3rd at IRONMAN 70.3 Pays d'Aix



Today I achieved a satisfying 3rd place. 6 weeks after a complete IRONMAN, racing a half distance event is never easy. With this nice podium spot I can build further towards next races.

I came out of the water as 6th, about 1 min after the leaders. During the bike leg, I missed some explosivity and race rhythm on this very hilly course. I started as 11th for the closing half marathon and I was able to develop a very fast pace immediately. Eventually I finished 3rd, after a strong come back and ran my fastest half marathon time.

Next Sunday, I'll start at the IRONMAN 70.3 Barcelona to build up towards my top fitness for IRONMAN Nice.


See you soon,
