The Galician triathlete, Pablo Dapena is on the starting line of Challenge Daytona which will be held next December 15 in the famous NASCAR racing circuit,

Pablo, who has been injured for 2 weeks without being able to run due to an injury, does not know how his body will respond, although he still has some time for the test.

The Galician will try to run these days to see how the injury progresses.

In social networks, Pablo commented:

«A bit away from social networks these last days ...
After the good results of @ironmanargentina  y  @challengecapetowntri  everything looked very beautiful to prepare @challengedaytona  But it has not been that way.

A breakage of fibers in the left twin takes two weeks away from running training on foot and that added to the excellent weather conditions in Galicia cause my motivation is not precisely because of the clouds.
Luckily it seems that this week I can try to run and start to get sensations, even if they are minimal, to get to Daytona just enough.

Luckily it seems that this week I will be able to try to run and start to get feelings, even if they are minimal, to get to Daytona with just enough.
