Today was a disaster... flat tire, bad change swim to bike and I lost 4 places in the last 50m...
you win some, you lose some, but this is a bitter one to swallow... should have been my race as I ‘m peaking like hell.

> Best swim time of 40+
> Overall 20th bike time
> I won't mention the running (I think position 88)
> Looks like I'm nr 14 of the age group 40+ and overall 54.
> I need to work on my drinking/eating skills during the bike race. I loose too much sugar and water which results in bad running. Unfortunately my digestion doesn't like fructose and some other chemical sh*t found in power bars and gels. (I won't mention the results of fructose on my digestion, but it ain't pretty)
> I'm very happy with my bike race. I really made progress here. I can't cope with speeds over 40km/h for a long time, but today I managed to stick to a group @ 40-43km/h for about 15km. The last 12km I abandoned this group and had to drive all by myself (@35km/h) which maybe even required more effort from me.
> Running was a nightmare did 3km @ 4:44min/km; than 2km @ 5:02min/km (shame on me) but the last km I was @ my regular speeds of 4:15km/h. It was hot, but I was trained for that so no excuses there.
> Now I'll relax the rest of the day (Jacuzzi time) and tomorrow recuperation day, in 3 weeks my next event...
> Tired but satisfied! what a race it was!
