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.

So, if you read my race report on Dambuster at the weekend, you might remember me lambasting my rack neighbour for dumping his wetsuit on my run kit, soaking my shoes and causing me to burst a blister on my left foot.   Well, turns out it might not have been entirely his fault - although he's still an idiot for dumping his wetsuit on top of my kit!

It’s difficult to know where to start with this particular report.  I’m not sure how or when coach Mark Shepherd and I made the decision, but since the turn of the year the Dambuster Triathlon has somehow been my big ‘A’ race of the year.   I guess the reason for this was simply that it was my last chance to qualify for Beijing and the Age Group world champs.

Nothing terribly exciting to report this week, except that I am now less than two weeks away from my first triathlon of the year - the Eton half-distance, which is a qualifier for the ITU World Age Group Sprint Triathlon Championships in Beijing.

It seems to have come around faster than I expected.  Come Thursday evening, coach Mark Shepherd, Rachael Elliott and I will be cramming three bikes (and God knows how many wheels), three bodies and minimal luggage into the beast that is the Orange Wonder (actually a Fiat Qubo - what Mark would describe as a 'proper' duathlete's car) and setting off down the M4 towards Fishguard.
