This race marked a year since my first triathlon, and so it offered a great opportunity to see if a year of training had paid off.
I knocked exactly 2 minutes off my swim time and over 3 minutes off my bike split compared with last year’s result. Overall, I finished nearly four minutes faster and was 135th male (last year I was 221st). I was a tad disappointed with a slower run than the previous year but I think this could partly be blamed on the heat (around 25C) and it was still the 68th fastest on the day. Regardless it was a great weekend away with the UEA Tri team, and another excuse to wear my new Beacon tri suit.
