Swim #1
  • 23m 54s
  • 1200.00 meters
  • -----

Big waves , but otherwise pretty nice , cruising speed swim , well within my ability
sighting every 5 strokes ,exhaling through my nose , there was a huge gap between our waves so did not catch anyone from previous race

4 mins faster than my rival

transition 1 1:11 gained 1 more minute of my rival (who is a faster runner)

Bike
  • 1h 14m 16s
  • 24.00 miles
  • 19.39 Mi/hr

About the same time as last year on the same course with the same weather , aero position 80% of the time , purposefully drank water and heed every 3 miles to fuel up and get ready for a good run
Same time as my rival
Transition 2 : 1.29 decided to put socks for the run
as the comfort and lack of blisters was worth 10 extra seconds

Run
  • 1h 03m 52s
  • 6.20 miles
  • 10m 18s /Mi

3 minutes faster than last year , walked the aid stations for 10 -15 seconds
First mile was breathing hard , then settled into a managable pace

Knew my rival was behind and sure enough I spotted him just after the turnaround
By 400 m to the finish line there was no one behind going to catch ,so cruised in . he arrived 40 secs later , a pretty close ,
stayed for awards and found out we placed 2 and 3 our of 11 in the international Clydesdale . Good race
