Being a member of the Marlborough & District (MAD) Tri club, the Marlborough Triathlon is my home race and thus one I try not to miss. But it seems to be becoming a trend that the build up to the race is less than smooth!

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.
