Well, I can’t believe that this weekend is finally here!
I entered this race at the beginning of the year with one plan in mind – Finish. After over 2 years away with injuries, I wanted to get back into Triathlon and enter something that I love – Middle Distance. This is the first time that Outlaw has taken place at Holkam Hall and I am really looking forward to it.
Has the training gone well – yes and no. I have remained injury free, so that is a huge YES. No, because, I could have been a little more focused. But I have to be realistic. The goal here is not to break any records, but to enjoy the event – something that I feel is too often missed. I have no doubt that I will at some point get caught up in the moment and go too hard and potentially pay the price, but if I can recognise that I am there, then I can stop it. I just want to finish – injury free.
So to all those who are racing this weekend, or racing in the futrue, I wish you all the best and hope that you achieve your goals – whatever they may be. Remember your race plan and stick to it. It is your race, not anyone elses. Remember to enjoy the moment and after all – it’s only a race!
Stay fit, stay healthy and achieve the unthinkable 🙂
