It's just gone half six on the morning of the race, I'm super excited, but I'm obviously quite nervous too. It's nervous in a different way from normal because I'm usually gunning it for the podium or to beat the other athletes. But, this is really different. This is almost like I'm scared what I'm about to do to myself because I'm not very good at holding back. I'm not massively prepared and fit, so I'm actually slightly nervous I'm about to blow up on this...

I've just arrived in Malta ahead of my first ever XTERRA triathlon, an off-road triathlon, and actually my first race since retiring from being a professional triathlete. I've kind of enjoyed myself since retiring so this is off the back of pretty little training actually. And apparently, I've thrown myself into the deep end because this is one of the toughest XTERRA courses on the circuit. We're out here for week of filming ahead of the race, so probably not the most ideal prep, but I'm really excited to race my first ever XTERRA. Everyone tells me how fun they are so I can't wait to get stuck in. We are good to go - XTERRA Malta, here I come... 🏆
