07/31/2006: "Espanola Tri '06"

Yesterday was my 3rd go at the Espanola Triathlon... and I managed to get a PB for the 3rd year in a row. The conditions were ideal (except some lingering patches of odours coming off of the paper plant)... cool, and cloudy, meaning I didn't bake on the run, and the sun wasn't in our eyes in the second half of the swim. In the past couple years I've finished around 11th (2004), 7th (2005) but always 4th in my age group. This year there was a different mix of people, and I placed 4th overall and 4th in my age group. Seems like I'm doomed to place 4th in my age group. Anyway, it was a fun race, and nice to see so many people from Sudbury there. My overall time was 1:11:00

My approximate splits were:
750m swim 11:41 (1:33/100m)
T1 approx 1:30
20k bike 34:59 (34.3 km/hr)
T2 apprix 1:13
5k run 21:36 (4:19/km)
