D Day at The Worlds: That’s all folks. It’s over for another season. Finished 44th. Julie Bresset wins. Time to eat mountains of cake

Mountains_of_cake

Today was an odd day. This morning I didn’t feel like I was about to race a World Championship. It was as though I had emotionally clocked out for the season. However, I felt better than I had all week in the warm up and I thought that maybe all was going to be ok. But when the gun went I just couldn’t summon that extra wee bit that I usually have. Whenever I tried to go into the red (which is pretty much where you have to be the entire time in a World Cup or Championship) my body did not respond so I whipped round the very fast, fun course at tempo and hoped that would be enough. It wasn’t quite. Got pulled with a lap to go but it was all I had on the day. It’s hard to deal with when you know you could have performed better on another day with a little more luck in the lead up but that is the nature of racing. You’re only as good as you are in that moment. A good lesson. I’m now off to spend a month living in the moment and not always delaying the gratification of things like beer and cake and spending time with family and friends because I have training or a race to do. October is going to be about being human again. So important to touch this base before the next season begins or bad things happen to your personality, so I am told.
