Sporting´s female team 2nd at Arronche…

We finished 2nd at the first stage of the National Duathlon championship, which was very good!

Arronche

As per my individual results. Im not quite happy with the start of this season. I knew that the competition was strong and i also knew that the first run would be crucial…

Woke up with a sore throat saturday morning and was even doubting if i would stand on the start line. However, i decided to go and i made a good choice. The throat got better during the trip and didnt affect me during the race…

The first run was terrible. The girls started of in a very hard pace and i tried to follow. I didnt manage and lost the first pack. My running is simply not on their level…

As we started 3 min after the boys we were not allowed to ride on their wheels. I came into the first transition alone and did the bike (20km) all by myself. Was doing my outmost to catch the first pack that was 45 seconds ahead of me, but i didnt manage. I passed two girls on the bike and I tried to make them work with me. Its easier if your a small group working together on the bike. They didnt manage to keep my pace and i was on my own again trying to catch the pack…

During the second run i was feeling a bit better, but it was impossible improve any positions. Finished 7th overall and 4th senior. My team mate Liliana did a good race and finished 3rd. I came in as second counting for the team and my friend Catarina closed the team.
