'Taper'

Through the Lens Photography are supporting The Nomad Trust as our chosen charity. Adam, our lead photographer and keen triathlete is racing in the Outlaw Half triathlon on Sunday 20th May. 1.2 mile swim, 56 mile bike & 13.1 run all hopefully within 6 hours!

We're into the last two weeks of preparation for the Outlaw Half Triathlon and I'm now 'tapering', a technical term for taking it easier now to conserve/build energy & avoid injury.

My last preparation race was this weekend at the Clumber Park Duathlon, a 10km run, 40km bike and another run for 5km. After last week when it was so cold at the Lincoln Triathlon coming off the bike I was struggling to unzip my helmet, this week I got sunburned!!

As well as finalising my plans for the race I'm also making the last push to support The Nomad Trust with sponsorship. If you haven't already sponsored me and are able to do so you can here; https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/awinf1

It's ironic that I seem to be in the right place at the right time for decent race photos!

Race organisers will shortly be providing race details including a spectator's guide. The Outlaw is a spectacular event to see with approximately 1600 athletes swimming, cycling & running and there are some great viewing spots, I'll share the guide as soon as I can.

The race is also a great opportunity to practice your sports/action photography!

I'm racing this year as part of the fantastic 100% Tri team. A fantastic chance to receive the type of professional coaching and support normally only available to sponsored teams and top-flight athletes. If you're interested in taking up triathlon check out 100% Tri here
