SDRC Labor Day Triathlon

Today was the 2nd annual SDRC Labor Day Triathlon. This is the second year I've competed in the triathlon. It's in the order of swim-bike-run. With all my triathlon's this year and the 3 I did last year, I was much better prepared for the triathlon this year than I was last year. When I did this triathlon last year, it was only the second triathlon I ever did.

The triathlon went pretty well. I feel like I could've done a little bit better. My final time was 1:35:10.4

I started to get really discouraged on the bike because I was counting all the people that were passing me and how many people I was passing. 24 people passed me on the bike, and I only passed 2 people. That really upset me. I just feel like by now, with all the triathlons I've done, I should be doing better than that. My average speed on the bike was about 15.2 mph.

The run wasn't too bad. The only thing I don't like about the swim-bike-run is by the time I get to the run, I'm getting tired, so it makes the run a little harder to do. But I did the run with an 11 minute mile. Not as bad as I thought.

My time on this triathlon is about average for all of my times this season, I just feel like after doing as many triathlons as I've done (3 last year and 6 this year so far), I should be doing a little better than what I am.

Oh well, at least I didn't finish last! :) Now, here are some pictures:
