In all the craziness of studying nursing and recently with assignments and exams plus work, eating literally anything and everything and little training, I kind of missed being able to train.
I mean I could have fit it in, and I did do bits and pieces but if I had raced my goal race this year which was forster 70.3, I think I would have lost the plot. I would have been a zombie, literally working, training, studying and sleeping. Hence changing my goals.
As above, I’ve been super busy. I’ve made the decision that I won’t be doing Triathlon for the current season due to limited time to train for three sports- four if you count transition.
So instead of triathlon this season, i done something totally CRAZY-
Yup. I signed up for UTA50. That’s 50KM trail running through the amazing blue mountains of NSW with some crazy elevation.
I honestly have done no formal training since UTA22 this year. And I’ll still stand by my word that it was the hardest race I’ve ever done- I was almost physically spent- with the worst cramps in my legs I’ve ever experienced within metres of the finish.
Im hoping to get some base training in this year (somehow fit it in with placement). From December should see me with slightly more time to fit everything in.
Heres to another crazy journey and not pooping my pants along the way! 👌🏼
