Quarter Ironmaori Triathlon, by @kiwibloke

This has to be the best short Ironmaori races I have done to date. Right out at the gate I was in the top 20 riders group for the 1st 15km of the course. Then the elite riders just took off, but that was OK, our now established group just carried on at a good average pace of 32km/hr.

This year a new course was mapped out, due to the unpredictable conditions of the Lagoon for the swimming leg. The swimming now took place directly in the sea on the sheltered east side of Napier City, which became the start and centre point of all 3 legs (swim, cycle, run). This turned out to be perfect for both the swim and the run, unfortunately (in my opinion) the cycling leg lost a bit of a challenge with their being no significant hill climbs.

As always this is an extremely well organized race which is a great starting point for those starting taking their 1st steps into this sport.

Looks like you went a bit slower this time! Remember that it's important to take some rest days, and do some rehab / prehab / strength and conditioning training too! If you weren't intending to go slower, take a moment to listen to your body, and see if you need something. Check in with yourself!
