Mallorca 70.3

I finished 8th, have no times myself unfortunately. Seems that because i was a reserve athlete or late entry they didn’t register my timing chip. I was called out during the race but nothing shows up in the results.

I led out the swim, felt very comfortable and sat on Sylvan Sudries feet for the first 950m, not sure how but i found myself on the front of the swim so just swam at my pace not getting caught up in the moment. Transition was swift and was out on to the bike first. A small group came together with about 8 of us. Starting the climb the big riders on the front pushed the pace splitting the pack and i was on the back at the time so missed out on going with them but caught a small group in front of me that went with the initial break but then got dropped. The descent was fast and technical and we stayed together until the end. My legs didn´t feel amazing towards the end of the bike so wasn´t too sure how i would go on the run. The first 2 laps of the run i actually felt quite good and caught a number of runners in front of me pushing myself up to 7th. The last lap was tough for me, the pace from early on in the run caught up and with the heat things started to slow down quite quickly. I eventually got overtaken by Faris and he put some time in to me over the last lap. A little frustrating for me but its still very early on in the middle distance career so i have plenty of time to get the running distance in to my legs. I was aiming for another top 10 so 8th was not too bad. Back home to Jersey now before Leysin next week.
