Of all the multi-sports formats, I have to admit the standard distance duathlon (10km run, 40km bike, 5km run) is probably my least favourite. But then, as I’m sure some saying or another goes – you should do more of what you enjoy least.

And so today, my 2013 preparation continued with the small Kinetic-One standard distance duathlon at the Castle Combe motor racing circuit, organized by DB Max.

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!

MAD Tri teamSo today was my first multisport race of 2011; a good opportunity to test the effectiveness of my Winter base training before we get into speedwork in earnest. Matters were not helped on Friday when something in my back went 'pop!' and I've been subsequently left popping ibuprofen and cocodomol for the last 48 hours. I'm not quite sure what I've done, whether its muscular or a trapped nerve. All I know is that it's bloody painful!

Whatever, it was far from ideal timing and lead me to be in pain before I even started the race.

For once, the weather was bright (if, as always, breezy) at Castle Combe, which made a very welcome change from the usual drizzle regular competitors must have become used to. As my fourth appearance at a Chilly Duathlon, my main goal was to continue the trend of setting a PB each time.
