How to Tackle the Mooloolaba Triathlon

  • Publicado em:

We got Australian triathlete Ryan Bailie to talking about the woes and hurrahs of his experience at the Mooloolaba Triathlon in Queensland. He wore the PUMA Faas 300s and placed 3rd.

Ryan Bailie: Out onto the run I found my rhythm quickly and found the run legs I have been searching for in my races earlier this season. With the brutal nature of the run course in Mooloolaba I was cautious with pacing as I wanted to have a strong back end to the race where a lot of people start to battle and places can be made up. With this in mind, I kept to my rhythm and plan and left nothing out on course crossing the line in 17th place.

As this race doubled as the Australian Champs, I ended up finishing 3rd (Australian), which is the first time I've been on the podium for a national senior title. Upon reflection I am satisfied with the outcome of the race though there is still plenty to take away to work on so I can get to that next level. The positives definitely outweigh the negatives. I learned a lot from the swim; the experience will make me a better swimmer in future races! And I found a lot of encouragement in my run leg. I am improving with every race.

Thanks again for sending out the PUMA Faas 300s. They are one great racing flat! One of the best flats I have raced in.
