Great fun at the trawlerman triathlon today. Demi sprint distance so very short.
400m swim, 8.75km bike and 3.6km run. Haven’t seen the results yet but I think my bike made up for the usual slow swim.
It was a really entertaining course with a pool swim around buoys, a varied circuit with a 600m straight ish fast section followed by 100,180, and 90 degree bends in fast succession. Narrowing sections,uphills downhills, cobbles and a fast 180 bend all packed in to a 1250m loop!
Tight transition area leading to a maze style running track where the longer courses had longer out and back loops within the park. Very creative.
Don’t know where I came, hope to have been the fastest from the ‘8mins plus’ swim time group.
Really don’t care though. It was great fun and then there were junior races as well so Louis helped and cheered me before I returned the favour a few hours later.
