Happy with my performance today, covering the 81km route in 3:11:05. Obviously such a short (albeit hilly) course wasn't going to test my endurance but I put in some intense efforts on the climbs.
I'm not quite sure how I managed to screw up the collection of polar data but the transponder system that they used gave me splits of 62:17, 80:41 and 48:07 - of course it would be useful to see the distances these relate to - but never mind.
As I finished I was 22nd out of 79 riders with many still out on the course. As it was a rolling start between 8am and 9am I could drift down the field quite a bit, but hopefully not too much. The first place rider covered the course in 2:38:14 which is no mean feat!
I'll be looking at the ful-on-tri website for results, having come in the bottom 10% for the ToSH last August it means a lot to me to place well in a 'competitive' ride and demonstrate how I've improved through training.
As long as I beat Paul Knowles ... (he works for the same company as me).
Update: Results are now available and I came 26th of 255 finishers which I'm really chuffed about. Paul came 31st, Yay!
