Pre-race routine:

The University is just over the river from where I live... We drove there though. BF decided at the last minute to enter so most of my routine was spent with him making sure he bought the right pair of swim togs.
  • 00m
  • 200 meters
  • / 100 meters

The tri started in 1min blocks. 1-9 went first then 10-19... then me 20-29.
I REALLY sucked. I did 50m freestyle and managed to keep up with the group, but when I rounded the first buoy I started choking. thought I was going to spew, I had to stop for a sec... But I didn't want to give in here! I'd just started!!! Since I CAN'T breaststroke and my strongest suit is backstroke... I thought I'd give it a go... :P I didn't use my arm's though and I was still faster than one of the guys who started at the same time I did.

I did alsmost 150m on my back cause I was just sick.
What would you do differently?:

Learn to swim
Transition 1
  • 00m

Put the helmet on then my runners (since I don't ride clipless yet) and jumped on my hybrid!
  • 00m
  • 9 kms
  • 0.00 km/hr

The best part of the ride was overtaking a stunned guy who looked like a serious roadie halfway through my second lap. Here I came on my bloody heavy hybrid bike powering past him on the flats! WOOHOO!!!
Transition 2
  • 00m
  • 00m
  • 3 kms
  •  min/km

And I ran for as far as I could. I had one of the biggest stitches ever! So I'd run 2mins walk 1min etc.

Lotsa people overtook me on the run But I don't care

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Lack of training

Event comments:

This was my very first tri! I did very well on my the cycle leg but think I'd do better with some more training.
