I thought I'd do 1000 m, as the event is 750 m, but is in cold water, which I expect to feel much harder.
We would do much better as a team if Laura was allowed to do the swim part, but she is not old enough to compete, so it will have to be me...
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.
