Got to the event location @ 9:30 AM, unloaded the car, setup my transition area, registered & walked around.
5 min jog around the parking lot with a few drills & stretches.
1st Run – 4km Out & Back:
For some reason the first km of the race, I didn’t feel “comfortable”. Once I got in to a groove, I felt more at ease. Maybe it was just nerves being that it was my first multisport event.
Bike Portion – 30k Out & Back with a small loop at the outer end:
Considering how hilly it was, I did manage to plan my strategy as I was riding…when to spin downhills for momentum, when to just glide to save energy, etc.
2nd Run – Same 4km Out & Back as 1st Run;
I was starting to feel it after the first km of the 2nd run. I took in some Gatorade at the transition and it didn’t seem to sit right. By the 2km mark, I had some funny feelings in my gut, but that settled within a few minutes.
Walked around & fed off the post race snacks, drank a few bottles of water.
