Pre-race routine:

Woke up at 3am. left home at 4:15 and drove for the hour to get to Caloundra. Got into transition, set up, realised I wasn't really organised - found the jelly dinosaurs in my bento box and laughed!
Event warmup:

walk to start, a few laps of the start line.
  • 08m 23s
  • 400 meters
  • 02m 06s / 100 meters

It was a fast swim. Water was clean, no chop and working with the current. Only downside was slipping as I stood up to get out of the water. Going under thr bridge for the first time was so cool!
Transition 1
  • 00m

Transition was markedly improved.
  • 31m 44s
  • 15 kms
  • 28.36 km/hr

I kept trying to eye off and overtake the girls in my category. I had a BLINDER of a ride and REALLY enjoyed myself
Transition 2
  • 00m

Helmet off, knee guard on and away she goes!
  • 23m 36s
  • 4 kms
  • 05m 54s  min/km

Run was pretty good. Still wearing the knee guard but no pain for the first time in a while. Was lots of fun. :)

Knee -but it's getting BETTER!

Event comments:

I think I've outgrown this race. It's too far to travel for the length of time on the course.
