Rob at the age of 45 and weighing in at 15 stone 95kg a BIG Drinker & SMOKER decided to take up Triathlon, I did not even own a pair of runners, It took me about 2 to 3 years to get into shape, now 80kg of muscles at 69 years of age.

I trained 6 days a weak and raced 3 days weak 2 Tri;s and one bike road race plus gym workout, My interest was in the Olympic distance Triathlon 2km swim, 40km cycle, & 10km run

I competed in the age group 45 to 49 in that age group I came 2nd in the series for the year, Not bad for an over weight 45 years old man BUT it was Bloody hard work! 

I have also done a few long course Tri's 3km swim 80km bike & 22km run they are not much FUN also some half & full Marathons and LONG swim.

 

 

Rob at Shepparton Victoria Triathlon in 1993 approx, I would drive to all the events over Victoria the night before and stay in my trailer, I still use the same bike now it is made of 531 steel tube it's a bit out of date now and like the rider at 69yrs, and I still have the trailer.
