Hey Kat – thanx for your question. The swim/bike combo is surely the cause of you running slower. So look to become both stronger and more efficient, in the first 2 legs of the race. It will allow to start the run feeling “fresh” and ready to run better.

Then it could also help to do more specific training on the run. So that you are ready to go in all 3 legs.

Lastly, nutrition/hydration plays a significant factor in the 2nd half of a middle distance event. Make sure you are not “scraping bottom” at any point in the race, and you should have energy till the end!

All the best in your race 🙂
