I’ve had a couple of easier weeks (hence the lack of training posts)! After pushing myself really quite hard since December, my body needed a bit of a rest! However I’m back to it now with race season coming up pretty quick!
Last nights 70.3 minutes session was a toughy!

👍🏼 A great weekend of spectating, racing and celebrating triathlon in the UAE. Frustrating race outcome - on the first loop out I turned at an aid station and only completed 9km of my run. Key lesson on the importance of being aware out there and taking the time to study the course.
Available now @yascycles.. Introducing the Cloudswift. The first shoe to feature Helion (TM) superfoam. Cushioning without compromise @on_running_me
Benefits include......... Energy return ✅
A fantastic weekend of triathlon that would motivate anyone to want to be part of this amazing community. Starting with volunteering for the @worldgamesad with triathlon being included for the first time and with Micah and Jonah taking out the gold and silver for the UAE!! A great experience to be involved with this event before the @worldgamesad start officially on 14 March.
It was race day for my daughter on Friday when she participated in the Junior Super Sprint Relay with two of her friends and how wonderful to see them crossing the finish line together. It was on to @itumultisport Technical Official duties Friday afternoon to help in transition for the @WTS abudhabi elite races and again on Saturday for the exciting Mixed Relay getting up close to these incredible athletes.
And of course I managed to race an olympic triathlon in amongst all that, ending up second in my new age group! The vibe of the race was fabulous thanks to @yascyclestriteam and @tribellesabudhabi in particular along with the rest of the triathlon community and everyone involved in the organisation of the event. Thank you to @damaninsurance for their continued support and the opportunity to be part of the Daman Challenge - Triathlon program again. Looking forward to doing it all again next year.
@Regrann from @ironman_russ - The beast is back from @ridebikeswales after a good clean, service and a bit of an upgrade...... can anybody tell what that might be!? One last ride tomorrow before she’s packed up ready to fly Sunday for Ironman70.3 Dubai!
