I did an interview for Yorkshire regional TV news today…I’ll upload the clip when they send it to me.
Last week, I sent out a news release about the Deca Ironman and ITV Yorkshire got back to me wanting to cover the story for Calendar News.
Friday lunch time was spent filming in Roundhay Park followed by a live studio interview later that afternoon.
They’re going to send me the DVD so I’ll upload it soon.
Beginning to taper my training before next Friday. All my big blocks of back-to-back training are complete and there’s no point cramming sessions. I won’t get any fitter and I’ll only risk injury.
I’ll be driving up to Leeds to visit family and friends this weekend.
The Deca run course is picturesque but 26 laps per day (260 laps for the 10 day duration of the event) may just make this an interesting mental challenge as well.
Given the size of the grounds in which the event is taking place, I’m a bit surprised that a one mile lap was used. However, with it being a small event (in participant and spectator numbers) it will keep the event tight and support close.
My initial thoughts having just run around the one mile loop:
The course is not without its dangers too, which should make things interesting…
As well as the wildlife, there are other obstacles…not quite so large…
And last, but by no means least…
