Another good race for me. Perfect conditions for the first test of the year. Preparation was OK, but I was feeling fit rather than fast.
400m pool swim
13 mile bike
3.25 mile run
Ended up placing 3rd overall in a time of 1:04:54 - Happy with that. There wasn't an over 40's category though, so no prize for that!

What was the distance of your 8 minute swim? The one on Sunday was only 400m and my actual time in the water was 5:37.
Hopefully I'll get a bit faster soon as well as I haven't done any speed work yet, just a fair amount of base training over the winter. It's nice to know that the two guys who beat me are not only much younger than me but also train just as hard.
I need to work on my bike split though as I should easily be able to knock off another couple of minutes there - especially if I blow some money on aero wheels and a pointy hat!!!
same distance as you, roughly but 15 mile bike and 3 mile run hobble walk hop ouch that hurts my knees type event.
as i said top times, i bet the pool was downhill with an incoming tide!!
