Twilight Triathlon

My first indoor triathlon! I want to try new things this year and do new races I've never done. This was an 8 pm race so I thought no biggie until I found out I was in wave 6, starting at 10:05 pm. Woof!  I went waaaaay too early (thought we had to be there for a 7:45 prerace meeting; turns out that was optional haha) but I learned a lot by watching the 5 heats before me.

20 min swim - 17 laps, each lap was 50 yds, for 850 yards total

20 min bike - 5.79 (whatever that means, they calculate the number from your watts and your weight)

20 min run - 22 laps or 2.75 miles

Total: 9.07

I ended up winning my age group and being the fourth overall female. I'll take it. My goal this winter is to improve my swimming so I'm going to do a masters swim class at a local Y this next session.  Pretty excited!
