Today was a day I had been looking forward to and dreading in equal measure. The first of two opportunities to book my place on the Great Britain Age Group team for the Triathlon World Champs in Auckland later this year.

OK, so you know the story: chest infection, illness, lack of training, work schedule, yada yada yada. No point in going over old ground, but needless to say my preparation for this weekend's race was far from perfect.  ‘Nuff said.

As you may know if you’ve been following my blog (you have my sympathy!), the Chilly Duathlon in November 2009 was my first-ever multisport race. It came on the back of work trip to Australia and New Zealand where I had, for reasons that are still not entirely clear(!), decided it would be ‘fun’ to have a go at triathlon.

As any of you that follow me on Twitter will know, training has been going well lately, especially running. Although barely out of winter base training, and with my focus firmly on the Wokingham Half Marathon in mid-February, I’ve been feeling stronger on the shorter sprints. This has been witnessed by a few challenging runs at the Bristol Parkrun, which have seen my times tumble from 20:14 down to 19:27. It seems to be generally accepted that Bristol is a ‘slow’ course, worth a good 40-60 seconds over a ‘fast’ parkrun course.

Having been ill for a good six weeks since returning from China, my training has been somewhat lacklustre until the last couple of weeks. As such, I wasn’t exactly looking forward to my annual pilgrimage to the November Chilly Duathlon on Sunday!
