Well the first World Cup in Mooloolaba was last weekend and went okay. I finished a solid 19th in a strong Olympic year field, less than a minute out of my top 10 goal. I made few mistakes in T1 (which I managed to recover from) and T2 (which put me onto the run back of the lead girls, oops!), but I had a decent run (37.46) for how I felt on the day! It was a rough swim and a hot bike and run. Only going up from here!

Now I am off to New Plymouth, New Zealand for a week and then to Japan for the next 2 races. I’ll try to get on for an update there but you might have to wait until after Japan (or until the Tokyo airport!). Thanks for all the supporting e-mails and comments–they keep me positive and working hard!!

Take care back home…I gotta go pack!
