    Congrats, got my first Olympic in 2 weeks, which doubles up as my first ever triathlon.

    Hope it's better organised than yours was!

    Great report

    Well done for completing the step up to OD with such a good time, looks like its onward and upwards for London

    I did the Norwich Sprint last year (came 4th in Age Group hoorah) and had to prop my bike against the fence but other than that I really enjoyed it (entries all taken when I went to register otherwise would have done it again) and as you point out contrary to popular belief Norfolk does have hills (as I also found out on the Norwich 10K)

    thats a great report, sounds like a cracking race and inspirational to all us dreaming of making it to OD (think i'll get a few more sprints out of the way first though)

    I really enjoyed the distance. Organisational hiccups aside it was a great event. Looking forward to London.
    I was pretty worried about stepping up to OD but I set myself reasonable targets and gave myself a good talking to before the event. I have a habit of putting too much pressure on myself, so this time I made myself promise that no matter what happened I was going to remember to enjoy it and finish smiling.

    Right, I'm off to study swim videos...
