Well , I can’t say I’m happy with my race here in London on Saturday.
Training the last few weeks had been good and I was disappointed .
An 8 am race meant a cooler start but still no wetsuit . I made the stupid mistake of not warming up in my wetsuit and by race start I was literally shivering my @#*! off on the start line . Cold body , crappy swim , couldn’t get moving = not a great race start . I was left with a lot of catching up to do on the bike and by the last lap had just caught the leaders . Obviously still not fit and strong enough to run my best off a hard bike , I ran on to finish 22nd in a very competive field.
Of course it’s not all over yet in terms of Olympic selection . None of the Aussies have automatically qualified yet . We have Beijing WCS final in 5 weeks time with an opportunity to step up and perform .
I ‘m now heading north up to Yorkshire for a few weeks training before returning back to Switzerland to race Lausanne world sprint champs and spend my last few weeks in Leysin and Team TBB camp for the year .
