A good race weekend

Two races, two podiums, two silver medals…

As i was coming from a very intense training week i did not quite know how i would respond to a weekend with two races and workouts.

I was pretty nervous before Saturday’s time trial. Somehow i felt some responsibility of wearing the National Champion Jersey (all eyes on me). Saturday morning i did a 40km bike workout. My legs were feeling quite sore and the wind had started to pump. The course wasn’t technical and most parts were flat, a course that fits me.

The races started at 2:30 pm and we started with one minute interval. Behind me i had the professional cyclist Daniela Reis, who ended up winning the time trial.

3…2…1 and Larsson was off!


out on the course

The wind was very strong and i was fighting like a little animal out there. I really gave everything i had for 23km. Daniela passed me on the second part of the course. It was actually good that she did. It gave me an extra kick and i maintained the distance till the end. Super satisfied with my 2nd place.


The podium

On Sunday it was time to race again, but this time a 20km run race from Cascais to Lisbon. Before the race we had a 40km bike ride on the schedule…

I don’t know how i managed to run those 20km in head wind, i really don’t.

But it seems like i did manage to run the 20km and i came 2nd overall. The time wasn’t that good, but that doesn’t really matter to me. The goal was to reach the finish line.

The podium

To summarize, a very positive racing weekend!

Sunday afternoon ended with a nice photo shoot…pictures coming soon!
