Round 1, Box End Park evening series

Postby vernaburgess » Fri May 16, 2014 10:19 am

I was back at Box End Park last night for round 1 of their evening series. This was an off road triathlon 750m swim/10k bike/5k run. It was a warm sunny evening and water temperature of 15 degrees was quite pleasant.

I enjoyed the swim (usually very anxious about it) but the bike was very bumpy and I felt I lacked any rhythm and pace. Jelly legs are always a problem after the battering on this bike course so the run starts off slowly. I could see about 8 runners ahead of me on the run and mentally picked red shorts to take on there by the end. I got PBs on the course for swim and run, not on the bike unsurprisingly but overall all a course PB of 1 min or so in 1:16. Happy with that at start of season. I'll be back for more on round 2 on 12th June.

It was a beautiful evening for all things triathlon and as dusk came in the open water session for regular Wednesday swimmers was in full swing as the lake was open till 9pm.
