Race Report - The Jodie Stimpson Aquathlon

My first Aquathlon (daft name)

What a great day! The sun was shining, everything was relaxed and Jodie Stimpson was racing with us amateurs.

I was interview by the BBC too! which was fun. very odd to see and hear myself on the TV.

Swim

The swim was okay, but I got caught up in the excitement of the start and shot off far too quickly! I was knackered and breathing every stroke for the first 100m!
I settled down into a better rhythm and was able to relax my breathing back to a comfortable and quicker, every 3 strokes.

T1

Once again I couldn’t get my wetsuit off quickly! Too much messing about gave me a poor T1 time (as usual)


Run

The run was actually quite relaxed, I could have pushed harder and I sprinted to the finish

Conclusion

Well, I cant complain with 11th! (out of 58)
00:31:38, I really like aquathlons :)
