So it’s been a year since my first Triathlon, and I am returning to Blenheim this year. I am again doing the short Super Sprint race:
- Swim 400M
- Cycle 13.2km
- Run 2.9km
Last year I astonished myself by completing the race in under an hour — albeit by only 20 seconds, so that makes setting a goal for this year quite hard. Obviously I want to at least match 59m40s (swim 8m49; bike 27m24; run 15m49).
I was 32nd overal and 9th in my age group, though this year I will be in the next group as I have a pretty big birthday before the year is out ;-)
This year I have worked hard on my swimming but not much work on the bike and run segments. A top 5 (age group) is probably too much to ask as that would need a sub 55 minute time!
So my goal? I really want to get the swim in under 8 minutes. To that end I’m going for my first open water swim of the year tonight.
