OVERALL

Well I’m glad my first triathlon is behind me and I got past that fear of all the unknowns that come with trying something new, but I can definitely say it didn’t go quite as well as I had planned.

I’m working on my recap now, but let’s just say my #1 takeaway that I’d pass on to anyone training for their first triathlon (which I read A MILLION TIMES on other people’s blogs and in training books, but of course did not do…) is DO AN OPEN WATER SWIM BEFORE RACE DAY!

Recap Coming Soon…

  1. Congrats on finishing! Hey, you made it through the swim, didn’t you? But yes, training in open water makes a big difference. I was JUST telling that to someone who is doing their first tri and is very nervous about the swim. It’s all a learning process, right? ALL of my tris are!

    • Yup, I’m glad I got through my first one, but the swim certainly wasn’t the experience I was expecting! I really need to practice ocean swims more before my next one!

    • Yeah, I kind of had the same problem which is why I never did one. I’ll be writing a lot about my issues with the swim in the actual recap, so maybe you’ll find that you’ll be ok without a test swim once I explain the issues I had…
