So, back from WOC and time for some reflection. Hopefully I get around to commenting on the actual races I did, but I'll start here.
WOC was a great experience. It was even more fun than I thought it would be as a spectator and a participant. I’m really glad to have had the opportunity to be on the US Team and I might like to do it again.
I thought we had a great group of people and I am proud of everyone. The girls were especially inspiring, with a bunch of good races and laudable consistency.
I am pleased with my races generally but hardly satisfied. I am disappointed with the result in the long qualifier. If I were to qualify in any of these races that would be the one I am closest to. I think with current fitness a clean race would be in the mid 70s rather than mid 80s. But, there is a lot of work, technical and physical to get the rest of the way. Qualifying in the middle seems more elusive to me still.
