MY FIRST TRIATHLON!
On Monday I completed my first triathlon, which was a great experience. I must say that it was something I have wanted to do for a while now and have decided to do more! I came 95th out of 233 so wasn’t a bad go at my first one. Being a runner i did well in the last discipline with the 26th fastest run time. However, the swim and bike, for which i hadn’t trained for was hell! As I am currently 2 weeks away from competing in Edinburgh marathon, i have spent all my time training for running and thus the swim and bike suffered, but all things considered i am pleased with my first effort. I think with a bit more training on the bike and in the pool I’ll be able to compete a lot more with the better athletes. Anyway I will keep you posted on my marathon and how it goes on the lead up to the big day. thanks for reading!
