I entered the water with more than a little trepidation after yesterdays effort. This time I was without wetsuit and more than just a little worried about the jelly fish. Fortunately we were on the other side of Philip Bay and there was no sight of any. After settling into my stroke I finished the 400m in 6.30'ish, ran up into transition well and onto Pauls bike.
It was weird, as I was sprinting out onto the road I realised not only was this not my bike, but I was in my running shoes and had never even ridden the bike. It was probably about 3-iches too short but once into the right gear I managed to pick off 65 cyclists and only get passed by 7, no bad considering it was a ATB with slicks.
I'm really looking forward to seeing my results as I had a fast(for me) 4k run and I was soon back in traansition tagging Don and after some 50-mins my race was over. Great fun.
Thanks very much to Don Barrow for posting to rec.sport.triathlon to offer the race place, and thanks to Paul for letting me use his bike and helmet. Great fun guys sorry I didn't see you to say goodbye!
