Race report from Henrietta Bolton-Carter, successfully completing the very tough Helvellyn Tri course in 5:05 on Sunday:
If it hadn’t been for the race, it was a great weekend in the Lakes!
I enjoyed the swim once I’d managed to find a bit of clear water, as conditions were great, my bike was crap and very demoralising.
I also struggle with the amount of traffic on those roads, too used to our empty ones! Luckily I redeemed myself on the run and loved that.
Hobbling with sore legs and feet now so resting up for week and drinking too much wine, wonderful.
