Race: Queensland Duathlon Champs
It was a freezing morning and a early start of a 3:30am wake up. Arrived at the venue at 5.30am for transition opening.
20 minutes with run drills and run through. Legs felt good. Body was freezing. That was the reasoning of the long warm up.
1st run: 5km
Had a very fast start with the girls going out full gas, they started to slow down, but I had power and legs felt good to keep my pace and get on the bike first.
Was a good mount onto the bike, however I was a bit slow with getting my shoes on.
Lots of hills, my gearing was alright, however I think I could of chosen better, as the laps went on my knowledge of how to ride the course improved. Legs were super tired at this point.
Shoes on and went, straight out in 1st with a 40 sec lead on 2nd place
Legs felt really heavy, but mentally I was feeling amazing which kept me going.
Race Winner – fastest Female
18-19 years Queensland Champion
What I have learnt from this race:
Riding the course at least once before the race. And my turning down the hills on the bikes were sloppy. The run, I know I went out to hard, so I need to know my pace. Other than that I am very happy with race.
