From Rachel Joyce’s Blog
Pro Triathlete Rachel Joyce returns to racing this year after the birth of her first child. She writes about upcoming her feelings leading in to this weekend’s IRONMAN Boulder race:
Now I am 6 days out from Ironman Boulder. I’m nervous again. Training has been good but again my preparation is different to previous irons-distance preparations. I am drawing confidence from the fact that I can look back at some of my best races and know that my lead ins haven’t always been text book. . .
The key thing is that I believe in the process we have followed. I feel fit; I feel healthy; I feel motivated to race and if my experience of racing has taught me anything it’s that those three things alone are a good platform to be jumping into a race with. So here goes. I’ll report back on the other side of that 140.2 miles!
