Weekend Training Schedule & News
JENNY WINS IN MUSKOKA
Jenny Zenker had a great race. Here is her quick race report.
1st place in my age group, 2nd place overall and qualification for the 70.3 World Championships 2019 in Nice (France)! Mission 1 of my Canada trip successfully accomplished! (-:
1.9km swim in 25min33 -> fastest woman overall and only one man faster. Very happy with that as 900m of it was also against the current.
90km bike in 2h26 -> fastest woman overall. I actually thought it would be a quite flat course and aimed for a slightly faster time. However, in reality it was permanent rolling hills with pretty much no flat sections. But I felt very good on the bike and cannot complain at all with an average of 37km/h.
21km run in 1h35 -> at the end I had to let a former track runner and current full time triathlete and probably soon to be Pro triathlete go ahead of me. I wanted to have a race outside of Asia to compete against a high quality field of athletes. And when she passed me it gave me exactly that kick to run faster, to go over my limits and see how long I can hold it. Well until the last 5km where I literally could not lift anymore my legs. But overall super happy with my run. I was struggling a lot with it lately and this was the very first time running the Half marathon in a 70.3 race again under 1h40 for the last 4 years. Yes! 4h30 total time.
