Races coming up!

Things are hotting up

Its that time of year now when the first triathlons are getting underway. It may be that your goal feels like a long way off, but things start to build momentum now, and before you know it, you will be on the starting line of your main event. This is why its important to race other events, so that you can put into practice all the things you need to remember on race day. One of my mantras is “through my race I learn”, and every time I compete there is something to take away, there are always some positives and some things that could be done better. It helps to have a plan, but also to make sure that you stick to it as far as possible. Last weekend I was guilty of having a plan but neglecting to implement parts of it on race day (windproof, nutrition etc)

Doesn't matter how good your plan is if you forget to stick to it!

After an event it is a good idea to reflect and look back at things objectively so that (hopefully) you can do better next time. This is what I have tried to do in my race report for Slateman, which you can read here. Maybe you can learn from my mistakes!
