and fully prepared for a last placed finish!

 

Training's been going ok but cant swim 'properly', I can get by but technique wise it must be horrendous! On the bike isnt too bad and I know I'll be ok on the run (if I get that far!!)

Suppose have to look at it that it's something to beat in my next tri :-/

Exactly .... there will never be another first time

Enjoy it, learn from it and beat it next time

I've not even made my debut yet, so even if you come last you're still better than me!

Enjoy it, like has been said already, you'll never have another first time!

sooo I done it in 1:29:23. fairly pleased to beat 1:30 but my swimming is atrocious! As said least its a benchmark now to keep beating!

Well done!

How much did you enjoy it?
05/08/2012 at 20:37
I loved it!....apart from the rear puncture which cost me about 5 minutes, but, nonetheless managed to finish in 1:32:24,.....cant wait for the next one!
