I competed in the BRW triathlon today. I managed to finish the 400m swim, 10km bike ride and 4km run in 56 minutes 20 seconds. I’m pretty happy with that for my first ever triathlon. The team I was in got the following result:
Team member 1 (that was me)
Swim 10:03, Bike 27:56, Run 18:21
Team member 2 (Nick)
Swim 14:13, Bike 25:37, Run, 17:37
Team member 3 (Chad)
Swim 14:53, Bike 28:58, Run 26:12
Grand Total 3:03:50
I think I got the easy deal because I went first I had to do less running. It was also significantly hotter later in the day when the sun came out. Chad got a cramp at the 2km mark on the run and had to get some massage from someone nearby. I imagine the heat would have contributed to that.
When I get some photos I will post them.
