This weekend starting as of Friday, will be an action packed weekend. Why, well this Friday is my birthday and I am turning 37. I used to be concerned about what it was going to be like venturing close to the 40's but now I realise I am exactly where I want to be in my life. I am fit, happy, content at last and look forward to embracing this new year in my life with much excitement and fervour.

I am also excited because on Saturday-Kurtis, my twin son is going to take part in his first Enticer Triathlon.
I will be taking part in the event with him so we can both enjoy this awesome day. It is going to be an early start - Race starts at 7am SHARP, so not sure how this teenager will cope opening his eyes at about 5. This will definitely be a tester. I look forward to seeing his expression as he tackles his first Triathlon and the wonderful sense of accomplishment he gets as he see's that he is capable of tackling anything that comes his way - not just during the race but during his life.

Then on Sunday I tackle the TriShave Women's Sprint Triathlon. I am excited and nervous all rolled into one. I have a goal that I wish to achieve in this race, and that is to knock off 2 mins. The last Sprint Tri I did with TriShave I did 1hr 18min. I think I can do this but you just never want to get your hopes up. I am feeling much more confident in my cycling and my running ability but still never want to "count my chicken's before they hatch".

So with my recovery week underway, I look forward to resting up as much as I can so I can give it my all this Sunday. What do you guys have planned for the weekend?

Your hard work will be rewarded.
