Race Day: San Javier Sprint Triathlon

SUN 4th OCT. Swim 750m @ 18.22; T1 @ 2.25: bike 24 km @ 47.58; T2 @ 2.06; run 5 km @ 29.06. Total time 1 hr 40 min. 

A rookie mistake at the start caught me stuck behind the girls sprint line-up, which probably cost me half a minute. Got a puncture on the last 100 metres off the bike ride and nearly came off on the last bend, then dismounted and ran with the bike for the final 50 metres into T2. Felt those jelly legs going into the run, but was able to pick up the pace during the second half, with a little sprint finish.

Swimming was the biggest area of improvement. Bike was good but average speed needs to be faster. Running needs work to improve my pace coming off the bike. Transition times can still be improved also.

Overall, I am very happy with today's performance. Roll on next season.

Let's hear it for the old guy!
