The cumulation of a long season at #xterrapanam
last weekend, everyone agreed that is was a brutal day and we were all really suffering throughout. I started it off pushing the swim as hard as possible to try to open up gaps, others said they felt the swim was slow and comfortable, well of course it was when you were sitting in the draft I didn't see that you were able to pull around to the front and push the pace.
Josiah then crushed all our spirits on the bike with a dominating ride and the rest of us were racing for 2nd. In the end I rode alright but was really hurting the whole way through and came in to transition in 5th.
The run was all about survival and was an absolute sufferfest all the way through, battling an injury since June and not having much run fitness I was hanging on as best I could. With the strength of the guys racing you have to be at your best otherwise they will blow right by you, I ended my day in 8th.
Congrats to @josiahmiddaugh
on the commanding win, @bsweiss_tri
on the podium at the race.
Congrats to @kieranmcpherson_triathlete @josiahmiddaugh
for racing so strong all year long, I had some great races against these guys but they were stronger throughout the year and I am happy to be 4th in the series behind them.
