Swim: First Triathlon this session so started off steady,then started to overtake a few people just after the 500m point,there was also a 420m uphill run to the transition included in my swim time.
T1: started good,just picked my bike up forgetting my cycle shoes (silly boy) easily corrected.
Bike: first 600m my chain came loose,so had to stop and put it back on,apart from that it was ok,just lacking practice going from swim to bike.
T2: good
Second run: didn’t feel good on most of the run as I had had way to much to eat for breakfast.
