During the January Indoor Tri, I felt that things had gone well. Unfortunately, that did not repeat during the Feb race. This time, my mom joined me and raced her first Indoor Tri!
In the swim, I physically about 5 yards shorter. But because I didn’t hit the wall before the whistle blew, it counted as one less length. Even still, I was able to hold the bilateral breathing for a little longer this time round. But that was where the good ended…
I lost at least 3 minutes on the bike. When I realized just how much time I had lost, I tried to make up for it — probably hitting 23 or 24 on a stationary bike. But I also paid for it, as I was limping a little after the bike.
Things just got worse on the treadmill. While I tried to run, I just couldn’t hold a consistent pace until the very end. So it was mostly a walk.
While it was not the race I wanted, I’m still glad that I did it.
