Jailbreak Triathlon DONE… 100% finish!

Today was an incredibly motivating day for all the Embark triathetes. We had 100% finishing the race! It was really great to see all the red and black of the athletes swimming and biking and running, most of them smiling. The Jailbreak triathlon is a 1.1km swim/44km bike/12km run. Its half the distance of the half ironman, so the athletes will have a good idea of where they are in their training at this stage. We have one more big block of training, and now the Embarkers will know what to focus more on.

As always, we have the inter-embark competition (Town Group vs Northern Suburbs Group), and this week the Town Group got the victory thanks to Ryan Jossel. The Northern suburbs group had won both the Clanwilliam Tri (Phillip Le Roux) and the Slanghoek Tri (Eugene Lindeque). So now its all to play for at the finale of 70.3 Half Ironman! Hopefully coach Dave is prepping his athletes for the final show down, i know i am! But now its rest week for all the athletes, so enjoy the time off, rest well, lets get stronger and rebuild for the final 6 weeks of training! 🙂
