LA Triathlon!

I actually owe Pyslent about 4 race reports (Born to Run 50K, Culver City 5K, Conquer the Bridge Half Marathon, Pacific Coast Sprint Tri & a 16 mile R/T run up & down a 4000 foot climb. LA Triathlon? I killed it. 

My swim is what it is, 42:20 for 1500m. Transitions still suck, 6:20 getting on the bike. Then I cruised, 40km (25 miles) in 1:21:30. Second half was faster than the first.

Get this! 8:50, 9:02, 7:43, 8:37, 8:44 and the last mile in a ridiculous (for me) 7:03. I’ve only ever run 1 race mile that fast, and it included a 300 foot downhill. I was flying! Final time 3:05:19! That’s a full 25 minutes faster than my 2 year old previous Olympic race.  Yeah, I kicked ass at the LA Triathlon!
