Stu Wins Malibu Triathlon

What a week it has been for me with two races in 6 days. I am still currently in the USA at the moment and fly back to the UK later tonight.
I flew over form London 10 days ago to race the LA triathlon which was very tough because form the start I felt flat & tired and did not have much to give during the swim and when I ran up to my bike I knew I it was going to be a tough day. My legs felt heavy and there are days when you know you havent got the zip to lift to that next level. However I pushed on and rode as hard as I could and managed to hold my position in 4th on the bike but lost 2 minutes to Greg Bennett the eventual winner who was flying that day and is a great athlete, one of the best in the world in fact. I was dissapointing coming off the bike as I knew I had riden poorly and lost alot of time to the leader and the others in front of me. Once onto the run we hit some hills and they were tough really tough but I managed to close down Brent Mc mahon from canada and held my position to the finish. Its amazing how dissapointed you can be after winning a big race like chicago two weeks earlier but made me realise I needed to take things abit easier with malibu triathlon only 6 days away.
So after having a much easier weeks training and finally adjusting to the time difference things were alot easier in Malibu and I felt so much fresher having come into transition first from the swim I immediately jumped on my bike and found my legs. Then towards the end of the bike I rode strongly to get as much time as I could on the others behind ready for the run. when on the run I knew I could win and at the turnaround I could see only olly Freeman close enough to challenge me so pushed it abit harder and made sure I kept the gap big enough so he wouldnt get to close.
I ran to the finish with a smile on my face and knew it was another win under my belt as I havent had as many wins as I have had this year. So the training is paying off for sure and look forward to my next race in Dallas in 4 weeks time.
