After this weekend I’m pretty sure that I’m back in the race circuit! It was a hard fight over the last weeks and months. I had some really deep downs but at the end with the help of my coaches Jo Spindler and Brett I fought myself back. Yesterday in Austria the Trumer Triathlon showed me and all the people around me that I can run fast again!
I had a solid swim and while we started 5mins behind the man’s field I had to pass so many swimmers like never before in my life! I felt like a very fast swimmer the 1st time in my life;-) Then on the bike I smashed everybody and the men tried to cycle with me. That was the hardest battle of the day for me! In the trainsition area I had a 11mins lead but I didn’t know this. When I finished my 1st loop (5 km) they told me and I thought that I can run just a solid half marathon. And it worked perfectly. At the end I run 1:27 and won this race in a very strong matter with a 15mins lead! Now I’m looking forward to my next big Challenge: Copenhagen.
At the end I want to say thank you to the race organisation director Sepp and his crew: great race, well-organized, fantastic crowd! Jo (who became 9th in the men’s field) and I loved it! Another thank you goes to Jakob, the boss of the hotel „Mohrenwirt“ and Eric for the support and nice pics. At last but not least: without the help of Robert I couldn’t have taken part: 4 days before the race I weren’t able to move somehow because of an injured rip! Thank you!
Sunny greetings from Bad Tölz!
