Swim bit wasn't fun, but otherwise it was my first triathlon and I loved every second of it and helped a bit that I was relatively competitive (technically I won my age group - lets ignore the fact that two of the people who finished ahead of me were older than me). My first transition wasnt great but the second one was really good so pretty happy with that. Weather was fantastic and even had to buy myself a cap for the run.
Roll on London in 5 weeks time, I think I will struggle, but its all a step in the right direction. I have 2 lots of open swim coaching booked between now and then so hopefully with that and some long bike rides I will be in good enough shape to finish the race.
