The ocean swim was AWESOME. I'm not sure if it was the salt water or the fact that I was making my my own Micheal Jackson video as I was putting on my wetsuit, making sure the crotch was all the way up. (I had a couple of people suggest that my wetsuit wasn't pulled all the way up and that could have been causing it pull down.) Except for getting some salt water every time I took a breath and not really putting my head in the water (for someone who likes salt as much as I do, I'm not so keen on swallowing as much salt water as I did, or tasting the salt water as I breath out) it was great. I'm pretty sure that I didn't complete the 1/2 mile swim distance.
The bike was okay. I could have been faster, but the path was narrow and well populated, making passing difficult. I also didn't want to push myself to hard until I knew how my legs would feel for the run. I did about 8-9 miles of the 12.
The run was as usual. I think I should be able to keep my short distance pace for the run. My knee did start talking to me, this is normal after a long run and I don't think I'm completely rested from Monday's race. I'm hoping with proper rest, I'll be able to complete the mileage. As it was I did about 2.5 miles with the walking.
I loved that I did this mockathlon (a term coined by my husband). It gave me the confidence I needed. The knowledge that I can do this, although I do need to work on my transition time.
