Less than one week to go

A hard week of training is coming to its end. I didn’t have much time to recover from my previous race to prepare the European Cup. I have been feeling quite well despite the load. I have been trying to focus as much as possible during the swim workouts, gaining as much confidence i can. The swim is always a stressful moment for me and i don´t want to waste energy on stress next Saturday…

Today we ended a hard training week with a 50 km bike ride with series and a race Corrida da Mulher. A 5km run in Lisbon, supporting woman with breast cancer. It was a very competitive race as the 1st girl won 2 tickets to New York. As usual, i started off a bit too hard and died towards the end. Did 9th place among 10 000 girls, not that bad. My team mate Liliana did 4th after a very fast run over the 5km course.
