The Triathlon Begins

This week saw the start of our family triathlon challenge with a morningĀ  jog and an afternoon swim. This morning we all completed 4 laps of Farsley Recreation Ground, though Sophie may have had a little help from Mummy and Daddy! So this fulfills our running commitment of 5 miles with all of us running a mile each. Samuel wanted to add another half mile as sweeties were promised and Hannah and I completed an extra mile each.

On Wednesday evening, Annabel started us off with the swimming part by completing 40 lengths at Bramley Baths. Their 22.5m (25 Yards) pool put us at 900m on our 2000m total. Today Hannah and I managed 6 lengths of the pool at Armley Leisure Centre bringing in 150m each so we are 1200m down on the 2000m total.

We’d love it if you could sponsor us at, to help motivate us for the rest, especially as I have not started the 250miles cycling yet!
