I am pushing into my 6th season in Triathlon and my 3rd doing IM distance, this year it is the Outlaw with UK 70.3 and Vitruvian as the build up and end of season main races, but I am finding it hard to really get into the swing of it this year.
I thought I might tap into some of the older, bolder and more experienced out there, did you go through a sort of Tri disillusionment at about this point? I have had a particularly average off season with illness and injury which has meant that training has been down on normal hours and effort but I am back in now and just finding it hard to feel enthused about training and racing this year.
Also if you were to take a step back from Tri for a year, what would be the one event that you would want to do before you took a sabbatical? I have plans next year to mix it up with Comrads and MDS so will drop Tri for 2017!
So two questions:
Did anyone else go through a rough season where nothing felt special?
If you were to recommend one race that you simply had to do before you took a step back what would it be, I am South West based if that helps.
