Its been a real mixed season for me. I went to the World Duathlon championships to compete with the paraduathletes in the T6 (visually impaired) category. Despite being faster than last year when I came 3rd, in 2012 I came 4th. It was disappointing as I was in first place coming out of the first run and into the bike section. It was my bike which let me down so I know what to do over the Winter. A rigorous bike training regime is on the cards for Winter training.
However, my running is going from strength to strength. I just completed the Chester full marathon yesterday and knocked off a whole 34 minutes off my PB. I finished in 3 hours 7 minutes and 59 seconds. I felt strong throughout the race and really enjoyed the experience. Naturally I am a little sore today but nothing like last year when I did the London marathon in 3 hours 42 and felt absolutely wrecked.
Now for a well earnt rest for a few weeks before Winter training starts.
