Transition 2
  • 00m

Post race
Warm down:

-Nadda, could barely move, I guess I walked it off for about 15 minutes, which was good

What limited your ability to perform faster:

-Not enough training in Bike/Run

Event comments:

-this was my first Triathlon and I didnt know exactly what to expect.
-It was very difficult but I enjoyed it very much
-Need a training plan that will emphasize the bike/run portions since I have been competitively swimming with a year of varsity experience for a very long time, and had acheived national standards in the 1500m freestyle
