I did the Duathlon at Camp Pendleton on Saturday. Started out with a 5K run through some parking lots, then out a gravel fire road to the turn around, then back. I started nice and easy, maybe too easy. Tried to keep a pace I felt I could maintain for a long time so I didn't burn out.
Got back to the transition area, and I think there was only about 15 bikes left Not a good sign. Got on the bike, that felt better than running. I passed a bunch of people on the bike part, but for as slow as I was at the first run, that isn't saying a whole lot. The bike portion was 30K, almost 19 miles. I finished it in under an hour, I think my Garmin read about 56 minutes.
Back to the transition area, running shoes back on, and took off. My goal was to jog the entire 2nd 5K, to not have to walk, and finish under 2 hours. I ended up walking a little on the last run, I was worn out. Finished at 2:03, next to last in the Clyde class.
I need to practice running more, I was not "race ready" for that much running but it was a good time and now I feel more motivated to work on my running.
