I wore my manzella hat which kept me toasty warm, although i didn't pull over my ears till the end of the run. I always forget my ipod when I go outside. I had my nike gloves on, which are perfect to keep my hands warm AND they help wipe my snot away. Had my new running tights from roadrunners and their brand and they were perfect.
My times were not as fast as I thought I would go. I thought I would do sub 10 minutes but I didn't.

Swimming tips, go google immersion swimming and try their drills. These will help. It seems that you need to swim with more of the thought that you are sliding and gliding and reaching. Not sure if that helps ? I will give more tips as I get more. I have signed up for a triclass at my gym with the ironlady, the next 4 saturdays at 6.30am till 9am I will be getting all sorts of tips and my ass kicked.
