Well, today was the day: The South Bay Duathlon.
A 10K run, a 40K ride, and a 5K run through urban Morgan Hill. For those who are metric-challenged, that’s 6.2, 25, and 3.1 miles respectively.
It was my first foray into the world of multisport. The linking two sports I have come to love and enjoy: running and cycling. One I’ve become pretty confident at (running) and the other I’d still consider myself a dabbler (cycling.)
I’ll post a race report later this week, but my preliminary times were:
- Overall Time: 2:38:11
- Run 1: 46:40 @ an avg pace of 7:32
- T1: 1:30
- Bike: 1:25:01 @ an avg pace of 17.6 mph
- T2: :50
- Run 2: 24:10 @ an avg pace of 7:48
More to follow later this week, including some highlights, lowlights, a couple of funny occurrences, and definitely some learning moments.
