20 plus mile an hour winds greeted us as triathletes entered the water for the SGtri. Swimming into 3 foot waves made it a challenge for just your regular triathlon swim. I kept swimming and swimming and told myself I would make it. A dissapointing swim for me. As soon as I got in rhythm a wave would throw me off track again and again. I finally made it out 8 minutes longer than I was expecting. The run was mediocre as my goal was to run a 7:45 min mile and ended with an 8:24min mile. I had to pee the whole time on the run and didnt want to stop.
The swim for the 900 Sprint athletes was xld and turned into a Biathlon. The wife hammered out an awesome race averaging over 17mph on the bike and running a 7:57. min. mile. She did very well. Next week for her is the Women of Steel tri. Maybe I should be getting her the tri bike!!
