My experience: The triathlon took place in the reservoir and on the day the weather was grey, rainy and about 12 degrees.I was wondering why I had come out when I could be at home! Luckily the weather improved a bit just before the start and I managed to swim quite well and then the weather chilled off for the bike ride!
Fortunately it was only 40km on the bike and then we could start running. The run was quite difficult and I was pleased to finish and have a ot cup of tea!
