We had a holiday booked after the Pwllheli Triathlon to see family in Mexico so whilst the training was low the fun and chill out was high and just what was needed! :-)
I managed to get a couple of early runs in around Puerto Aventuras Marina and a 3/4 mile open water swim over coral reefs across the bay whilst away which was fab!
Jet lag on the return wiped me out so overall the training this month has been a bit sparce...
21/4/12 ~ 7.8mile bike around Bradwall Green and Brereton Green
in 28mins 11secs averaging 16.6mph
24/4/12 ~ 7.6mile bike ride from Total Fitness in Crewe to
Sunday, 1 April 2012
The 400m pool swim was completed in 10mins 19seconds which was far from my best.
T1 (Swim to bike) was fairly respectable at 2mins 7 seconds.
A lovely 20km bike route out of the leisure centre, around Pwllheli Marina and then a two mile steep hill climb out of Pwllheli back towards Caernarfon turning right at Four Crosses towards Chwilog and then dropping down hill to the A497 back to Pwllheli... 48mins 4secs
T2 (Bike to Run) was 1min 19 secs
Followed up with a reasonable 5km run around Pwllheli Marina in 26mins 12secs
The transitions were all quicker than last time but with the exception of the run my other disciplines slower. Perhaps the 14mile 'dry run' bike ride the day before (which turned into a race pace sprint for the last 8 miles) followed up with a couple of pints of San Miguel and burger and chips the night before weren't the best pre race preparations?! ;-)
