|3rd Female Overal /1st AG- AVG Speed 24.6mph - Time 24:24|
I am 3 months post crash now and feeling pretty good. I still have some work to go and have been fitted for a new device that I have to wear in my mouth for two weeks to help reprogram the muscles. Once that's done then I can get some of my teeth repaired. The hard part is over tho. Thankfully.
Going into this was a real test for me. To test my fitness. As you know from prior posts, I fought pretty hard to keep up my strength during the whole ordeal. Last night was the proof that I needed for myself that the effort has paid off. I have something to build the season on and really happy with the result.
Last year was the first time I tried time trials and I only did three of them. They are still very new to me and I'm still learning. Last night I tried a different approach to finish strong and it worked well. I plan to do the series and hope to get stronger and learn more each time. That's the goal anyway. Last night was a great night with lots of Tri Team Ignite teammates there. Good times.

|Starting the TT|
I am over the moon with the result. I was 3rd female overall and 1st in AG. Time was 24:24 and speed was 24.6mph avg. It was my best TT result yet. Coming off the crash, getting back on the bike, working through the mental anxiety and pushing through the physical issues to stay on top was tough but I damn well did it. I fought hard and it paid off. This time trial was definitely the race of truth for me! Next up Vanderkitten training camp and then St. Anthony's in less than 4 weeks!!
