Vini Vidi not vichy

Just a quick updated about my race in vichy.

Its a bitter sweet taste that i have.

Everything, i mean everything went perfectly before the race and i felt great up until the very last meal the day before the race. At 9pm the sad show of vomiting all over the place and again at 1 am leaving me in a destroyed state. Unfortunately Vanessa witnessed this all all night long.

The morning of the race i tryed to put in some calories, went for the swim, swam the best i could with the conditions i had, hoped on the bike and at 30 min roughly breakfast along the first gels (i assume) came out also at the side of the road, expected. frome then on it was all about respecting the "race" and in the process hlep Vanessa establish a new PB and getting 5th overall. I beat my PB as well as the full distance ironman without calories, not even coke lasted long in my stomach.

Anyway, i know i was fitter than in Roth, but couldnt deliver. tough luck, life goes on, i love this and look forward to the next one ;)  This makes the digestion of this race a lot easier, ha literally... digestion !!!
