    bench press: 5-5-5. wanted to see what it was like on my shoulder, felt pretty good! as long as i kept core tight etc, shoulder was fine. did 50-55-57.5. didn’t want to push my luck.

    then caught up on deads from earlier in the week:
    3-3-3 at 120 (a touch over 90%).. these also felt really heavy, but not too hard. certainly better than the 90% back squats

    then a bunch of recovery.. stretching, foam roller etc. wanted to fit a swim in but am cooking pork belly instead 😛

    Race report – warning a bit long – overall happy with the race, a much better result than 2 yrs ago when I last did this race by 4 mins.

    It was a non-wetsuit swim wasn’t sure whether that was good or bad, as wetsuit helps swim but getting it off can be tricky (its pretty new) we swam against the current for about 1km it was very choppy, until a left turn, then another left turn and finally swimming with the current.

    Long transistion to the bike, felt good running to the bike, off on the first of 4 laps – wind was up (nothing new there) so sidewind on way out and headwind on the way back, I stopped my watch at every lap – with each lap around the same time, so very consistent.

    I did not feel great on the bike – legs were complaining from the very beginning – was a bit upset by this as I have felt so good this week.

    Off the bike and into transistion – a pretty short T2 – legs were complaining – they didn’t like running off the bike too much. Shoes and cap on and out on the run, took the first lap pretty steady – at least that’s how it felt and stopped my watch at each turn – ran the next lap I felt faster, but the lap time shows 5sec slower, on the last lap I definitely speeded up but the time was the slowest lap, it does include the extra for the finish shute but not enough to justify the extra time!

    Nutrition wise – a bit of a disaster – this is my really weak area – ate pumpkin, sweet potato, egg white, olive oil and apple sauce for breakfast just after 5am this – drank at least 1 ltr of water before the race and also took a gel about 30mins before the start.

    Race started about 3hrs after breakfast, out onto the bike and drank coconut water but only drank 500ml for the whole of the bike leg – also took 1/2 gel on lap 2 of the bike and 1/2 gel on lap 3 of the bike – not a great amount!

    When I got off the bike for the run, my stomach was not happy and I had a minor stitch and “stomach full” feeling – but it was not as bad as I have had before and it did not affect my run – it got better as I ran which was good – I took water at every drink station on every lap 3 x 3 – but poured most of it over my head and just took a small mouthful to drink. Its the running that is affected when I eat, the biking is fine, but I always worry about eating on the bike and then having issues with my stomach on the run.

    Overall I did not actually feel great for most of this race – not sure if the nutrition played a part in how I was feeling or whether that was just me getting used to racing again?

    At the end of the race, I took Paleo Recovery Drink ate an apple and raisins + more water. Stayed for prize giving so didn’t get home to eat until about 3hrs after the race – did not feel great had a headache and my body was not happy either – ended up taking painkillers and lying on the sofa feeling sorry for myself. Took another 2hrs for me to feel pretty good and ate dinner about 3hrs after lunch – that has made me feel sooo much better and now I feel pretty normal but its about 8.5hrs after the race.

    Below are my results from today:
    Swim 30.05
    Bike 1.12.47
    Run 46.30
    Total 2.31.43
    Overall 6th in my age group out of 18 and 32nd out of 92 female starters
    Best leg was the run, followed by the bike then the swim – which shows an improvement as usually its run, swim, bike (my bike being my weakest leg)

    We stayed for prize giving and I won a spot prize of a $300 Orca wetsuit – how cool is that 🙂 – I’m actually hoping that I can use the voucher for a couple of tri-suits instead as my wetsuit is pretty new.

    Fantastic race report Jane, congrats on the 4 minute Pb. Even though you didn’t feel the best in the race, I bet your recovery will be better than it has in the past.
