I'll try to keep this one short, just for a change. That's partly for your sake as a reader but also partly because it didn't turn out to be a race that I particularly want to dwell on.

For once, I'm actually a bit lost for where to start this update. I guess the story actually begins back in Auckland last October. As you may recall from my report at the time, I didn't really enjoy the experience. I had a poor swim and run, which led to quite a few changes, including the decision to part company with my then coach (no insult to his capabilities, I just I felt I needed a new approach). I was also a bit disillusioned with the whole Brit Tri Age Group scene.  And, to be honest, I was a bit burned out.

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.

I’ll admit straight away that it would have been much easier NOT to write this report.  No one really wants to read about races that sucked, and so it would have been very tempting to gloss over Sunday’s race.  But in the spirit of honesty and transparency, I thought I’d better do a short write up, even though it’s going to make uncomfortable writing.

With final preparations for the ITU Age Group World champs in Auckland well underway, my coach and I agreed a last little race before I leave would be a good idea. And with Bowood House just a 30-minute drive away, the sprint duathlon fitted the bill nicely.
