1st female out the water 🏊♀️💦 6th / 7th (ish) out of a pack of about 140 #calfman#swimleg
So yesterday was race day and after doing a few sprints tri , I thought it was about time to step up the distance.
So I competed in @bigcow_events Calfman Triathlon. Which was made up of a 950m swim 🏊♂️ 46km bike 🚴♂️ 10.5km run 🏃♂️ Swim was on the borderline of being a non wetsuit swim. But I choose to go with wetsuit which I regretted about 300m into the swim As i got too hot and start feeling sick 🤢. Swim time was 20min 36sec for 950m 🏊♂️. Headed out of T1 and on to bike course to the start 46km one lap route which had a lovely 1.7km hill climb after 20km. This was also my first race using tri bars and an aero helmet. Bike time was 1hr 22mins 42secs for 46km 🚴♂️. Headed out of T2 to tackle the 10.5km run course which consisted of a two lap run around Emberton Park.
Run time was 51mins 4secs for 10.5km 🏃♂️ Overall time was 2hr 36mins 18secs. This meant I came 2nd in my age group and 37th overall.
Thank you to everyone that came and supported me yesterday. And Thank you to everyone that has helped me along my journey so far in Triathlon , whether it has been with selecting my bike. Or setting my training sessions. Or on race days with driving me to them. Or helping me with my recovery. @lauulouu@email@example.com@triswimcoaching@amy43018@triuk@huubdesign@everyoneactive@anytimeuponavon#swimbikerun#triathlon#huubdesign#bigcowevents#calfman#progress#addicted#thankyou#loveit#everyoneactive

I always walk the dogs at dusk, but sometimes I go a touch too late and shuffle back in the dark. Tonight there was a strong moon. There's a melancholy-seeming bloke living in a shack on this road who rescues male calves from the dairy and hand feeds them milk bottles in the afternoon. He's very shy though sometimes he gives me a smile as I pass. I really want to take a photo but it seems so intrusive. Him in his beautiful calf-full world. .

The weekly struggle, why do they make calf machines for little boys? #525 #CalfMan
