The Temple Tri
Wait between the race start and our swim start (1 'painful' hour):
Vinit and I were regretting giving very very conservative swim times for the two of us. which pushed us to the back of the queue.
350m pool swim (00:13:46):
Comfortable. Mostly smooth. It was a litle tricky to go past people who were standing, walking and doing backstroke.
I think I was napping. Also took a loo break :P
9.1 mile Bike (00:43:50):
There were some hills but I still had fun pushing myself.
Mostly good and quick. Had a little bit of trouble parking my bike AND I forgot to take off my helmet but thankfully remembered before exiting transition : D
2.1 mile Run (00:26:46):
My legs were super tired after battling that last hill at the fag end of the bike course. Got side stitches again. Temp must have been 90+ but it's about time I got used to running in the heat. The hilly second half of the run course made matters worse. Overall run - not very great, could have been better.
Crossing the finish line and being welcomed by Steph, Steph and Vinit (1:30:03):
