspire to Benjamin helping with the pedalling, but he rarely does, unless I am trying to stay still and talk to someone!
For the run we used Benjamin's cross country wheelchair - an Advance Mobility Freedom chair.

Learning to Swim 2
Halfway through the session they put a barrier across the bottom of the pool, so we had to try to re-calculate the number of lengths we had to do while exercising. Mental arithmetic is really hard when exercising!
Conclusion is still that I am rubbish at swimming.....I sense a last place coming on!
