Ready to tri my best! **UPDATED with results!** ...and pics added!
My final triathlon of this summer is tomorrow morning!!! :) I'm excited, because DH, BIL and FIL are all doing it, too! Should be fun! I'll post my results tomorrow... I hope to at least beat my last times (or tie them, worst case)!. :)
Ok, here are my results:
Transition 1: 3:22
Transition 2: 2:01
Total Time: 1:28:20
My swim time before (750m swim) was 0.0234/m. This time (400m) it was 0.0289/m. So, slower overall. I prefer the SheROX swim waves. This race was a mess with the swim and I kept getting stuck around bunches of people and it was hard to get around the slower swimmers. I didn't have that issue with the SheROX. I'm disappointed that the lack of organization with the waves caused a slower overall swim time.
Transition 1 (before): 4:14, improved by 52 seconds.
Bike (before): 48:28, improved by 4:41.
Transition 2 (before): 2:06, improved by 5 seconds.
Run (before): 31:49, improved by 2:53.
My division place was 28/100 (females 30-34). For females (all ages), I placed 171/704. Overall, my place was 693/1628. Tehnically, my husband beat me, but I finished higher in my division than he did for his division. :) I'll take it!
It was fun!!! I am so glad I decided to do a second one! Beating my former times and competing with family gave me extra motivation to push hard! :) I look foward to doing these again next summer! Triathlons are fun and give you a great sense of accomplishment!
