1st Race of 2012

TriMadMan45by TriMadMan45Mar 2nd 2012
Its that time again when race seasons starts and you have to queue up for an hour before the start for a Portaloo just in case you need before the gun goes off. I have the Lasswade-10 on Sunday afternoon which is a 10 mile race over 'undulating' roads. There are a few killer hills - maximum 16% - near the start and then a long slow hill about half way to the highest point of the race and then back to the start via wee bit of off road running. I have taken part for a few years and really enjoy the post event buffet with home-made cakes and sandwiches. My swim / run coach is doing it again this year and has stated that he will beat me - well he has every other year so why should this be any different. I am fitter and faster than I have ever been and feeling hopeful of a sub 65 minute time depending on the weather and how I feel after swim and running with the aforementioned coach - will he take it easy knowing that I am racing him - I donĀ't think so!! Away to pack in more carbs than I can stomach in anticipation of a good time and hopefully beat the coach.
