So what is next?

Trans-Portugal. The MTB stage race with 9 days, 1150km and more elevation gain that i can remember!!!

Yes, totally not triathlon but it is a awesome challenge in this super limited entry race. Hopefully it will give me enough bike strenght for the rest of the season ;)

I really dont have any real competitive goal, heck i have a handfull of MTB workouts this year. Im confident enough to say that i have good skills in off road but im sure i will be overwhelmed by the others, first goal is of course staying in one piece. Then its all about finishing and enjoy this race.

The other goal is to log runs and swims during this period.

African photos

Apart from the "small" glitch in the run that destroyed my race, i loved going to south africa for the race. The venue spectators and race are AWESOME.

here are some photos

goning under 4min/km at the end of the run after all the S$#$ was kinda nice. i ran with the gel flask in one hand and 3 gels in another the whole run, i dont know why i didint just tossed them away ;)
