Jo and Phil Robson took huge amounts of time of their 1 mile swim at Ullswater on 3rd June. Consistent training has paid off for this couple, as Jo took 3 minutes off her 1 mile open water personal best and Phil knocked off a full 5 minutes off his previous 1 mile open water time.
Phil’s time was 28 minutes and is one of the fastest recorded by a West Lancs Tri Club Member.
Sandra and Colin Eastham both gained 1st place in their categories at the Cholmondley Triathlon on 24th June.
Colin won the Men’s Over 50 event by an outstanding 9 minutes. He was also 2nd overall in the all age category, competing against men less than half his age. Colin’s Winter training plan resulted in an 11 minute improvement from this event in 2017.
Sandra claimed 1st place in the Ladies over 50 event, improving her swimming section by a full 20 minutes. A massive improvement by anyone’s standards.
Note: Sandra and Colin celebrated their 27th Wedding Anniversary on Thursday 5th July with a good swim training session at Nye Bevan Pool.
