On Sunday 22nd April, Sarah Black made her way to the start line of the Ribby Hall triathlon wondering just how much time she could take off last year’s 1.09.40. After working on 6 areas in the last 4 months Sarah went into the race feeling like she could take around 4 mins off her 2011 time and come in around 1.05.00 – all being well!
After a slick T1 Sarah was focused on staying controlled throughout the bike in order to set-her up for a good run – and a good run it was! Sarah’s splits for 2011 came in at 8.15 / 36.16 / 25.09. In 2012 & after executing a near perfect race, Sarah’s splits were 7.30 / 32.05 / 22.55 for a rapid total time of 1.02.30 and a well deserved podium with 3rd overall female. So quite a good start to the season!
2013 European qualifier Grendon Sprint is next on the list on 13th May.
