As events are slowly starting up I thought I’d do a thread for smaller races that might not be covered in other threads like Ultra’s, TT’s, IMUK, Sub 3 marathon. Maybe so we can share any we might be doing?
If nothing else we might be able to share new excuses for poor performances
I’ll start the sandbagging, erm I mean thread off.
Got a standard distance Duathlon on Sunday 10K/40K/5K at Croft motor circuit on Sunday, it’s actually a national champs race I think and there’s also a sprint race that is a qualifier, it was draft legal but got changed due to the rules. (if you’ve heard of Scotch Corner this is about 5 miles away).
My early excuses for a poor performance are fairly obvious, the longest I’ve ran since about November is 10K, slowly, I’ll be on my road bike, I’m planning on doing some form of training tomorrow and probably on Saturday as well. And it’s unlikely to be warm, but the forecast is for it to be dry and not too windy.
But I’m looking forward to having a race number on again, it will be interesting to see how far back I am in the M50 cat and I’ll have a rough idea how much I can gain overall with some consistent training.
Anyone else got anything coming up?
