The final race of the season is upon us and after Saturday I head into a rest period for about four weeks. The 70.3M World Championships is an odd race really, obviously it was great to qualify and a cool location to finish off the season, but I don't go into the race thinking about winning or getting top five etc. I know that the competition is amazingly strong (last years AG winner is now a pro!) and as such I am racing against myself and aiming to set a personal best at the 70.3M distance. The harder I race the higher in the results I will place but I realise that to be vaguely close to the front of my age group I will need to be in the 3hr 55min - 4hr 5min time range. I'm not there!....yet :-) (15 minutes or so to go!)
So the race will be a last hurrah for the 2008 season and give me a good idea of items to work on as I into head into the winter training phase (although I have a pretty good idea already). Hopefully I'll get a PB and not have a meltdown on the run as I did last year.....
The race will be covered live on ironmanlive.com starting at 6:45am on Saturday Nov 8th.
