On Sunday I had a great race to finish 6th at the ITU Long Distance World Triathlon Championships in Perth. It was a tough race, the 3km swim was in a choppy Swan River followed by an 80km, 4 lap bike course with some nasty head winds and finished with a 20km, 4 lap run in hot conditions. I felt like I swam well, exiting the water about 8th and had a great ride to be 3rd at one point and came off the bike close to the main group of girls who were holding 2nd place, I found the run tough and was 6th across the line and 2nd Aussie (behind Bek Keat). Very pleased!
I enjoyed a nice bit of speed work this morning at the CCTM Duathlon at Coles Beach. A 3km run, 10km bike and 2km run was the shortest session I've had for a while but the intensity knocked me around all the same! It was great to see so many new faces taking on the challenge. 2 weeks out now from World LD Champs!
