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.
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.
