8 AM

Swimming race 41:19 [5] 2.5 km (16:32 / km)

Left perth at 4.45am, arrived at Busselton at 7.10, 20 minutes to spare before rego closes.

Overall a good result in particular after such a long day yesterday. Had a good start, after 800m lost the feet I was following which I was so disappointed at the time. Conditions deceptive, managed to survive at a good pace till the end.

Disappointed with the time but looking at the winning time and the capability of those top 3 swimmers I suspect the course was long.

12th overall, 7th male, 2nd in age category.

Spent the rest of the day around Margaret river region
8 PM

Cycling 35:00 [3]

Felt weird and didn't feel strong, glad I didn't push on, time for sleep.

Noticed after finishing my seat has moved backwards.

Cycling 5:44:00 [3]

Really wanted to start at 5am today, slept through alarms. Getting stronger, was a tough return from the freeway to the coast, sea breeze already in.

Do not feel like putting out controls now!
2 PM


Putting out controls , did as much as I could in the car plus four smallish loops which became a task and a half to complete in time due to loosing 30-40 mins looking after some random while waiting for the ambo to arrive.

6 AM

Cycling 1:05:20 [3]

5*5 mins at 220 watts. Speed was showing 32-33kmh when at 220 which doesn't seem right.

** well the speed is correct, amazing the difference when you select hoods to aero bars goes straight up to just over 38km/h
7 AM

Running 25:52 [3]

Quick shower between sessions, 13 minutes out, still able to come back quicker even though pushing into a slight head/cross wind

Running 43:20 [2]

What a stupid time of the day to go for a run, drove to Carine Regional Open space. Didn't stop too much during the run, just taking mental notes and wrote down all the control descriptions at the end. Typical stuff of having to move the circle on a handful of controls.

I think Sten will go sub 30.

Went to Carine Cycles which I wasn't to sure if it would be open with the closure of Cottesloe Cycles, bought a tube for mum. Went over to her place and the front wheel was missing so couldn't fix the flat tyre.
6 PM

Cycling 1:01:30 [3]

Will be interesting to see if I go to Busselton on Saturday night or Sunday morning, might be determined by the time I get away from metro series. Going to do the 2.5km option, lake lesch swim looks enticing but I am (a) not prepared to be beaten by Joanna in a swimming race and (b) Busselton/ Margaret river gets me so many bonus points from the wife.
