Tough and exciting in Yokohama! I struggled getting my body back after the tough conditions in Egypt a week earlier.
It’s great to be back in Yokohama for the 3rd time.
I was aggressive today, trying to make something by pushing the pace in the swim and creating a breakaway of 7 athletes. Unfortunately no one was really committed to work other than Gomez and myself. We got caught and I attempted a breakaway with two other athletes which looked good for a while but athletes attacking from behind made it hard to stay off the front.
After a hard swim and bike I am happy to hang in there for 14th after it all came down to the run with 50 plus athletes.
I look forward to freshen up leading into London in two weeks time.
