On 13th July I was in Tiszaujvaros – Hungry for my last race event before Beijing on 19th August!
I have been training very well in Switzerland since beginning of June with all the focus to have the best performance I possible can in the Olympic Games. My race in Tis had the main reason of to make the final analyses and see where I still could get some improvement for the next final five weeks!
I had a solid swimming and with a fast transition I was in the first pack with less than 2km into the cycling. The pacing on the bike it was very easy all the good athletes just try save the legs for the run and control the race not letting any fast runner to get away.
With a very efficient T2 I was with the leader group after just few hundred meters. I was felling very strong however it seemed like I was missing my last gear and every time I try to push I did not find the legs. I lost contact with the top positions by 3km on the run. With a very good 3rd lap I could put myself closer again however it was not enough time anymore to get there and I needed to be satisfy with one more 5th place in a Word Cup.
I am quite happy by the only reason I know I still can run better than what I did what shows it just a matter of keep doing exactly the same thing I have done and I will get my performance where I want.
