A short while after Ironman Switzerland, Bella, Charlie and I traveled back to Sands Beach Resort in Lanzarote. Charlie is now doing the morning at school, Bella is coaching all the Tri Activ Lanzarote kids and adults, plus all her online athletes. I am training well. I had a small set back pre Challenge Weymouth with a strained tendon in my knee. But it managed to sort itself out for race day and I was happy enough to come away with 3rd place behind a very strong Joe Skipper and Joel Jameson in 2nd. After ansummer with illness then my knee, I was happy to come away with some decent prize money.

My next race will be Ocean Lava here in Lanzarote, this year it will be 3km, 120km, 30km. And looks to be a great course as always on Lanzarote. After that I have a big goal of a great race at Ironman Cozumel.
Last weekend I did a small Aquathon here in Lanzarote, the Aquahonda, I managed to win, with Brad Ibrahim in 2nd and Bella’s other young athlete Georgia who at 14 won the womens event.
This weekend is the 2.6km swim race from Lanzarote to La Graciosa, I just watched last year and am really looking forward to this great event tomorrow:)
