It was a tough summer living through the height of a groin injury. Pulled in two places the recovery has been super slow. But I felt finally recovered enough to at least give the sprint a try.

Race conditions were great, slightly cool, but clear. The swim went smoothly, tracked a little slowly in the pack to not over do it. Someday I’ll get used to race take-out and then sliding into the groove. The bike was great minus a little bit of traffic. Still getting the power back in the legs but it was a start. And the run was a blast at 6:40s for only a 5k.

I’m still behind my normal strength, but this was a step forward to recovery. Hopefully back to the olympic next year!
