Byron Bay Triathlon: Recap

The day was fine and still and a very pleasant 24 degrees.

What went well?

The swim. (next time remove sand from race nicks before bike leg to minimize chaffing.)

The ride…a pb. Good position on bike. Training on Aero bars paid off.

Better hydration next time with the new bottle between bars. Can drip feed. Next training round I need to practice getting in and out of bike shoes on the road, not clunking through transition in my cleats.

 

The run...just as I trained for. Very happy with that. The garmin virtual trainer keep me right on pace, each lap went off like clockwork. Train next time using the trainer to set my goal pace.

Nutrition really worked. Carb laoding 3 days out. Felt good, not depleted and got great times. Also eating my carbs in mornings after workouts and then hitting protein and light food before sleep allowed me to wake fresh each morning, ready to hit the roads. (or the bay).

Finished up not sore or hurt or suffering, with a smile on my face and my best tri times ever.
