Today I went down to Broxton near Chester to compete in my first race of the time trialling season the Chester Hilly 14mile time trial. The weather conditions were getting worse throughout the day and with me off at 2:56pm, the weather was not looking good. The wind was starting to pick up and there was consistent snow/sleet fall.
40 minutes before my start time I jumped on to my turbo and began my warm up trying to raise my heart rate in the freezing cold weather. 5 minutes to go, off the turbo, quick wheel change to the race wheels and then to the start line.
The race went well passing some very nice bikes on the way. I finished the race in a time of 36 minutes 16seconds which is a 1minute 20second improvement on last years race. This is a great start to my season as it makes me feel very confident that I can put in some good pb’s this season. I finished 2nd in the junior category, but overall position is still unknown- will edit this when I get the results!
As soon as the race finished I had a Herbalife recovery shake, this is a great product to help me recover quicker before next weeks races!.

My next blog will be next weekend as I will be competing in a weekend of racing, on Saturday I will be taking on the challenging Wrekinsport Hilly 18mile TT and then on Sunday I have got a 10mile 2up TT with a club mate. I will definitely be needing my Herbalife Recover shakes after that weekend!
