Last weekend was the first round of the ITU World Triathlon Series in Sydney, Australia. I came into the race looking to build on the performances I’ve had already this year and take another step towards my ultimate goal of performing well in August. I was able to do just that, finishing with a solid 13th place finish. I was hoping to be in a position to run with the leaders on the first couple of laps, but I wasn’t far off, and I was able to close well on the second half of the run so that was good. Overall I was happy with the result.
After a couple days of recovery in Sydney, I traveled over to Japan for the World Cup race in Ishigaki this weekend. I’m looking forward to getting out there on Sunday. This race offers another good opportunity to mix it up at the front of the race.
