The Northampton Classic, another Olympic distance triathlon event was a world age group championship event qualifier. So what does that mean? The big guns were out. I got an 18th in my age group which isn’t too bad for no short distance training, a slight injury (more later) and a ‘big guns’ field. The good news is that I don’t have the quandary of how I find the money to get to Vancouver next year to compete at the world’s!
Only one more triathlon now and the race season ends for me (well triathlon season at least) and that’s a small sprint distance in Roade this Sunday. Not sure how I’ll fare as training hasn’t been focused and the injury is nagging.
