Now I have slept overnight and been reflecting back to the race yesterday. Here some thoughts I came up to, they are not any excuses, but just how yesterday was
Tomorrow Sunday it is at 7 in the morning that I will race again. This is at 16 in Denmark and 17 in Finland on Sunday, just to make it clear, so you don’t miss it It will be my 10th Ironman, and I am ready to rock …!
Preparations have gone great, so now it is just to relax and fix the last things, before the gun will go off.

Tomorrow I will be strong and do again what I love to… Here we go!
I was racing the ITU Long Distance about a month ago. It was one of the goals for my season… The other season goal is just 6 days away : Ironman Canada in Whistler. It is always a bit tricky thing to recover from one long distance and get to be fit for fight for the next one, that is just 4 weeks away… How to do that then?
It was a day to remember on Saturday in Motala the long distance World Championchips in the distances 4-120-30. As it was pretty cold weather up to the raceday, and the water in the lake did not get warm enough, the swim was cut down to 1500m. For me…I was fine with both of the distances… Was just happy that it got to be a triathlon instead of duathlon (=run-bike-run). Just this decision shows again that in triathlon you have to be pretty flexible, and mentally strong as yo dont know what the day might bring but you sometimes dont even know the distance, than a day before …!
