2014 ETU Long Distance Duathlon European Championship

Race Report

This race was a 15.25 Kilometre run, 60K Bike and a 7.5 Kilometre run. I knew I would have to get stuck in and try and run with the lead group for as long as possible. I didn’t start my garmin at the start as I knew it would be fast and I didn’t want to look down at it and think shit this is fast running also it didn’t matter what I was running as I had to go with the group. I ended up doing the 1st run in 50 minutes 08 seconds which is 16.25 for 3 consecutive 5ks back to back so good running for me. I struggled on the bike as I’ve never done a hard run before trying to do a bike before and I really struggled on the bike. In hindsight if I did this race again I would do some specific bike run workouts. My second run was pretty solid as well so some good positives to take as my power on the bike has been pretty good in bike workouts. Overall 14th place so not going to set the world a light but a good start to the season.
