What a hectic weekend!
Traveling over 18hrs by car on Thursday evening and arriving on Friday afternoon, where we found the race venue and got a local to show us the route, which was very fast and mostly flat on both the run and cycle route.
On Saturday I was up bright and early to go and test out the course on almost race conditions as my race would start at 8am on Sunday morning!
Saturday Course Trial Ride
Sunday Morning, RACE DAY!
Up early, it was FREEZING between 4 and 8 degrees :0
But I was ready and nervous for my first Duathlon National!
On the Start line
In the run I stayed in the top three most of the way but then dropped off the speed just before the transition, I could feel my running was not up to speed (as a result of being off running for more than a run because I had sever blistering)
I caught up a lot on the cycle and maintained my position on the final run.
I placed 4th which I was very happy about considering it was my first National Duathlon & 2nd Duathlon ever!
Thanks to my Province (KZN) for all the support on the weekend!
