I’ve just had a look through the calendar and jotted down the duathlons (and a couple of small, local triathlons) that I’m planning on racing this year. Looks busy! Eight duathlons and a two triathlons, so far. It’s going to be a pretty full-on start to the year with plenty races this winter and coming spring, then a quiet summer, before a handful more races in the autumn. Last year I managed to qualify for the Great Britain age-group duathlon team to race in the 2018 European championships, so the season will culminate with a weekend out in Ibiza to compete in my GBR team kit. Exciting stuff.
