I finished the triathlon last week and most importantly, I didn't drown. Although I probably didn't do as much training as I should have, I managed to complete the swim in about 25 minutes, which was five minutes faster than my goal. For the most part, I alternated between freestyle and breast stroke, which helped me keep my breath while continuing to move.
Although the swim portion went faster, the bike leg went slower due to a leaky front tire. I pushed through on a flat tire for most of the race. Not fun, incredibly slow, but I still got done.
The run was the easiest part - just a 5K run. For the first time all day, I actually managed to pass other racers (all of whom had already passed me on the bike, but still) for the first time all day.
I finished the whole race in just over 2 hrs.
