This early season duathlon was the perfect way to blast the winter cobwebs away and see where I was at following recent training. I chose to do the Sprint distance race which consisted of a 5k run, 20k bike and 5k run, all in the beautiful grounds of Althorp. The race had initially been scheduled for the 16th February and then postponed due to water logging so it felt like it had been on my mind since forever!!! It was also an ITU and ETU qualifying race so the standard was pretty high to say the least!!
