First 11.4km in 0:58:36. Did not push too hard , conserve for the long day ahead.
1st 11.4k Run
Had a good ride, except for 2 minor setbacks i.e. pulled my right calf midway in 1st lap, then pulled left hamstring midway of 2nd lap. Recovered fast but lost some time and positions. Finished the 64km bike leg in 2:05:41, on target with average speed of slightly above 30km/h.
Best moments on the bike - zooming pass the crowd after 1st lap. The crowd was fantastic. Cheering and snapping away their cameras. Am not an elite but the crowd made me feel like one.
Rained in the first 2km of the last run leg. But rain stopped and sun came out. Pulled my right hamstring 1km into the run but recovered before 2km mark.
In pain - 2nd 11.4km run.
Approaching Finish Line - 4:25:29
