XOSize Race 1 Race Report

This morning I did the first of the Xosize 10/11 Series

When I woke up this morning I could hear the windy outside and I thought I hope the bay would not be too rough. Lucky for me it was not.

We headed down to the course around 6am and got numbered and heading into the Transition area. After getting setup, etc. headed down to the swim start and put in a quick swim to test the waters per say.

At 7:15am the horn sound and off we went. I must say the swim was poor, not my best effort, but after not spending much time in the pool showed in my performance in the bay this morning. After hitting transition and loosing place of my of bike I got my act together and headed out on the bike. Passed heaps of bike which is good thing shows that I am strong on the bike. Heading down to Sandringham was quick mainly due to the north wind this morning, but was a little hard work on the return trip back. Hit transition again swapped the bike for runners and headed out on the run. The run felt ok not fast but ok. Got home in 46m 56s. The goal was to do sub 47min. Goal reached.
