Past week I got last minute invitation for a race on Guadeloupe islands in early March. I was searching for a race in March as a preparation for Ironman South Africa and visiting Caribbean itself sounds attractive enough. However, the decision was not so easy. Injury that bothered me in Dubai was still there and I wasn’t sure if it makes sense to even think about the race before I’m back to complete health.
After consulting my coach I decided to confirm my participation in hopes that the leg will be fine by then. Prospect of going to Caribbean must have helped the healing process as the situation improved dramatically over the past week. I can almost say the injury is a thing of a past. With injury situation improving, my expectations are rising and I think I won’t be just a tourist there ;).
The race is on March 5th and it’s 1,9 – 90 – 21 km format.
