BUCS Sprint Triathlon - Miriam Tyler

BUCS Sprint – Despite arriving at 10 am to race at 10:30 am, I got to the pool briefing on time. The swim was pretty confusing, with loads of overtaking and undertaking so I forgot how many lengths I was on but managed to swim a massive PB of 12:13. The bike went really well too and despite lots of traffic and a few hold ups on the course due to cars, I did the 25 km in 46:46 and even overtook some girls with aero bars and snazzier bikes. The only disaster of the day was when I came into T2, I couldn’t find my trainers so spent a good minute looking for them. Oops! By the time I got to the run, it was getting hotter so I knew I wouldn’t be going at my fastest. I started off at 4:20min/km pace but slowed to come in at 22:24 which given the heat I was pretty happy with. Overall, really happy with how the race went. I came 69th out of 210 girls which I’ll take. Thanks to Beacon for all the support! I can’t wait to race on my new bike from TriHarder in the BUCS Standard in a couple of weeks!
