So today I probably raced my worse race ever! the conditions were lousy! Totally lowsy! I did not enjoy myself - I nearly drowned!

For the first time ever I got rescued by a lifeguard and I pretty much hacked up all over his board.

Pretty good start to the race huh?

Lets start at the beginning. We get to Bribie and I'm nervous. I get into transition and the racks are numbered. I find this a bit of relief- Except that the girl next too me has a giant towel and is taking up all my transition space too. PLUSin the space I actually have - I'm RIGHT ON TOP OF A BULL ANT'S NEST!!!

So I got transtion set up as best I could. Then to try and calm myself down I ran through what I'd do. It was my first time at Bribie and I to say I was "unfamiliar" was an understatement.

I figured out where I was running into transition and taking the bike out of. BUT - Couldn't figure out where I was coming back in.

Had no time to warm up. I couldn't understand the information about the WAVES and it was starting to get windy.

I did start with the right wave luckily. BUT just as we started the wind picked up. The water was really choppy. Every time I came up for breath I copped a lungful of salt water. I just couldn't get going and I was struggling to stay aflot. Next minute I'm almost HACKING and coughing up water everywhere. Lifeguard picks me up and says "I'll take you back to sure" I shake my head as I coughing up and somehow manage to thank him and tell him I'm going to make it back myself - and I did.

I wanted to cry when I reached the sure. But more importantly I was still thinking I was going to vomit.

I did finish the race - SO NOT a PB. Just under a hour according to my watch. Had problems on the ride too but I'll get to that in the race report. T2 was terrible cause the girl with a big towel had thrown her stuffinto my spot. I swore when I came back in and screamed "BITCH!" and then the ants of KARMA got me. I kicked her helmet off my stuff and got the hell out of there.

I was so exhausted on the run I was just shuffling to try and finish.

So yeah - RACE REPORT TO COME! I'm going to sleep some more. That was the TOUGHEST race I've ever done. I feel I did better in the Caloundra event - AND that was longer AND I came dead last in it! I really really really felt

EEEP

Silly hospital! I've had shipping containers blocking my window for the last 6 months. They moved them 2 weeks ago and now their building a she in its place. Well that's just freaking great!!! >_< So I'm losing my pathetic view permenently. (and my sunshine during winter by the way)

 

What should I do to brighten my area up? I'll be working in a BOX. ;_;
