Two weeks ago I competed in my first duathlon and came in second. After taking time to look at what I could do better it came down to my transitions.
I focused for two weeks on the running part of the duathlon. I knew if I could get my times down and then spend less time transitioning I should be able to do better. That’s what happened today. I won my group by over two minutes. It came down to both runs being solid and I cut three minutes off my transition.
It feels good to focus on what I could do better and just do it. I’ll probably never get an overall first for an entire race, but today showed me if I compete smart I can win. Maybe that overall first place can happen with a bit more focus!
