My new helmet arrived this morning - a bright yellow "Limar" from Italia via Dean Woods Direct in Wangaratta. This was to replace my Giro that was cracked and renderred unsafe in the car prang. Whooppee!

The Aquathon this evening was a 600m swim followed by a 6km run. Felt pretty good in the swim, and even remebered to push a bit at times, instead of adding a meandering effort to my my meandering navigation.

Last from my wave (the last) out of the water, I had slight difficulty in gettin my wet and dirty feet into my shoes, but was off on the best leg (I love running). With loads of people from the previous waves and a 2 lap course, there was quite of lot of company, even if they were in the other direction. The body held up well, being able to take in some water at each turn around, 1.5k; 3k; and 4.5k without ill effect this time. Even splits of about 6:50 for each 1.5k lap meant that I was pretty happy. Cycled home with lights in the twilight, arriving back at 8.30pm pretty happy with the way things are going.

I wonder if entering the Triathlon on Sunday is really stupid.
