Last Triathlon of the Season

it's two days until warwickshire triathlon, and i'm feeling a little strange. not nervous in a 'what the hell do i do' kind of way, but more in a 'i really want to do well' kind of way. haven't felt like this before. strange.

recovery from last weekend's efforts have been good, a little tight in the hamstring but nothing to write home about. i do have some great looking stats from the race, though, which i'm pretty excited about.

ok so i was in the top 13% of all women. not bad!

that breaks down to;

top 8% in swimming
top 8% in cycling
and the bottom 51% of running

almost laughable, i know, my running stats are still quite funny really. however ridiculous they might be, it's actually my best percentage yet for running. usually i'm even further down the field! so there's some improvement, albeit slow.

so my aim this sunday of getting a place is going to be challenging. i'm going to have to cycle like the wind and run like i can actually run. but my fingers (and toes) are crossed.

last time i made it to 6th place, but there was a good jump time-wise up to 3rd. i've worked hard since May, will it be enough?

race reporting pending!
