DambusterHaving visited Rutland Water three times in 2010 for the Duathlon, Triathlon and Vitruvian in a support capacity, Saturday saw me make my competitive debut at this iconic British multisport venue. 

For me, entry to the Dambuster Duathlon was primarily an exercise of course familiarisation ahead of the Triathlon later this year.  With running my weakest discipline, I was never going to challenge the front-runners (well, not this year, anyway!) but I had personal goals for each leg that would show whether or not I am making progress in training.

Unlike all three visits last year, which were invariably cold and wet, the weather conditions on Saturday were near-ideal. The clear frosty start did lead to a clothing dilemma (a lot of people later admitted to over-dressing) but it turned into a beautiful morning.

Just five days to go till the first 'proper' race of 2011 - the Dambuster Duathlon at Rutland Water.  I've been to the venue three times already in 2010, but never actually raced it myself so this is kind of familiar-yet-new territory to me.
