Ok! I FINISHED!! A few people fell out of the race but other then them i was LAST. I SERIOUSLY underestimated the SWIM.... SERIOUSLY! 1/2 mile and after about 10 strokes i knew i was gonna be suffering.. the main thing was the pool -lake difference and just not having a solid stroke flat out.. So my swim was brutal..
my legs were shot and i thought about calling it a day.. but my goodness i COULDNT quit... seriously i just couldn't form the words. After serving the swim i'll be DANGED if i quit.
The ride was pretty brutal because of my legs.. but half way through i was about to pick up the pace quite a bit.. i actually caught some of the ladies finishing up (they ALL passed me on the swim and i had a 3 min head start hahah).
So now its war! me and swimming! if i would have got out the dang water faster it could have been interesting.. more people seemed to struggle on the bikes than swimming.. i was the other way around.
The motivation from all of the top athletes and crowd was A....MAZING! it'll keep you going!
1 Sprint Tri down! more to come*
*(If the swimming improves...the feeling of drowning or the fear because your tired.. yeah.. no thank you.. i think 1/4 mile swim is more reasonable haha)
