My Results here:

Swim: 400m
Bike: 20km
Run: 5km

I’m dead chuffed with a 14/124 result and hope I can keep improving. Looking at my results below it would appear I have a strong run, especially coming off the bike. I did feel I pushed my run hard today and felt I pushed the bike harder than I probably should have done.


2014 vs 2015:

[table id=1 /]

I exported the results from RWB 2014 and RWB 2015. I’ve taken competitors who competed in both 2014&2015 and then combined some import information into the same table. The information included is the 2014 & 2015 overall position, their 2015 bib number (in case you want to look them up), their name & gender, their overall time for both 2014 & 2015 and then finally the YoY difference (Year on Year). On average we can see there is a 4 minute, 12 second increase in time to complete 2015 vs 2014. I put this down to a couple of factors. One will be the increase in distance of the run course to make it 5KM this year (it was short in 2014). The weather in 2015 was also very different, with a lot more rain and wind. 2014 was wind free and the sun was beating down in all it’s glory. I guess I could create another table which compares the run times of 2014 to 2015 to confirm that the increase of time was mostly in the run, but for now you are stuck with this data. If you’d like my original excel spreadsheet please ask and I’ll happily share it with you.

From my own personal gain in these stats, I’m happy to see that my time difference was only a 55second increase, which is great when you compare it to the average. That would also probably help explain the overall position increase from 45 to 14 (that and a lot of people who were better than me last year didn’t race this year, which made it easier for me). Although the biggest kudos must go out to Angie Tanner which a 14 minute 40second improvement from last year. Whatever she is doing training wise is obviously paying off.
