BROWNS RACE REPORT

 

Well I hope you had a fantastic Christmas and New Years. Today was my first race back since the Hawaii Ironman, I chose the second race of the Contact Energy New Zealand National series which was being held in Whangamata, this race has a lot of history and is often a great hit out to see how the form is. I was pretty worried going into this race, I suffered a nasty achilles injury during the Hawaii Ironman that stopped me running for 8 weeks so there wasn't much of a running base in my legs going in. I also needed to check my form before the New Zealand Half Ironman champs in a weeks time. The swim leg is one of the nicest in the sport, a two lap course taking in the famous whangamata surf, lucky for us it was only a few feet so there were a few nice waves to catch. I had a good solid swim to exit 1 min down on Brent foster and only 30secs down on the main pack, out onto the bike I quickly gathered in the leaders taking the lead by the 10km mark and then tried to gap them as soon as I could. Stephen Sheldrake and William Curtayne were the only ones to follow, I rode strong throughout and we all came into transition together. I was worried about the run the most as this is the area where I haven't been able to do much work in, plus the three lap run course had 5km of sand running in so I didn't want to have the achillies flare up again. But I was pleasantly surprised by how I ran and I ended up running shoulder to shoulder with William until the 9km mark when his last surge was too much, also being 15 years younger he had a bit more speed!!! So everything is on track in preparation for next weekends New Zealand Half Ironman Champs in Tauranga, The 20th anniversary of the event with a very strong field. There was a childrens triathlon straight after our race consisting of a 100m swim, 2km bike and 1km run and My son Braeden did his 2nd Triathlon.
