The results are in

After yesterday’s exertions, today was a rest day, and I confined my activities to a 0.8 mile run home from the station.

As for the triathlon, my stats were as follows:

  • 400m swim: 00:10:43
  • T1: 00:02:58
  • 21.2km cycle: 00:51:27
  • T2: 00:01:22
  • 5km run: 00:31:02
  • Total time: 01:37:32 (260th of 403 finishers).

What did I learn from the day?

  • Take a towel.  Yes, despite the whole “there’s an open water swim involved” thing, this small detail didn’t even cross my mind.
  • Transitions can make a massive difference.  One of the competitors came out of the swim in 226th place and left T1 in 126th place.  No exertion required.
  • When I’m 65, I want to be as fit as Brenda Bozwood Davies.  The only competitor in the 65-69 age group, she romped round in a time of 01:29:15, with a swim of 09:55, a cycle of 44:59 and a run of 29:45.  Wow.

    LOL you forgot a towel – v funny! However as I wouldn’t even make it to the start of that run I am going to shut up and just say bally well done old girl. A 31m 5k after swimming and cycling that far is brilliant. Proving once again yoju are hardcore and very definately NOT a sloth!

  3. Did you need the towel to dry from the swim or to dry from the exertions?

    You should be happy for lacking the towel – it would make your T1 time longer. Well done!
