You had to row for 10 minutes on a rowing machine, then bike 30 minutes on a stationary bike, then run 20 minutes on a treadmill. Easy right? NO, not when you've already ran 15 miles and not when you are going FULL out effort to compete. But for some reason I had TONS of energy. I felt fantastic when I started the competition.
I gave it my best and tried hard to just do my best with each event. Taking one event at a time and not worrying about the entire competition. The first event was rowing and it went okay. I didn't row as far as I thought I could go, but it went well. The biking went amazing. I biked super fast and felt great. I had the 2nd longest distance for females biking and I'm not sure how, but I did. Ok I do know how. I pushed on that bike harder than I've ever biked in my life. It paid off. When I got to the 3rd event of running I was sure that I wouldn't be able to run given how much I pushed in the 2nd event, but to my surprise I felt so awesome, so incredibly great. So I pushed on the running and ran 2 miles in the 20 minutes which may not seem like much or fast or anything to you, but I've now done at least 7 indoor triathlons and I've NEVER ran more than 1.80 in an indoor tri.
After all the distances were added I actually won my age group, that surprised me. I figured I'd place with such a huge distance on the bike, but to win my age group was fantastic. Awards were only given for overall winners and #1 in each age group. I won a $25.00 gift card to Performance which I can use on smoothies. Below are some pictures and then I copied all the results below that if you care.
