Coles Bay 100

I had a great race at the Coles Bay 100. The 100km was made up of a 2km swim, 80km cycle and 18km run. I felt good in the water desipte a bit of chop and exited the swim 1st female and equal 4th overall. A smooth transition and I was onto the 2 lap bike course. I rode hard, feeling strong seeing how long it would take for any of the guys behind to pass me. The bike was pretty tough with some undulations and a bit of wind. I held off the chasers with a small group coming into T2 just behind me. Another smooth tranistion and I was onto the run. The run was a 3 lap course with a hill and a section on the beach. I managed to lap the rest of the women's field and crossed the line 4th overall.


Beauty Point

Round 3 of the Tasmanian Triathlon Series was held at Beauty Point. It was a 750m swim, 30km cycle and 5km run. I had a good swim and despite falling over in transition on the way to my bike felt pretty good. Once on the bike I was ready to go hard but didn't feel quite right. By 20km I realised I had a slow leak in my back tyre and stopped to fix it. I got off the bike and had to run extremely hard to catch young gun Hannah Geelan who was out in front. I finished with the win which gives me 3 from 3 for the series so far.


State Aquathon Champs

The Aquathon Champs were held by LTC at Trevallyn Dam on Saturday afternoon. I didn't have the ideal preparation with a 150km ride over hills that morning but it ended up being a great training day. The 1000m swim, 6km run was a challenging course, quite choppy in the water and a hilly, cross country style run. My legs were heavy on the up hills but the down hills were fun. I managed to hold for second place.
