Nepean Triathlon

This coming weekend has got to be the biggest weekend for Triathlon's in Sydney's west. The Nepean Triathlon started it's humble beginnings back in 1982 and has grown every year and is known as a race not to be missed. The main race consists of a 1km swim, 30km bike and 10km run. The weekend also holds the Enticer events as well as the Berry Rickards Swim Events which consist of a 500m, 1km and 5km swim held in the main lake.

I will be participating in this weekends activities in a team event and of course the leg I am partaking in is the 1km swim. I am thoroughly looking forward to pushing myself for the 1km as I know I won't have the other two legs to contend with, so I can sit back and cheer on my buddy Aaron. However, next year I will do this event. All of it.

My aim is to hopefully give him a pretty good lead by sticking with the big guns in the water. Having never swum this distance in a race before I know it will be all about starting out fairly hard and giving myself some good space in the water if possible, and then just finding a good rhythm and sticking to it - hopefully having some left in the tank to give it one good last hit at the end.
