300m Swim, 8km Ride, 2km Run
My first attempt at a triathlon ever. It was about 5deg, windy & wet.
Important things to note.
- I have not swum 300m since Cody was a baby. 12 years ago & I nearly drowned a couple of times in the 1 & 1/2m ocean swell.
- The last time I ran 2km I would have been in high school. 30 years ago. I had to have a short walk in the middle of the run.
Over all 113th of 241
M40 + 15th of 27
- Swim 07:16
- T1 02:41
- Ride 14:12
- T2 02:00
- Run 11:02
- Total 37:12.4
My one saving grace was that I was 13th fastest of the 241 on the ride.
With a little cross training & smarter thinking in transition I think I can do a bit better and there will be a next time.........
