I also managed to complete a wish in the run up to Austria when I got to pull on a GB Trisuit.
So what's next?
I honestly don't know.
I have a few sprint triathlons coming up over the next few months but as for the longer term goals, I haven't made any final decisions yet.
Given the fact that races for next year are already starting to open, I need to be quick and make some decisions. I'm 99% decided that I won't be completing any Iron distance triathlons in 2015.
The long training sessions alone are so boring and time consuming that they quickly absorb a weekend. It is only this weekend when I have nothing planned that I fully realised how little time I have been spending with my wife.
I am not ruling them out in the future though.
I think I need to learn how to truly suffer at shorter distances before I embrace the suck at iron distance.
As for the races that are coming up my calendar is quite full.
16th July - Doncaster 5k (if my knee is up to it)
20th July - Hatfield Sprint (the Hatfield in Doncaster not near London)
3rd August - London Triathlon Sprint
16th August - Swim With Other Teams Championships
23rd August - National Club Relay Championships
14th September - Leeds Triathlon Relay (swim)
21st September - Brigg Sprint
5th October - Drax Triathlon
I'm really looking forward to going shorter over the coming months and I think I will continue this vain into next year.
I am also going to make a concentrated effort to lose some weight. The quickest way for me to get quicker on the bike and run is if I weigh less. It's simple physics.
So next year will mainly be spent doing sprints
Thanks for reading,
After speaking with Dave Tune aka #runboss I have decided not to pursue any 70.3 races next year and will concentrate solely on sprint distance racing. Who knows I may even push the boat out with the odd Olympic distance.
