What a great day to kick off the season. It wasn’t as hot as forecasted which was good and it was a little windy on the bike and choppy in the water but that’s Melbourne racing for you “tough”

I have been building fitness for Ironman Busselton in two weeks (my first Ironman) so I haven’t done too much speed work and I defiantly wasn’t fresh for this race.

I didn’t have the best swim but it has never been strength of mine as well as I have been training for a 3.8k swim not 500meters, but it was ok 8mins and 12secs didn’t break any records here.

Transition 1 took 1min and 37 secs again ok.

My bike leg was solid but with a solid block of Ironman bike work my legs were tired, I was happy with 30mins and 28sec.

This is the worst part of my day transition two, I lost a lot of time here as I forgot what rack I was on, rookie mistake! 1min and 11 secs that’s a good 20-30sec slower than the rest of the field that means a painful run ahead to make up some time!

The run I was surprised with how well I went as in my warm up I felt average so I was happy to make up some places and finish 2nd with a run split of 16mins and 28secs.

I would like to thank CBD cycles for their great service and quality equipment that have helped me so much in training, racing and reliving some stress.

Happy Training!
