In the land of 1000 mounts

Tuesday, June 7th, 2011

I had to leave our team camp in Leysin for 4 days because I had a race in Germany: the Half-Challenge Kraichgau. The way towards this area took me almost 9hours! Laika and me got into a really big traffic jam which lasted 2,5hours and we had no air condition in the car which turned it into a very nice sauna;-)

This was on Friday and the race was on Sunday… all in all I have to be satisfied with the result. I could close the big gap between me and the first swimmers who gave me 4min! Then on the bike I put the turbo on and hammered over the course. At the end I had the fastest bike split and was 2nd in T2, only 10s behind Yvonne van Vlerken. But my legs said that I did too much on the bike and they had to struggle and I lost my 2nd position. On the last 10kms I felt much better but then all the others had run away:-( So I finished 4th – and it was a very exciting race because all first 4 women finished within 2,5min! And when I look on my times it is a step forward and we look confidently towards the Ironman in Frankfurt…

Tomorrow I go back to Leysin. Meanwhile I stay with my husband and dog Laika one more day in Germany before he has to go back to work. You’ll hear news from Leysin! Cheers Diana
