Racing In August

A time to re-evaluate

In july I took a mid-season break to reconsider things and get healthy.

T3 Series Triathon
In the mid of august I did race again! This was the T3 series race in Weiswampach (LUX), a race of the belgian national circuit. Due to an incredible warm summer in Belgium, the water quality was not OK and the race was turned into a duathlon. (too many algae)
This was a nice surprise since I’m a capable runner. On the other hand I wasn’t quite sure about my fitness level since I was only running for a few week and still revalidating from the ankle anterior impingement injury. But since this was only a sprint, I was confident this would be no problem for the ankle.
The race went really well, especially the run surprised me and I managed to take the win! My team also took the overall victory that day!

ETU cup Hungary
A week after the T3 race, I participated again on an international level in Hungary. With the motivational boost from last week, I was eager to race. But unfortunately I got ill the day of the race. This made me feel quite weak in every discipline. I had a terrible swim and as a consequence the race was pretty much over. No chance of coming back on a peleton of 20 or more guys as the level in these races is high! A shame because I know I can compete for a nice result on these races.

For the rest of the season I’m NOT going to rush races like a lunatic and try to make up for some lost time, races, points,.. First races up are 2 very short but fast paced relay races: beginning with the national series in the Netherlands on the 9th of september where we will try to prolong our title!  2 weeks later I'll compete in the Belgian T3 series in the team relay race!
