What did I expect from this race? “Nothing” would probably be the only and honest answer. With no watch and no real speed sessions in my legs this was always supposed to be a hard training day.

I never found my rhythm and had problems to hold the groups on a boring out and back course from Waterford to Tranmore.

The rest was hard work as i screwed up my pacing in the early stages and had to pay for that badly.

In Auto – Mode i cruised back towards the stadium in Waterford. The clock at the finish line told me that i had been out there for 80 Minutes.

Lot of speed work is ahead of me – Bring it on!
