Hey folks, just realised I did not check back after the completion of my first Triathlon. Well, I survived my maiden triathlon, and like what most folks say, you’ll want to do it again and again and again…
I arrived pretty early on race day, setup my bike and the stuff for transition. It was my first tri, so I was also secretly observing what other folks are doing, so that I can learn as well. I wasn’t going for timing, so my stuff was not really laid out in order, most of things were still stuffed in my bag. Before I knew it, the time came for my wave to go into the waters. I’m quite a swimmer myself, so the 1.5km swim was pretty easy for me, I completed in 35mins without really exerting myself as I wanted to conserve energy. The bike was my weakest, completing the 6km loop in 15minutes, darn slow!! Even the female triathletes were overtaking me…. The run was okay, but I couldn’t feel my legs for the first 4km… thereafter once I get the momentum, I was cruising along and managed the 10km in 1 hr 10mins, eventually completing my maiden triathlon in 3.5hrs.
Now that I have a first taste of the triathlon, I would want to do more…. swimming and running is manageable, I’ll need to work on the bike.
I’ll be back!
congrats for your first one bro!!
Congrats!!!! Great job!
good job. I’m not a regular triathlete, but the horrible feeling in your legs when you try to run straight off the bike never leaves my memory!
Look forward to your next Tri-review.
gratz bro! g8 job!
To Do Is to Dare! You done it! Welldone!
Thanks all for the encouraging notes… I’ll definitely be back for more and aiming to achieve a better result.
