After taking a break from all triathlon racing in 2014, I learned a few things:
1. I need the target of races to maintain discipline.
2. Without discipline, my diet and nutrition lapses greatly.
3. I have no motivation to train without a race target.
4. Air pollution is still a major obstacle.
For 2015, I’ve registered for Feb 22 race in Subic Bay – an early season 70.3 which set me up well for a good season in 2012. Then a full calendar of OD races in China and possibly UK. To finish the season the Laguna Phuket Tri – an extended OD.
Looking forward to it. Been off all alcohol for three weeks plus, diet has tightened up and training has increased. The power of a target.
