SuperSprint Corporate Triathlon 2009

April 5, 2009 – 2:51 pm


I did my first ever triathlon this morning. It was a baby one, an enticer some people call it; 400m swim, 8km ride and a 4km run.  The swim was in the harbour between Mrs Macquarie’s chair and the Opera house. The ride and run were around Mrs Macquarie’s chair, The Domain and up to St Mary’s cathedral.

It was easier than I expected it to be. I had a bit left in the tank about 2/3 the way through the run so i cranked it up a bit and pushed hard all the way to the finish.  I really enjoyed it.

I’m looking forward to training for the SMH Half Marathon now.

UPDATE 5pm: the results just came in.  I was fortunate to be in a team with some fit and experienced guys! My transition times were long, several minutes each. I’ll have to work on that.
