It’s now 17 months post Op., and I’m back !!! on the “horse” and doing OK.
I had my first Tri in 20 months, Olympic Distance and survived well. It’s been a longer slow road to recovery, but it sure has paid dividends. THANKS PAT !!
My race went OK and was happy with the Swim and Bike, but found the Run a “bit off the pace”. Approx., at the 05:00pkm pace. This is to be expected, and like all triathletes, expect to fly in the first race, but it doesn’t happen like that. Was great to be able to ride in the Aero position for the 40km and not have any issues at all. I will do another Standard Distance Olympic Tri, plus a Sprint Distance as well, for our 2015/2016 Racing year. A couple of local small races here in my hometown to boot as well, and that will see me for this race season.
To my fellow Tri boys/athletes , MPH, petemeads,Woodstock Hippie, Matt Jersey, and others, your encouragement and support is brilliant and helps to “fire me up”. All the Best to you in your recovery and racing. Live the Dream, and Just Do It.
