Vacation is over

Vacation is over and its time to get back to work preparing the last races of this season.

Its been really good having some time off spending the days on the beach. I dont remember last time i had vacation from work and triathlon at the same time and could enjoy the summer on the beach.

I started to train slowly last week and have already raced once. It was a 30km (5 laps) bike race, flat out from the beginning. I got really surprised how well i felt and managed to stay with the front pack till the end of the 4th lap where i lost them on a hill. To mention is that the girls race with boys, so the speed is quite high from the beginning. I just lost against the national champion and professional cyclist Daniela Reis.

Before the start…

This weekend ill race Saturday and Sunday. I want to gain more experience in cycling which is my strongest segment in triathlon.
