After 5 years of racing for Team Trisports it was a time for a new challenge. I made many friends at the club and was sad once I made my decision to leave.
So why leave ? My choice was made as I wanted to run the herts midweek 10k series over the summer and wanted to train with a group of runners that would push my limits.
Why 10k Series ? This was a great opportunity to get some regular high intensity runs in the week. I wanted to achieve this but running for a second claim team, however, due to the consutitipn I was unable to compete for multiple clubs.
Where now ? I decided to join Fairlands Valley Spartans as this was my local running club in Stevenage. I’ve been made very welcome at the club and had the benefit of some friends and past team mates who were already at the club.
What about Swimming ? Open water is still on my mind but I have joined a swim club and train with a masters group (Monday, Thus (50m), Fri, Sun) at Stevenage Swimming Club as secretary of the club I get to see the development of the club at close quarters.
So now to the future ? My aims this season are my A races. These are Brighton Marathon and Ironman Germany (Frankfurt).
