It was the 2nd running of Challlenge Fuertaventura. It was a really good race just like last year. Great venue, really good testing course, safe quiet smooth roads. Loads of volunteers. And a really great atmosphere, which is the norm for Challenge races. What I was surprised with was that there was only 240 entries. I hope that people will hear about what a great race this is and come next year, it is such a good race to do for european athletes to start the season with. So come next year, you will love it.
My race was not so great. As you can read in Bella’s blog we were all a bit ill on race day, I don’t know if that is a great excuse, but for whatever reason I was a way off the pace on Sunday. But I was so happy to see Bella out there racing, she is getting her fitness back it was a great start to her comeback, especially racing with a cold and no sleep for a few days:)
I don’t feel too ill this morning, so I hope to recover quickly and get back to training and be good and strong for Ironman Lanzarote in 5 weeks time.
Chalie although not feeling 100% seemed to really enjoy his time with his grand parents and seeing all the athletets racing around. Here at Playitas here was mesmorised by the spin clases that go on, he thought it was fascinating:)
Well done Dan! the training we have been doing in Gran Canaria is working:)
