First Triatlon - Roade Sprint Tri

Okay. I guess you have to pop your cherry in all walks of life and "tri" is no exception. Took part in my first full triatlon at Roade School in Northampton. It comprised a 414m pool swim, a 20k bike ride and a 5k run.

Splits were (approx)

Swim - 8.27
Bike - 38 mins plus
Run - 20 mins (very muddy and off road)

Total time was 1 hour 07 minutes dead.

REALLY enjoyed the event. Friendly, relaxed and fun. Pushed hard in the bike and felt this could be my strongest event. Placed 90th out of over well over 400. Not so bad for a vetran newbie.

Weather was wet... especially in the pool.
