Aiming for the top ten in the CCC
The goal for CCC is to put all the training to good work and not waste an opportunity to get into the top ten.
Who turns up on race day and the weather is not something I can control, but how well I go is what is important. Being able to run well on the first climb, whilst staying comfortable, is the aim and then finishing strong. It’s all about finishing strong.
Choosing the right kit this year has been important. Shoes (Salewa Train Lite), socks (Stance Run), Shorts (Adidas or Salomon), the trusty Profeet vest, Poles (Black Diamond or Swix) and a whole other host of tried and tested kit will fit into a Salomon 3l Pack for race day.
It’s all been tested on long runs and fast runs so I won’t be making the same mistake as last year, that’s for sure.
Patience, consistency and dedication
Ultimately it’s all been about three things; Patience, Consistency and dedication to a cause.
Everyone wants a quick solution and immediate results in this day and age, but, as with most things in life, you have to work hard and be patient and the change you want will happen.
There is still a long way to go on my journey, wherever it will end up, but this summer feels like a big step has been taken in the right direction.
We wish Robbie all the best for the race and the rest of the summer.
