Cheltenham Triathlon Club
For experienced and aspiring triathletes


Last year I completed the Shakespeare Marathon in 3:32:09. I crossed the line feeling absolutely exhausted and thought I wouldn’t run marathons again. From about 18 miles it seemed like hell with no energy. I think my mistake was not eating enough and going off too fast. This I found correct after studying my Garmin data and I had second thoughts and wanted to get under 3:30.

A year on and I entered the Shakespeare Marathon again. Great conditions and a well organised event. Probably the best I have ever ran. I tapered the week before (never bothered usually), I tried to run a constant pace which was so hard as I wanted to run faster in the earlier miles and I took loads of food on board.

My reward was a PB of 3:28:24 beating my previous of 3:32:09
