Two weeks of constant triathlons are complete. Fourteen days have flown by although I refrain from thinking about what is left.
Today was further improvement and the run time was back to 50 minutes. It feels like the routine has returned but I am far from complacent. The past three days have taught me to be very wary, ease my way into each leg and keep focused on the end goal.
This is a challenge to manage my body through continuous days of exertion without a break to recover, so injury avoidance has to be the priority, despite the instinct to get the best time possible.
I hope today was a perfect example of how I can do that but keep the efforts as ‘honest’ as I possibly can.
Here are my times for each leg:
I am doing this challenge to pay tribute to fallen police officers and staff. On November 13 the following made the ultimate sacrifice to protect the rest of us:
1920 – Police Constable Charles Buntrock – Royal Irish Constabulary
1891 – Police Constable William Edwards – Glamorganshire County Constabulary
1893 – Police Constable James Gordon – St Helens County Borough Police
1920 – Police Constable Patrick Mackessy – Royal Irish Constabulary
1993 – Detective Constable Thomas Need – Metropolitan Police
1920 – Police Constable Jeremiah O’Leary – Royal Irish Constabulary
1943 – Police Constable James Phillips – Royal Ulster Constabulary, GC
1904 – Police Constable Leonard Russell – Metropolitan Police
1870 – Police Constable William Swanson – Edinburgh City Police
1940 – Special Constable Clifford Tilberry – Metropolitan Police
1971 – Police Constable Barbara Wilkinson – Lancashire Constabulary
Please support my efforts to ensure there is a fitting tribute to them and the constant bravery of those who continue to keep us safe.
