I competed in my third tri of the year this weekend with very little training due to an all inclusive holiday 2 week before the event. Due to this on returning I decided to throw myself into a set of basic training to make sure I could do the distances which for the first time in a while didn’t result in me injuring myself on the lead up to the event.
I didn’t realise until reading the race notes that it was an afternoon event and for the first time in the lakes it was hot a sunny so I was not looking forward to the event. I started in the lake with two loops to complete. For some reason I managed to confuse myself and try to go the wrong way round the loop until I ran into everyone around me.
