Ok, I`m a bite late with me report but it takes me always some day to get the blog in english
Dont have to report too much . It was a great race without many of downs or adversities. No spectacular cramps in the run or racks collapsed in me T2 … boring. Just had a little fight with a bloody jellyfish-attack. He burning me of the half forearm. It made me to forget all pains in the legs, thats the good side. The bad, it was still burning after race and me arm was swollen like a sea cucumber… 5day later, it still lucks like I had the morbilli on just one arm
I consider my win to be a gift to myself. The last few months I have trained harder than ever before and this is my reward. My 4th place a week earlier in Abu Dhabi gave me great confidence, especially for the run. So when I was 3 minutes behind Jodie Swallow after a solid swim and bike, I didn’t let it get to me. I did my own race and my own pace and enjoyed the finish line at the end like never before.
Congratulation also to Stephan and Jan, well done. “Chapeaux” for your race James, I`m sure you will swim much faster in IM SA just to escape me little smacks
