I am posting an update from New Zealand where I just had a month break after a wonderful season of racing with Andrea.
I will comeback to our 2012 season in another post.
I left France at the end of September to race the Yokahama World Triathlon Series.
Surprisingly, I crossed the finish line 4th despite a sinus infection which we caught during the travel with Andrea.
We just had one race to do and it was the Final of the World Champs in Auckland, a very special race for me as I live a long part of the year in Christchurch... 49% kiwi as my NZ friends always tell me.
I tried to train the best I could for this tough race but I was far from being able to recover for what needed to be done.
The mind was saying yes but my muscles weren't following.
Well, in fact no.
High performance sport is very demanding and that race was a perfect example of the key of good preparation.
Andrea did fantastic to grab another World Championship Medal.
So I am 8th in the 2012 World Championships and enjoying the off season with some friends in NZ before the big conditioning training block begins.
See you Soon, Laurent.
