Jo said: “I returned for my second Edinburgh Women’s Triathlon this year and was determined to enjoy it more than last year as I have been having swimming lessons and can now swim front crawl. Me & Krista were in the same swim heat & lane which was nice and we ended up with only 4 instead of 6 swimmers in our lane so I felt a lot more relaxed, as the swim is the part I worry about most! Lovely group of women and everyone is just as nervous so that makes it a lot easier.

Swim went much better this year and I enjoyed it more, out the pool to transition which again I was more organised and quicker getting onto the bike and off for the 10k cycle. The sun was shining and it was a lovely day so I was really enjoying being on the bike and managed up the hill at the start taking over a few folk which helped my confidence, the cycle is a nice loop route on the roads with a fast downhill section as well then back to transition for the run section. The run I find is also a tough part as your legs aren’t quite moving as they normally would but it gets easier once you get into a decent pace and rhythm. The support was great as well with Fraser, Lawrence & Gordon cheering us on plus a lot of women from our cycling club were taking part as well so we were well supported!

Great event this year and I managed to knock 10mins off last years overall time so I’m happy with that!
