I keep saying to myself: I'm going to back off racing for a bit, then something comes up and I find myself aiming at another race or 4!!!
Yes there are 4 races I would like to do well in, in the next couple of months, so I had better get the training right or not one of them will come off...
- 1st up is WP Cross Country Champ. 8km 40+ men... I would love a 3rd place, but I'm not fast enough for that so it will depend on who turns up for the race in 2 weeks time.
- Next up is a biggy 30km Jonkershoek Mountain Extreme (this one should be fun)
- Now we move on to the end of September for the Otter Trail. This is the most amazing 5 day hiking trail that we race over one day!!! About 42km in all, we"ll see what Mr. Garmin calls it this year.
- That makes 3 races, now the 4th I haven't entered, but I think I might have to pull a couple of strings to get an entry... The race in Question is the crazy Table Mountain race!! Why didn't I enter? Well I am going to Otter 2 weeks later and didn't want to race both races, so why the change of mind? It looks like Salomon international will have a couple of their top athletes in town and I like having my ass kicked!!!!
After all the Coach has spoken!
