It has been a hectic summer juggling a few MBA Accounting courses while working more at the shop and training more! The last two months have been focused on dialing in my 70.3 race performance. As I write up this, I am en route to Zell Am See via Lufthansa. My PFC Team Elite teammates are fast asleep (maybe I should be too).
Earlier this month, I raced the Riverhead Rocks Olympic distance triathlon. After spending a lot of time this summer in the pool, my swim time has dropped significantly, which helps set me up in a better position on the bike. Once on the bike, I was very comfortable within the first 5 minutes. The wattage was exactly where I wanted, rolling in at 260 watts NP. Going into T2, I was 2nd position with a 20-30 second deficit from 1st. The 10km run course featured 2 loops and I worked my way up to 1st after we passed the 1 mile marker. I made a strong push to take the lead and didn’t look back! The run split was 38:15, with some negative splits on the flat course.
Winning the Riverhead Triathlon certainly gave me the morale boost that I needed for my final couple of weeks of training leading up to 70.3 World Championships in Zell Am See, Austria. Fastest bike split doesn’t come easy, especially weighing 63kg. Thank you to all of my sponsors – CEEPO Triathlon bikes, PFC Elite Team, SCODY Australia, Rudy Project, Newton Running, ISM Seat, Zone3 Wetsuits.
I’ll have more pictures and updates coming soon!
Wish me luck 🙂
