Sprint

After the race in Belgium I’ve went on a holiday and spent some time at my hometown. During my time there I got sick for the first time in about one and a half years. During the week I completely lost appetite and was feeling really week. By the Friday I was feeling fine again so I decided to participate in Croatian sprint triathlon championship race held this weekend. The race didn’t go according to plan. I had a solid swim, but paid the price for not practicing transitions this year. I dropped my helmet in transition which cost me a couple of seconds and a group on the bike. It was frustrating to ride 20m behind the group for the first 5-6 km, but I just didn’t have that extra 1% to close the gap. I got off my bike in 10th place and eventually run myself into 5th. Top 4 guys were out of reach. I have two big training weeks in front of me before an easier week and an Ironman 70.3 in Antwerpen on 2nd of August.
