New Zealand Duathlon Championships.

Seven months ago I decided I wanted to run again. I have not run properly for several years, so it was a challenge.I needed an incentive so thought competing in the New Zealand Duathlon Championships on the 31 August at Taupo would something to aim at. The decision was the easy part but the seven months has gone pretty quickly and here I am not a little terrified at the prospect. Everything has been done,my entry, and motel bookings. The training has not been all that enjoyable and I feel that I needed more time, perhaps a whole year. However I have accomplished what I set out to do and am able to run the five ks. cycle 20 ks. and run 2.5 ks. during training in what I thought a reasonable time for me. Hopefully I will do it a bit faster in the race. I will be in the 85-89 age group. The weatherman has promised rain so I don't know how I am going to dress as it can be pretty cold cycling in the cold wet weather. When I started running I had the advantage of just completing the cycle club racing season so I was otherwise fairly fit.
