Update from Jersey

Last few weeks since my last race down the south of France have been pretty casual. Just the usual really, training and a few local races.

Last weekend was the first time in god knows how many years that I raced in  a swimming competition. The Inter insular is an annual event with the top Jersey swimmers racing against the best from Guernsey. Its a sort of scottish/english rivalry whilst racing but once the racing is over it is back to being friends. Our senior boys team ’16 & over’ was a little depleted as they are all away at uni at the moment so the ‘old boys’ were called in. I didn’t win any of my races but i wasn’t last so quite pleased with that.

The following day it was the Jersey Marathon and this year i was racing for a friends relay team. The team again were a little depleted with injuries so we had to draft a few in at the last moment but we finished second overall. I had to chase down 5 minutes 45 to catch the team in front. Ran pretty well if i don’t say so myself but unfortunately we just over a minute down going on to the next leg and we lost further time from then on. Was an awesome day, hottest day on record so that was a nice surprise!

This last week training has been going really well, most definitely in the best shape I have ever been in so things are looking good.

Hopefully heading abroad soon to where ever Brett will be so will keep you updated on that.
