06/21/2005: "Muskoka Long Course Triathlon"
This past Sunday was the much anticipated Muskoka long course Triathlon. Last year the short course (750m swim, 20km bike, 5km run) was my 2nd triathlon. This year I did the long course (2km swim, 55km bike, 15km run) to test out my training for the potential 1/2 ironman I'm looking to do on July 10th. Overall I had a great day, minus a flat tire with 4k left on the bike. I figure I lost about 6 minutes changing the tube, which would improved my placing by about 7 spots in my age group.
My overall time was 3:30:41, placing me 252th out of 654 finishers, 27/34 in my age group. My splits were:
35:08 swim (1:46/100m)
1:45:26 bike (31.3km/h)
1:08:04 run (4:33/km)
There was a large showing of people from Sudbury, whose results can be found at http://www.sudburyrocks.ca/Results/Muskoka/Muskoka2.htm
