I registered for the Sweat Your Thorns Off 5K, even though its not super sweaty right now here in Massachusetts.
I had a busy day on saturday working, and wanted to get a short ride in to test out my newly fixed bike before Sunday's race, so I decided to call the run portion of my triathlon as my SYTO race.
I first set-up in transition
Then after my swim & bike (race recap for the triathlon will be later), I headed out for my run!
It was a loop course, where each lap you collect a wristband, and you needed 4 bands to finish. The race started with a small incline and the first wristband. After the first incline, the rest of the loop was flat & downhill. AWESOME. I was doing some speedy miles for just coming off 13 miles on the bike.
|1 lap left!|
My last lap, I picked up speed and picked off a few people. My legs felt great, my breathing was steady, and I finished strong. On a long course!
If you recall, faster than my tempo run from thursday. Sweet!
I also didn't stop my Garmin from bike to run and my transition time was calculated in to my splits.
3.48 miles in 36:07
HUGE thanks to Adam @ The Boring Runner for putting on a fun virtual race!
I promise I'll do the full Triathlon report once I get my official time!
