Post London

London was a tough race for me. I had a terrible swim - was pulled under a number of times at the first buoy and never recovered - and was then not able to work on the bike to ride up to the front because we were trying to make sure that the Americans finished as high as possible and since there were other women up the road, I had to sit and wait.

When I crossed the finish line, I was so exhausted I started crying.

Since my return home, my body has had a hard time recovering. I think the physical and emotional stress of the racing along with my allergic reaction just really took a toll on my body.

With Worlds and a whole number of other events coming up in September and October, it has been stressful for me to be home and not be able to train immediately the way I want to. But, sometimes, rest is the best remedy. So... I'm resting.

As a measure to make life simpler, I am also going to step away from my blog, facebook, twitter etc. and just try to focus on training, healing my body and getting myself ready to race. So, look for updates from me... later... I don't know when I'll return... but a short time away will probably be good for me.

So, until then...

all the best.
Jenna

Steel sharpens steel. You will continue to get better. Stay focused on your health & goals not the media or others. This is your brief time or opportunity in your life to go and prove it. Be professional and remember there is always someone better until you can prove them all wrong...Go. Go. Go. alohajeffpeterson@gmail.com

Hi Jenna, I just wanted to drop a note that you still continue to inspire esp me, thru your up's and down's in your tri career. I'm in awe as to your effort not just in training but getting up again and again! Please keep that chin up and keep going, forward and onward!
