2nd Place at IRONMAN 70.3 KRAICHGAU/ GERMANY
Do I have a membership on 2nd place finishes? Sometimes it does look like that a
Ironman 70.3 Kraichgau is a race I have done many times, such a great event and
so very well organized.
The day started very well with a very good swim coming out of the water in 2nd
place strait behind the strong Superstar Laura Phillip. We have both improved our
swim so much and I was happy to hold on to her feet and having my best swim ever
on this course in this beautiful lake.
My plan was to stay with Laura as long as possible, well that wasn’t very long. The
last couple of weeks have seen me struggling on the bike portion, something new for
me as normally the bike part has always been my strength. In a video with Tri-mag,
which you can see here, the headline is that I can’t seem to find my 6th gear:
From all the years racing, I know that I need races to get faster, so let’s hope that
turns out to be like this again for this season.
So well my bike was my slowest ever on this course and I had to rely on my run to safe my 2nd place behind the German rising star Laura.
Thank god my running legs
we’re fine and even when I didn’t have a very fast run it was solid enough to take a 2nd place once again.
