Splash ‘n Dash Aquathon Series – Race 2

This race is my first ever duathlon. I had butterflies the week of the race thinking about swimming 1500m since my swim is a little better than doggy paddling. I spent the prior weekends with a buddy of mine in open water off Gold Coast near Tuen Mun. At the race, I didn't realize they changed the course and it would be 3 laps.. I was focused on finishing 2 since this was the instructions I read on the internet; only to find out that it was changed at the last moment to 3 laps.

My swim consisted of 28 minutes for 750m. I believe I got lapped since the fastest guy finished the race in a little less an hour. I saw him before and he is a 30ish min 10k runner.

Because everyone wears the same cap, I wasn't disqualified but I will know that it will take me around 45 minutes for 1500m until I speed up with daily training in the pool
