I’ve found out that I’m doing two races in London. I made the team for the sprint distance on Friday and the Olympic on Sunday. Not quite sure how I’ll manage it (the whole of Saturday in an ice bath??), but as I’m going for the experience and not to set super fast times, I think I’ll get by. Also, as I’ll be racing against the best amateurs in the world (probably some who get a little medical help along the way), my expectations are low. If I don’t get close to beating the guys in small races in north Germany, what chance do I have at the World Champs?
London will be all about having fun and enjoying the experience.
