August was a tough month for me. Everything was going well with training when I picked up my hip injury at the end of July. July was supposed to be about going to Vichy and completing my first half Ironman but the impact of a slight hip injury and the recurrence of referral pains in ITB and then hamstring meant I decided to pull Vichy and focus on Weymouth. It was a big decision and I think it was the right one. The niggles continue to plague me but I managed to maintain a consistent month of training. I’m hoping that the next three weeks are focused and strong leading into Bournemouth Triathlon next weekend and Weymouth two weeks later! Nervous for Weymouth but looking forward to Bournemouth!
