Well I did my first triathlon in the pouring rain yesterday!!
I'll do a full race report later - but splits something like this (I don't think I was too good at pressing the button, so have estimated a little)...
Swim (200m pool): 03:57
very happy to be sub 4mins :oD
went pretty smooth, bike shoes on easily and no phaffing getting another top on
Bike (16.5k): 36:15
well given the rain and the number of roundabouts (11!) I am really really pleased with this time
again really smooth
Run (5k): 25:58
If that is really the split time I'm well chuffed, and don't deserve it given lack of training in recent weeks! The route was largely through woods (which I love running in) BUT we really should have been told it was x-country (given all the rain!) I did loose a shoe in the mud once. Muddy wasn't the word!
TOTAL: 1:09:20 (unofficial)
So having said I wasn't going to "race" it, I obviously kinda did. Probably could have pushed a bit more on the run but not much.
Lots of experiments (mainly involving velcro!) went well with a couple of casualties! I'll write the full race report later today - this morning no exercise just lots of stretching and rolling on my foam roller!
Oh and have found some excellent self-help exercises for the sacro joint so am managing to keep it in line for myself. Must be working as it seems to be settling down (fingers crossed). Thanks Wes for your good wishes on that front! :o)
Happy dayz :o)
