Comeback year for @haukur.h, starting with a win:
In 2016 I had the best season of my life, but I paid a price for it with a small injury that I probably got in Kona. I unknowingly put it down to a post IM niggle and ran through the winter, which exacerbated it greatly into a severe case of achilles tendonitis.
In short, 4 months of no running was quite a setback, and it had a big mental effect on me too. I gave serious thought to quitting and worse. Obviously it was a disappointing year for me, with a few highlights such as ITU worlds and bearman - both of which were effectively completion exercises anyway.
I'm really happy to be finding my way back now and getting some momentum back into my life. Retaking the @fulontri sprint champs yesterday was the crown on a solid block of early season racing (I've raced 4 times in May. Wtf?) and I had to put together a performance I didn't think I was capable of to do it. There was a serious pain face on the run photo. .

The two pictures sums up my half Marathon very Well. The first 10 km went OK, and then I went straight to survival mode for the last 10 km.

Nadar en el mar es algo que me daba (Y aún me da) Miedo 😨
Pero ahí estoy, mirándole fijamente mientras salto las olas, ganándole el pulso al miedo 💪
