The big day came.........maninjapan

Hi all, well this sunday my big day came and on a freezing cold morning i did the much anticipated swim 1km, bike 60km and run 12km in a respectable 3hours 2 minutes, the swim was good and i finished third in my wave with 19min 23 seconds. I have been worried sick about swimming but it came and went so fast and i even won my lane with a slow easy stroke (thanks for all the advice)...absolutely blitzed the bike with 1hour 40mins in hard wind and rain and then had a decent consistent run of 1hour 2 minutes..... it felt good coming 52nd overall out of 260 from all over japan. Before the race i was ranked 260 of 260, so it felt good to come up so well, looking for my next race right now............thanks all.
well done!empacher6seat

especially on the swim, that's great to hear. I'm glad you finally overcame everything in time to kick ass at the race!
That is great!js5280

Sounds like an awesome performance. I would assume you have some serious professionals amongst the top so a 52nd overall is very impressive. Glad you found stroke and were able to get your nerves under control. No doubt next time will be even better. Congratulations!
