Best team

I’m not quite sure that I’m happy with my race. The podium was decided on the run and if i had done the same run split as i did last year i would have comet 2nd or 3rd overall.

The swim was hard. The sea was rough and i never got any good rhythm. I was out of the water about a minute behind the first girls. Luckily i left the water with some strong cyclist and i knew the bike was going to be fast.

Did the best bike split of all girls thanks to the guys pushing my group. With some good tail wind on our back we were riding very fast and caught the first girls after 10km. At this point i knew it was going to be decided on the run.

I took a awful lot of time in the transition park and i lost some important time there. The run wasn’t good at all. The first lap was slow and when my legs finally started to cooperate my breathing became constrained and i suffered a lot.

I’m very proud of my team mate Liliana who won the race. She did a fantastic race. Vera Vilaça (the Portuguese girl that lives in Sweden) did 3rd. Well done girl!

I just feel very worried at this point. My body is not ok and im not quite sure what it is. The psychological impact doesn’t help either i guess. I have to find some strength somewhere and hang on for another two weeks or so…
