The first race of the year is in two days. The temperature is 12°. Thankfully, this first race has the swim leg in a pool, though there’s a good chance we will all be in wetsuits, because of the cold water.
What happened to spring? It’s like it never even happened. I haven’t had a swim in an outdoor pool yet.
I’m starting to wonder if the triathlon boom in Germany is actually on the way down. It will be interesting to see how the races are this season, how many people are involved and what kinds of times the people do at the front of the pack.
As I’ve been training very little, I’ll be racing very much for fun this year, maybe even racing to get fit. Race reports will follow.
